Owners of the HTC EVO 4G LTE or the Samsung Galaxy Nexus can now enjoy 4G LTE speeds in Kansas City – this makes sense, since this is where Sprint’s headquarters are located. Might as well let the head honchos be some of the first to get some LTE action.
Previously, even though LTE was deployed in the area, Sprint was blocking handsets from connecting to the LTE network. There are several speculations as to why: some say that additional network testing was needed, while others blamed a little-known bug in the EVO 4G LTE’s radio. Most likely, it’s a combination of both, as the latest OTA update for the EVO included a new radio that very well might fix whatever LTE bug was present in the previous version.
If you’re in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, or San Antonio, Sprint has already announced that LTE will go live on July 15. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if you get it a bit early, as well.
If you’re in Kansas City or the surrounding area, be sure to let us know if LTE is live for you. Heck, you can even give us some speed test results, if you want.[S4GRU]
