Two days ago Sprint introduced a new videos series to help you understand exactly what's involved with the setup of 4G wireless. The first installment of the Youtube series begins with Michael Galluccio & Lyrad Tarazi on the rooftops in NYC. In the short detailed video Tarazi explains the positioning of the newly installed antennas and the new look of the cell equipment. Sprint says the next videos will show how the speeds are supposed to penetrate more common areas such as tunnels, bridges, and transportation hubs. Sprint also says that the series will show the difficulty of wiring subways, how signals reach the top floors of the tallest buildings, and how the signals can reach hills, and mountains (which is something I can’t wait for.).

So if your currently an Evo 4G or Epic 4G owner or thinking about picking one up, then you'll definitely want to keep an eye out for the next videos. I would love to see Sprint do this for new devices as well, because this is a nice way of showing your customers you care.
