I'm in the Phoenix area and LTE is extremely spotty. I didn't even start seeing LTE service until a couple months ago but the service is not up to par. My signal constantly degrades and I don't get LTE at my house which is crazy since I live in one of the fastest growing cities in the country which is also a suburb of Phoenix. I'm still using an EVO LTE and will give Sprint until the G3 launches to improve their network in my area, otherwise I'll have to switch to Tmobile. I have a 25% off discount with Sprint and love the unlimited data but their network is by far the poorest in my area.
Off topic I'm waiting for the G3 as the M8 just doesn't do it for me which is a shame since I've been using HTC phones for 4 years now. I'm sure it's a good phone but it doesn't wow me like I want. G3 may do that and I recently purchased a 60 inch LG LED and love it and have heard great things about the G2.
