Good news for Sprint users with LTE-enabled devices today. The carrier announced this morning that it has flipped out the 4G tech for a handful of major new markets including San Diego and St. Louis, and several smaller ones.

Today’s rollout pushes Sprint’s LTE network into over 300 US cities, covering close to 200 million people—a significant milestone for the company, although it’s still well behind its much larger competitors Verizon and AT&T…

Here are a few of the 70 markets Sprint added today to its LTE network:

  • Muskegon, Michigan
  • Norton Shores, Michigan
  • Starkville, Mississippi
  • San Diego, California
  • St. Louis, Missouri

Sprint has been making some serious moves in the wireless space in recent months. In October, it announced its next-gen ‘Spark’ network, which is capable of up to 1GB download speeds. And it’s already rolled it out to a handful of markets.

The carrier is also reportedly considering purchasing T-Mobile USA. Last Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Sprint is currently looking into regulatory concerns right now, and a bid in upwards of $20 billion could come in early 2014.

  • misterz

    It’s sucks until the unlimited data comes through.. I use about 5 gig a day downloading movies right through my phone while on the go:) not to mention using my hotspot for all the tablets for the kids while in the car 😉

      Yeah if you read the fine print all those unlimited plans has a limit during a 30 day period. For T-mobile it’s about 10GB a month from what I remember seeing.

    Sprint LTE Sucks, much slower than T-mobile 3g

    • Mike Colacone Saal

      oh I wouldn’t say all that… Ill agree that Spring 3g is HORRIFIC… but their LTE wasn’t too bad in Tampa when I was living out there. I pulled anywhere from 15-25Mbps. Which was so much better than the 1Mbps 3g I would get… either way left for the Uncarrier!

      I don’t mind Sprint’s 3G coverage. It’s fast for me, even near the border of Vermont where I work. I just hope Sprint can and will purchase T-Mobile so I can have more coverage.

  • Sprint LTE is live in my city as well. Woot Woot!!!!

  • appl3h4ck3r

    Hey Sprint, get some more LTE coverage here in Manchester and Goffstown and New Boston!!
