Ditch Sprint? or hope 4g will be here soon and solve my speed issues?

I assumed many connectivity issues were problems due to the phone. When I still had problems after getting the SIII I quickly found out based on some simple speed tests that it was in fact
Sprints network that was slow. I've also had no signal in many areas that clearly showed there was coverage. Sprint continues to promise 4g coverage; but not
yet in my area. Sprint employees have told me 4g will solve all my access woes (slow speeds and lack of coverage) and encourage me to wait it out, however of course I am skeptical.
Should I keep the 2 year contract and hope Sprint pulls through with 4g service or find a new provider? (Important to note; Sprint is significantly cheaper than other providers in my area, but that does me little good if it isn't fast enough to use)"
