Sprint 4G LTE goes live in Boston ahead of schedule
As captain Jack Sparrow said in that movie we all know – that's interesting. Apparently, at least one lucky Sprint subscriber in Boston, MA is now enjoying speedy LTE service on his smartphone. He noticed that his HTC EVO 4G LTE was connected to the Sprint LTE network after an MSID update, and provided us with a couple of screenshots to prove his claims. Data speeds are hovering around 6Mbps on the downlink and 8Mbps on the uplink, judging by the measurements conducted using Ookla's SpeedTest app.
Sprint LTE was discovered to be operational in some spots within the San Francisco Bay Area. However, since that turned out to be nothing but a network test and not an actual early rollout, we can assume that Sprint's LTE network is undergoing testing in Boston as well. According to the most up-to-date official data, Sprint has 4G LTE coverage in 15 markets across Texas and Georgia.
Nevertheless, if you notice that your Sprint LTE-enabled smartphone is picking up the 4G goodness as well, do not hesitate to spread the word. You can drop a line for us down in the comments, or better yet, send us a news tip!
