I'm living in a rural area ten minutes outside the city and village, currently I have no other options than poor 3G, satellite internet or dial-up. I like to game online and I find my current 3G service to be inadequate for an enjoyable experience while playing Team Fortress 2, I experience high ping, ping spikes and severe lag while trying to play with a 3G connection. I found out that the Sprint tower close to me is apparently being upgraded to 4G/LTE, consulting coverage maps also shows that Verizon towers already offer LTE service around me but a person I know had his 4G/LTE phone with him and could only pick up a 3G signal with poor reception so I don't know. I am looking for 4G/LTE devices for a reasonable price that aren't propriety and locked to a singular network. So no Verizon, AT&T and Sprint only devices, they must be able to be activated on all the major networks.
