Sprint is slowly expanding its LTE footprint by adding the 4G service to four more locations. The new LTE locations are Baltimore, MD; Gainesville, Ga; Manhattan/Junction City, Kan and Sedalia, Mo. This brings the number of citiescovered by Sprint's LTE signal to 19
. In addition, those living in Baltimore, Boston, Mass.; and Washington D.C. should notice better quality on their 3G calls as the carrier has started offering its enhanced 3G signal in those cities. The improved 3G service will bring higher quality calls, fewer dropped calls and better in-building performance.
The nation's third largest carrier will continue to forge ahead with its LTE build out and Sherman-Dennison, Texas will soon be blanketed by Sprint's 4G signal. Sprint hopes to finish its LTE network and the revamped 3G network by the end of next year. According to Sprint's own graph, those using LTE should see download speeds of 6 to 8Mbps with a peak of 25Mbps. Upload speeds should reach 2 to 3Mbps.
