Sprint offers new coverage map

Sprint offers new coverage map
Sprint will soon be offering two different kinds of 4G service, WiMax and LTE. While it is winding down the former and soon introducing the latter, you can now see the coverage map for each of Sprint's 4G enabled smartphones with the carrier's new coverage map. Select your choice of WiMax or LTE connectivity and you can see the countrywide coverage that Sprint offers for both. Using the slider on the left of the map, you can zoom in on the map to see where Sprint's 4G coverage is in your local area.

There is one drawback. Sprint right now isn't offering any LTE service, although we recently told you that the carrier's LTE signal in Atlanta, currently under construction, proved to be the second fastest amongst the four major U.S. operators in a test conducted by a Consumer Reports division. For those who have absolutely no interest in 4G, the map will also show 3G coverage and will even display where Nextel Direct Connect can be used. For Sprint customers who have relied so long on WiMax for 4G service, these are heady times indeed with LTE on the way and some hot new phones available.
