But I digress. They are working in the LA area, no? They haven't completely ignored the area, yes?
It could be worse, right? Ish happens.
That's life, it's not as big of a deal as you make it to be. Just saying.
Here's my area I for one am happy seeing as I'm in a second round market.

Except I'm not predicting anything, really. Just trying to make a point.
By publishing a projected launch date, Sprint is telling people the service is "expected" to be available about then. If they miss by a month or two, no big deal.
If they miss by 6 months, that to me is a big deal. How many have signed up with Sprint based on the representation that LTE would be available soon? Um, I did. I could have switched to V or A when my contract was up, but Sprint represented their LTE would be available in my area shortly.
I purchased a new phone believing it would be able to use this new network, based on Sprint naming the phone HTC EVO "LTE". That was last June.
Even on those rare occasions when LTE shows up at the top of my screen, any data app I use reports, "No network connection". "Please try later".
Since Sprint doesn't pro-rate their ETF until 6 months into a contract, I'm stuck. My ranting is based on their hollow promises (I say promise because they're voluntarily publishing a schedule, nobody is forcing them).
I was attempting to be humorous but apparently failing. guess it's time to stop.
Btw, no, having a percentage isn't better than nothing if the results are the same.
And yeah, it could be worse. I could have been born with no arms. But this thread is about Sprint's LTE availability, or lack thereof.
