Sprint LTE coming to 28 more small markets as the company rushes to catch AT&T, Verizon

Sprint adds 28 more cities scheduled for 4G in the coming months

Sprint users who have access to LTE phones often don't have access to any LTE coverage. I, for one, was one of those left out in the dark ages by Sprint, even though I have the latest LTE iPhone 5. While in Vegas for CES 2013, I was amazed that LTE hadn't hit that market yet, as CES would seem to be a perfect time to light it up.




However, Sprint is far behind AT&T and Verizon in terms of LTE coverage, so they are rapidly moving to implement LTE across the country and have pledged to cover their entire 3G footprint with LTE by the end of the year. 28 more cities have been added to the list of cities getting 4G in the coming months.


These markets include: Paris, Texas; Decatur, Ala.; Winona, Minn.; Homosassa Springs, Fla.; and Glasgow, Ky. While one would expect Sprint to cover the major cities and markets first, in no way is this bad news. This is progress, though they need to make it at a much quicker rate to keep their pledge.
