In addition to the faster speeds that Sprint customers using 4G LTE see, Sprint's Network Vision build out improves 3G signals in certain areas, giving users better wireless signal strength, improved in-building penetration and fewer dropped calls. Sprint customers in cities like Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, L.A., New York and Washington, D.C should already see these improvements. Even those customers of Sprint's prepaid carriers like Assurance Wireless, Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile, should notice improvements in 3G call quality including improved coverage, network reliability and voice quality.

Verizon currently leads the way in LTE coverage in the U.S. with over 400 markets served, followed by AT&T and then Sprint. For a complete list of all markets currently covered by Sprint's LTE signal, click on the link.
