Sprint premieres LTE service in Kansas City

Sprint premieres LTE service in Kansas City
The nation's third largest carrier, Sprint, had been planning on firing up its new LTE service this Sunday. Kansas City, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston and Atlanta are the cities involved in the kick off of what the carrier is calling its Network Vision. Sprint hopes to have the country covered from coast to coast by 2014 with its LTE service. And while the carrier's LTE pipeline isn't officially supposed to be running until Sunday, it just so happens that the Kansas City market is already up. Being the location of the carrier's HQ might have something to do with that.

Actually, Sprint customers can try out their HTC EVO 4G in surrounding areas like St. Joseph, MO and Manhattan, KS. Each week, more areas are expected to come online until a market is fully covered, according to S4GRU. The site also says that the remaining four markets could have their LTE switch turned on at any time.

So far, Sprint has three phones with LTE connectivity, the Samsung Galaxy S III, the Samsung GALAXY Nexus and the HTC EVO 4G LTE.
