While both AT&T and Verizon are busy battle over network supremacy, Sprint is working on just keeping up. The folks over at PC Magazine report that the third-largest wireless carrier, Sprint revealed that it has begun work on its 4G LTE network in nine new cities. The new expanded markets include the following:
- Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minn.
- Oakland/Fremont/Hayward, Calif.
- Key West, Fla.
- Fort Smith, Ark.
- Michigan City/La Porte, Ind.
- Bloomington, Ind.
- Eau Claire, Wis.
- Arrdmore, Okla.
- McAllen/Edinburg/Mission, Texas
The third largest wireless carrier debuted its 4G LTE service in July and plans to have 125 cities on its LTE grid within “the coming months.” As of right now, no more specific dates are being offered by the company. The number is clearly well behind AT&T and Verizon with the latter promising to have its entire 3G network converted by mid-2013. Sprint won’t be able to keep up for sure but it’s trying its best to keep expanding and keep customers content.
Do any of you Sprint users in expanded markets notice improvements in network speeds?
