Sprint Ramps Up LTE Deployment as 2012 Winds Down

In recent weeks, MMW has covered in great detail the expansion of AT&T and Verizon’s 4G LTE networks as they begin to comprehensively cover the United States from east to west.

But the nation’s third largest carrier isn’t looking to get lost in the flurry of LTE developments being touted by its competitors.

On Monday, Sprint announced that it has flipped the switch on 4G LTE for 11 more cities across the United States. These markets include:

  • Anderson, Ind.
  • Clarke County, Va./Jefferson County, W.Va.
  • Harrisburg/Carlisle/Hershey, Pa.
  • Hagerstown, Md./Martinsburg, W.Va.
  • Harrisonburg, Va.
  • Muncie, Ind.
  • Peabody, Mass.
  • Salina, Kan.
  • Shenandoah County, Va.
  • South Bend/Mishawaka, Ind.
  • Winchester, Va.

“We are pleased to deliver our new 4G LTE network to more Sprint customers. Whether someone uses 4G LTE for personal or professional needs, they will find that Sprint’s new 4G LTE network is performing extremely well. Customers should find it consistent, reliable and fast,” says Bob Azzi, senior vice president at Sprint.

According to today’s announcement, Sprint is also trying to increase the signal strength of its 3G network.
