I wish they'd do these tests in more challenging markets - like out here in the sticks.
I can almost physically see three cell towers and I get decent service with a booster. With their high gain antennas I'd probably be fine.
Most of this area does not get DSL at all. Those of us that do are limited to 3Mb or less. This would be a great testbed for a WISP.

Dish Network Teams With Sprint In Wireless Broadband TestLooks like the companies have buried the hatchet after Dish Network’s failed challenge this year to bids by Japan’s SoftBank for Sprint Nextel and Clearwire. Dish and Sprint said today that they will jointly test a fixed wireless broadband service in Corpus Christi, Texas that they expect to make available in mid-2014 “with a plan to expand into additional markets in the future.” Dish will offer customers an outdoor router or “an indoor solution” with high-gain antennas that can access the Internet via the 4G TDD-LTE signal on Sprint’s 2.5 GHz spectrum.
I had Sprint fixed Internet in the 90's. They put an antenna on my roof and it was cool. It didn't last long though.
