Fact of the matter is that sprint store employees are clueless and this article from April does not address how sprint has been and is continuing to build out LTE as well.
Sprint store rep told me not to expect LTE until March - LTE has been lighting up around Chicago Land since july / aug. - Its been at my house the last few week.
As users are upgraded to LTE Devices the Wimax and 3G networks will have the load offset
If sprint got really crappy in your area it seems that service goes down as they are adding new towers.
Use to have terrible voice service at my house but now that LTE is my area my Voice and 3G speeds are way better now too
