No 4G wimax and definitely no 4G LTE. 3G speeds are abysmal, but that's because Sprint has very poor 3G speeds in the first place. Calls and texts usually work fine, though calls will drop occasionally. AT&T suffers from some dropped calls in the area, but the coverage is much better, especially in terms of data coverage and speed. 3G is very usable and there is LTE coverage. I have both providers (don't ask). I can't say anything about Verizon in this area, but AT&T is the clear choice going off what I know.

Got Sprint because I couldn't afford AT&T deposit. Before signing the contract I specifically asked about coverage in my home AND where I work, Gonzales county. They assured me home coverage would be good as I'm just a couple of miles from the tower in Alamo Heights. As for Gonzales county, they said I'm covered there too. Facts: Absolutely no data service in my home. I'm in a 3G area just two blocks from the 4G coverage that surrounds me but still, I have no data coverage. Phone reception, poor to none. Impossible to hold even a two minute conversation. Calls will not come in and outgoing calls drop within a minute. Any important call has to be made away from home. We do not answer important calls either. Sprint sent us a booster free after one rep tried to charge us $250 for it. We hung up and called right back. The next rep said no problem, we'll send that right out free of charge. It doesn't work. In Gonzales, I have minimal reception, park by the gate entrance-one bar, park by the big tree-one bar, turn right here and call drops. Or, no service at all. I use my phone for dispatch at work. At least, I'm supposed to. Instead I have to find another driver with a phone that can call in my status and receive my dispatch, typically, they all use att. Currently, my service is disconnected as I refused to pay 200 a month for no service. Bill is up to 723 now.

The signal is intermittent within my home. Okay in one location, move twenty (20) feet and there is "No network". Nearby three (3) story building just had cellular antennas installed on the roof.

when I was checking out Samsung phones I was told I had service according to my zip code. Well due to wal-mart add which said they had GALAXY S III I ran over to get one and OOPS THEIR BAD they didn't have any, so was talked into diferent one. IF I CAN GET 2 BARS I'M GETTING GREAT SERVICE LOL NOT! I HAVE BEEN ALL OVER THIS CITY IN AREAS ON THIS MAP AND ONLY GEY 3 BARS MAX! THIS IS NOT GOOD SERVICE. AND STATIC IS EVER PRESENT ON ALL CALLS. THEY CAN HEAR ME FINE I JUST CAN'T HEAR THEM. I GUESS I SAVED $450.00 since I WILL NOT PAY $600.00 for the GALAXY G III. I HAD BETTER SERVICE FROM SPRINT NOT MUCH BETTER AT LEAST NO STATIC THEY JUST DROPPED 99.9% of all calls because I was on a month to month contract at a low monthly amt / it seems that everyone who had what I had had same problem!

Quite a few disrupted calls. Either bad reception or plain out a drop call. Their system is always "busy" making me re-attempt my call several times. Looking for another provider.

There is no 4g lte coverage, and the 3g is pathetically slow. Thinking of returning the 4g lte and going back to my original phone which is 4g, straight up. What a disappointment and really, outright fraud by Sprint.

Sprint says I'm in the heart of their coverage zone. But for my phone and my wifes low end Samsung phone, we get no reception at our house. I can walk down the stree about 200 yards and I get full 3 and 4g service. Even sadder is that I have Clear as my Internet provider, and it works on a 4g signal (Clear is owned by Sprint) and I get a full 4g signal in the center of my house with no outside walls. My friends with Crickett and Verizon have no issues at my house or any part of my house.

I get dropped calls around the following locations 1. My house near Colby Glass Elementary 2. Near the University of the Incarnate Word 3. Near the University of Texas at San Antonio 4. In Castle Hills 5. Near the Alamodome I get several dropped calls every day, at least 3 per 30 minute conversation. Terrible. It's been like this for a couple of years now. So I'm switching when the contract is up. I don't know why I renewed it.

Zip code would be misleading as you would think we are at Canyon Lake instead of two miles from Garden Ridge. We are shadowed by a large hill which shields us from the Lucent tower near IH 35. 1 to three bars in the house. Can get better outside. There is hope for a better signal from either of two towers not in this database as of this review: 1) in Garden Ridge on FM 3009 near Schoenthal Rd.and on FM 1863 a quarter mile towards New Braunfels from the Schoenthal Rd.intersection. The question would be whose signals come from these two as neither has signage.
