Sprint now covers over 30 markets with LTE service, new cities added today
Sprint also expanded their network to cover Wichita Falls, Texas, which is a couple hours outside of Dallas. 4G LTE was also turned on in Hutchinson and McPherson, Kansas, two towns in the center of the state and several hours from Kansas City.
Finally, New Bedford and Fall River, Massachusetts, neighboring towns which lie well south of Boston, also had the switch flipped to provide high-speed service. Sprint has set an aggressive goal to have over 100 cities up and running with their new LTE service in the coming months. While no definitive time-line was given, at the rate the carrier is moving, they will likely reach that goal in the early part of 2013.

Major cities on the west coast could use some love before more of these small towns in the middle of bumf**k nowhere get service... Wouldn't that be more competitive with VZW & AT&T?

@ojdidit84 Well said my friend. A buddy of mine works security and he was out near LAX last week and got a taste of 4G. It's coming, just hella slow. Keep checking for testing in your area.

It would be interesting to know what factors are dictating the sequence of the rollout.

If you go on to Sprint.com and under LTE discussion, it list the cities that are current getting the LTE. And all I can say is that more than 1/2 half of those cities are unheard of. So does that mean they have more subscribers there than other major cities.
Like most companies, they got their a@@ backwards. Always looking to cater new subscribers instead pleasing the existing ones to keep them!
