Sprint to cover 28 new cities with 4G LTE in the coming months

If you’ve been a bit disappointed by Sprint’s LTE rollout, you might be in a for a nice surprise in the next few months. Sprint has released a mini roadmap for some LTE deployment in the coming months, listing 28 cities within its 3G footprint. Sprint is claiming this upgrade is part of their Network Vision strategy, so even 3G users should see some faster speed and enhanced voice quality. They even hint that 4G phones might pick up sporadic LTE a little early, and you’re welcome to use it before it’s officially available. (hint, hint) These 28 new cities are in addition to the 200 4G cities already announced by Sprint, so by the looks of it, 2013 is going to be a pretty busy year for LTE. Hit the break to see if your city is covered and check out the press release.

    Sprint is not even supporting its home city, Kansas City. After all these years of support I’ll be leaving them when my contract is up.
