LTE guide: what LTE is, how it works, and how it affects you

by: Nate SwannerJanuary 10, 2013
Terms like 4G and LTE have been tossed around with abandon the past year or so. Every carrier is either touting their LTE network, or promising you’ll have it soon. LTE is definitely our future, but it’s not our present. We are on the brink of some really fast data transmission speeds, so let’s get to know our new friend LTE. Is it really the new Standard? More importantly, when will you get it?

Sprint: No More WiMax Phones, Focusing on LTE

by: AlexanderJanuary 16, 2012

There was so much news last week at CES, there is still more news trickling down to us. Sprint said last week at CES that their focus is now on LTE and producing LTE devices, meaning they are done with WiMax. You might remember back in the spring of 2010, Sprint was the first to market a 4G device, the HTC EVO 4G, although it was WiMax 4G and not LTE 4G. Which as we now know WiMax didn’t pan out like the way Sprint wanted.

Sprint is now in the process of migrating their WiMax coverage over to LTE which is what Verizon and AT&T are already using for their 4G networks. LTE has now become the standard in wireless, with half of the major US carriers already having it [...]

Sprint LTE Set to Land in 2012 – New Phones On the Way Too

by: Matthew SabatiniDecember 11, 2011

Just recently, we wrote an article about all of the U.S. LTE wireless providers. It was easy to tell that Verizon had a firm grip on the LTE market in America. However, almost every other provider behind Verizon was either working on an LTE network, or building upon its current 4G network. However, Sprint, America’s third most popular wireless provier, was not working on an LTE network to our knowledge at the time of the article’s publication. Instead, Sprint had decided to lengthen their WiMAX deal with Clearwire. As soon as you think that Sprint is going to stay with WiMAX forever, their CFO begins to tell the public otherwise.

Sprint CFO Joe Euteneuer [...]

Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G breaks records, gets reviewed by us

by: Michael OrylJune 7, 2010

HTC EVO 4G for Sprint

Sprint said this morning that it’s opening day sales of the the HTC EVO 4G broke the previous records set by the Palm Pre and Samsung Instinct.  The carrier also said that the 3 day sales total for the EVO were triple those put forth by the Instinct and Pre.  So it seems that in spite of the lack of WiMAX coverage in most of the country, people just can’t resist that massive 4.3-inch touchscreen display.


Our Todd Haselton did a full review on the EVO 4G and I posted it on yesterday afternoon. Not unexpectedly, he liked the device quite a bit, but was put off by the lack of 4G [...]
