    I live in the lawton Oklahoma area they have not activated it here nor have i seen an announcement for it but the store is telling me they recently had a conference call about it and it would be active some time in the 3rd quarter of this year,but the over the phone reps have told me it will start to come on around the 27th of this month and my local best buy mobile has said the same so i hope to start seeing it next week but i'm not holding my breath

    Glad to see my area (Youngstown-Warren) is on the list, although I will die laughing it Tmo switches on LTE first.

    Was happy to finally see LTE deployed in Vallejo and American canyon a couple weeks ago.

    If my area gets LTE before Tmo, I'll seriously consider going back to to ATT and go prepaid.

    Only 3 towers have it. The coverage is super spotty. I called at&t and they told me that LTE is not officially launching until the Fall, but they upgraded some of the towers early when they were doing maintenance on them.

    Yup I Know its driving me nuts, how far is "Denver" considered do you know? I'm not getting any LTE on C-470 going West or East, is this still considered Denver? I mean there are cities near by but Denver is still pretty close.

    It depends on what part of C-470 you are on.
    Two blocks west of where I live, I can get 40 Mbps downloads on my iPad. I go home which is two blocks east of where I get 40Mbps downloads and LTE is gone.

    There are two areas in my house where I can pick up a weak LTE signal to get anywhere from 1-10Mbps down, but that occurs only at night. Once daylight gets here, its back to crappy 4G/edge speeds.

    4G by no means should be crappy at least not for me. As for which part I was thinking about the C-470 part that goes west towards Golden. Since Golden is fairly close t Denver I was thinking maybe they would have it covered. I don't use my HTC much in the car and when I do I see the 4G never seen LTE; unless I'm in Denver area (Cherry Creek area).

    Oh, I have news, 4G here is crappy. Check out this speed test I just did on my iPad. Remember, it's daylight now so this is the best I can get. I don't have an iPhone 5 so my iPad is the only LTE capable device I have.

    Some people might not know if they always have LTE off but I just found out recently that they launched LTE in Pensacola in November.

    Be patient folks, you don't want it to be a terrible launch the way 3g was years back. Its been pretty much a success wherever it has been rolled out
