It's so rare that I even get 3G speeds anyway, and now spring is coming, with more foliage, which means even LESS coverage. I'd be thrilled to see EV work consistently. As it is, 1X shows up way too often.
Folks, remember that 4G is new. It's not ubiquitous and won't be for a while. AT&T's debacle with the iph*ne hogging their network is said to be a major reason why they are plopping down hotspots all over the place so I am using wifi whenever possible. For now at least, wifi also seems to draw a lot less battery power (another plus), and likely creates a lot less radiation.
The only thing 4G's currently really speeding up is sales. It will be a while still before the technology matures, and most people who check sites like these change out their equipment so fast it won't even matter by then, will it? Relax, it's all good. You're falling prey to marketing hype. Don't give in!
