What better way for Sprint customers in five cities to start the new week than with 4G LTE coverage freshly turned on
by the carrier. The new cities include Lawrence, Kan.; Topeka, Kan.; Wichita, Kan.; Waukegan-Lake County, Ill.; and Barnstable-Hyannis/Mid-Cape, Mass. This brings Sprint's current LTE signal into 24 cities with 100 more coming in the months ahead. The nation's third largest carrier has a way to go to reach the current leader, Verizon, which has nearly 400 cities receiving its LTE signal.
Besides the new LTE coverage, Sprint reports that its customers in New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles should be noticing an improvement in its 3G signal as its Network Vision improvements roll out to those major cities. Network Vision brings improved call quality, faster 3G speeds with expanded coverage, and improved reliability which should mean fewer dropped calls. Also, Sprint customers in Baltimore, Boston and Washington D.C. should also be noticing the better quality enhanced 3G service available in those regions.
"In addition to the 19 cities we have already launched, we recently announced that Sprint 4G LTE will be available in more than 100 cities in the coming months. Today’s news moves us even further toward achieving that goal. We strive to deliver a top-notch network experience combined with winning devices and unlimited nationwide data plans – all of which are designed to support the ways our customers use their mobile devices today and tomorrow."-Bob Azzi, senior vice president-Network, Sprint
