Sprint Enables 4G LTE in San Francisco, New York City, Washington, D.C., Some FL Cities
Sprint told The Verge Monday morning, however they haven’t announced it officially on their Newsroom Web page yet, that the wireless carrier has today turned on 4G LTE in parts of San Francisco, New York City, Washington, D.C., and some Florida cities including Tampa, Jacksonville, and Miami. Sprint announced in September of last year that this would happen, however they hadn't gotten to it until now.
According to the carrier, the information has not been posted on the Newsroom yet because the roll-out is a little bit patchy at first and Sprint network users may or may not see reception in some areas of these cities during the initial launch. Sprint hopes to lay down the coverage a little bit thicker in these areas in the future:

Sprint, unfortunately, has a record of being much slower than that, which is disappointing considering that Sprint offers unlimited data.

I finally have LTE in Long Island New York. But I am on the AT&T network though.

I've started to get LTE in the outskirts of the RDU/RTP area but nothing in the city yet. Hope they're just testing the network and will finally bring it here soon.

Reason they are able to expand now then before is cause of SoftBank investing in sprint and giving sprint a chance at getting back up and able to get in the competition just right. They're getting there but making baby steps as they progress. I really enjoy Sprints LTE network here in Houston,Tx.
