Last week, the UK began a probe of Apple in connection with Apple’s advertising campaign that promised iPad 4 users 4G speeds.  Apparently, 4G is not even available in the UK.

Around the same time, Sprint revealed that there is only a single U.S. town, Kankakee, Illinois, that receives 4G Speed signals.  Sprint said it will offer 4G LTE service by June in Kansas City, Baltimore, Dallas, Atlanta, and Houston.

Sprint’s admission begs the question: why would anybody pay more to buy 4G phones if 4G service from Sprint isn’t actually available?
