  1. East Los Angeles off the 60fwy on Atlantic I got download speeds uo to 19.77 mbps and 6.76 upload on my Galaxy S3

  2. Had 4g only around Normandie & Melrose LA...but it's gotne as of monday nght...bring back please...galaxy s3

  3. Yeah, even says so on my Sprint statement. Went around edge of east LA last weekend. Didn't notice it when had it or would have tested it.

  4. I have full 4g at Wilshire Center, rampart village, silver lake, los Feliz, and Atwater village. I am also getting 4g in studio city by universal and forest lawn off the 101/134/170 and parts of North Hollywood. I'm a paramedic so I'm everywhere. I can download 5gig nzb files in about 10 min.

  5. I got 4g speeds in downtown Burbank. Near Olive Ave I got speeds up to 16.43 mbps.

  6. 4G LTE with Sprint in downtown LA? are u kidding me? I live and work in the heart of downtown la, i got Samsung G S3, i am only connected on a 3g all the time, some minor areas catches 4G only NOT even LTE and it fluctuates all the time. The strength is very weak. Yes i agree there are some area that there is 4G but NOT 4G LTE, 4g speed is just moderate speed, not like a lightning speed as everybody expected it.

    • I'm sorry to hear that.

      That's quite possible. You could be getting interference from the buildings. All we are reporting is that is appearing in some parts of town along major corridors. That's we advise people in Los Angeles to wait to buy LTE Sprint smartphones until the whole system is deployed or areas were you frequent.

  7. In Whittier. (Painter ave & Whittier Blvd) 35.43 down and 9.71 up!! I have a screen shot also. Note 2. Super fast!!
