Sprint is ticking me off. I apparently get no 4G reception of any kind in Denver. That means I can occasionally have to mess with my phone for ten minutes to get a Facebook update. Goodreads repeatedly fails to connect. I even have problems getting email to download. This sucks.
I guess Denver apparently has no 4G LTE coverage. At least, not at my home near downtown, my office downtown, or anywhere else I go.
Of course, I do pay a 4G surcharge because I have a 4G phone. Honestly, with poor data coverage like this, there is almost no reason to have a smart phone.
Supposedly, Denver got Sprint 4G coverage a long time ago. I think it was one of the other 4G standards other than LTE and I guess it went away. All I see now is 3G on my phone, though even when I used to see 4G come up on other phones I had it didn’t stay around long either home, at work, or much of anywhere else.
Worse, I appear to get 4G LTE coverage sometimes when I visit Omaha. Even Lincoln, Nebraska. Spring apparently has 4G LTE coverage there that is better than Denver.
I don’t know if other networks like Verizon are better, but I keep imagining that they are. I’ve been with sprint for over ten years now, but the data coverage better be improved by the time my contract is up next time. It’s gotten bad enough that I’m honestly considering switching. I don’t even stream video on my phone most times. I just want to be able to use Facebook, Goodreads, and Email. Pretty basic for a smartphone.
