Sprint adds 22 new cities to its LTE roster
The nation's third largest mobile carrier, Sprint, has expanded the size of its LTE service by adding coverage to 22 new U.S. cities including some major vacation destinations such as Miami, Tampa and Fond du Lac, Wis. Well, maybe the latter isn't exactly a major tourist destination, but it does now offer 4G LTE service for Sprint customers in the region.

The complete list of cities that now are covered in Sprint's LTE signal include Baton Rouge, La.; Centralia, Wash.; Clarksville, Tenn.; Corsicana, Texas; Dalton, Ga.; Dunn, N.C.; Fond du Lac, Wis.; Gainesville, Fla.; Henderson, N.C.; Kingsport, Tenn.; Lansing/East Lansing, Mich.; Longview, Wash.; Miami, Fla.; Napa, Calif.; New Orleans, La.; Palatka, Fla.; Raleigh, N.C.; Sebring, Fla.; St. Cloud, Minn.; St. Joseph/Benton Harbor, Mich.; Tampa, Fla. and Warsaw, Ind.

Including the new locations, Sprint now offers LTE service in 110 markets in the U.S. and is on pace to cover 200 million POPs by the end of the year. And some customers are receiving LTE signals in markets yet to be officially announced such as New York, San Francisco and Washington D.C.

Sprint stockholders are voting June 25th on the offer by Japan's SoftBank to purchase 78% of the mobile operator for $21.6 billion.
