    I live on the very OUTSKIRT of 4G coverage (Looked on the map @sprint, went OhBoy! Bought the phone, went WTF? Zoomed in, and it drops at the edge of my street...)
    I have it at work though, and it is nice. Here are my unofficial speed tests using Ookla SpeedTest (speeds in kbps and averaged over a few days of testing:
    WiFi @ Home Blazes.... 11496 down, 4320 up
    4G @ Work - Smokin ... 5300 down, 1123 up
    3G (home and work) - Smolders -- 450 down, 164 up.
    Unfortunately, I did not think to write down the signal DB strenths or I would have averaged them out as well.
    I like 4G @ work, but I most definately switch to WiFi when at home. 4G Signal is good until I pull onto my block (even holds good on the train ride home) ; and overall I am impressed. Even a few of the non-fanboys at work who have iPhones were impressed with the phone, for speed, pic quality, and overall Android goodness.

    I'm like 100 feet outside of 4G. It works at the end of my driveway but doesn't work inside my house. I don't really care though because I have wifi. Also, my 3G speed is plenty fast so I don't ever use 4G even when its available aside from showing it off to my friends.
