I have a Sprint 3g/4g wireless card & so far I am not impressed at all with 4g. I travel all over the country & where I do get 4g its sometimes very very fast like Houston is the fastest speed ive seen yet but other areas like say Amarillo & several others I actually have to switch the card over to 3g for better speed. I know its a fairly new technology so I will keep my fingers crossed but from my experience so far, I wouldnt be running out to grab a 4g device of any kind just because it says 4g doesnt always mean its better.

Yeah, well it is still brand new and I'm in the Phoenix area and last I heard sprint hadn't even touched any part of the metro area. Verizon from what I've read will be the more agressive of the carriers and will most likely surpass sprint in coverage very quickly. They have around 35 cities to have the coverage by years end, of course no enabled phones to go with it. Air cards first, phones later in mid 2011. They were saying something about a 4G BB by mid 2011 also. What I was reading mentioned the issue with size of device and battery drawdown being a prob. Maybe sprints evo was designed big for a reason. So the diff articles I was reading said they are working on the size issue caused by the new technology before devices will be more readily available. Also went on to say LTE is headed to be more of a worldwide standard than wi-max which sprint is using. Meaning in the future we will be able to use our verizon phones overseas with less issue on the various LTE networks. Verizons footprint for LTE, they claim will be completely out there by 2013-14. Now all we have to worry about is the pricing structure.
I got this info from an Arizona Republic business tech writer who was just rewriting the same info I had already seen from various tech stuff that I get via email. Just passing it along, FWIW.

I was using Sprint wireless cards before there was even 3g & when they started rolling out 3g they did so amazingly fast. When I 1rst got this 3g/4g card they were only in 20 markets on 4g now they are in over 50. Its not the rollout that scares me, its the technology thats scaring me.
I do worry that a lot of people are all fired up to get 4g & will be hugely disappointed. I doubt Verizons will any better but time will tell. Everyone seems to be in a race to push out 4g & we all get screwed as a result

The 9650 obviously doesn't use WiMax cuz your bill didn't go up $10 a month when you bought itNeed an app for your blog/business or want some BB10 coding help? PM me for rates
