Sprint, one of the three largest carriers in the United States to carry Apple’s iPhone, and the last of the three to continue offering unlimited data plans for new customers, has announced today that they have brought 4G LTE to 11 more cities across the United States.
The announcement shares that the following cities are now covered by Sprint's 4G LTE network:
- Anderson, Ind.
- Clarke County, Va./Jefferson County, W.Va.
- Harrisburg/Carlisle/Hershey, Pa.
- Hagerstown, Md./Martinsburg, W.Va.
- Harrisonburg, Va.
- Muncie, Ind.
- Peabody, Mass.
- Salina, Kan.
- Shenandoah County, Va.
- South Bend/Mishawaka, Ind.
- Winchester, Va.
The press release also reveals that Sprint is making an effort to increase the signal strength of their 3G network to make it more accessible from within buildings and help avoid dropped calls.
Sprint continues to roll out their 4G LTE network, although not the fastest, all across the United States. Sprint has also announced that users who find LTE coverage in their area before it is officially announced are more than welcome to begin using it to connect to the Internet early. Sprint hopes to have 125 different cities under their 4G LTE coverage in coming months.
If you’ve been considering an iPhone with Sprint to take advantage of the unlimited data, it may be tough choice. You’d be settling with slower speeds for unlimited data, however with AT&T and Verizon, users experience speeds multiple times faster than those on Sprint at the downfall of being capped with the amount of data they can use each month.
If Sprint has opened 4G LTE in your area and you want to get an iPhone 5 with them, you could take advantage of the waning shipping times for the iPhone 5 on Apple’s Web site. Consumers have revealed that walking into a Sprint store might be a better choice, however, due to the stores usually having them in stock with no waiting times.
