    I'm glad Statesboro got it a week ago. We needed it BADLY. 25,000 kids on campus and the 3G was mindnumbingly slow. On campus I'd pull about 0.1 download speed when I wasn't being optimized. The 4G is very much welcomed and I'm pulling 35-40 down now.

    They mispelled Greeley Colorado. :p

    But good to know 4G is finally going live in Cheyenne and Greeley. Been a pain in the ass pulling crap data when visiting those nearby areas. Good stuff, for sure!

    Also Lincoln Nebraska is listed twice in the "expanded networks". 4G there has to be off the hook!

    They either forgot to add Jackson, MI to that list, or they're just testing it out here. I've been on 4G for 2 days now. Didn't have it before.
