Sprint was the first carrier in the United States to offer 4G broadband speeds through its WiMAX service in 2008, although it has trailed behind Verizon Wireless and AT&T substantially at rolling out its 4G LTE network across the nation. Fortunately, Sprint has announced that it has expanded its 4G LTE coverage to four new cities today, while bringing its all-new 3G coverage to additional markets. Find out exactly where just ahead.
Sprint today introduced its 4G LTE high-speed data network to customers in Baltimore, Md., Gainesville, Ga., Manhattan/Junction City, Kan., and Sedalia, Mo. Additionally, Sprint customers in Baltimore, Boston and Washington, D.C., are beginning to enjoy the benefits of Sprint’s all-new 3G service – which is expected to deliver an exceptionally clear signal, better in-building coverage and fewer dropped/blocked calls.
Apple is expected to launch its next-generation iPhone in just a few weeks and the handset is expected to have LTE compatibility, so Sprint could not be expanding their network at a better time. In fact, in the coming months, Sprint has promised that it will expand its 4G LTE network even further. In all likelihood, Sprint will eventually carry both an iPhone and iPad with LTE should it off broad enough 4G LTE coverage.
