More Cities to Be Lit Up With AT&T and Sprint’s 4G LTE

Today, Sprint and AT&T announced that customers in the below-listed areas will see 4G LTE turned on, if not by now, then sometime very soon. More specifically, Sprint says that the four markets listed should have their 4G LTE fired up before Labor Day (9/3). As for the AT&T markets, users in those areas who have 4G LTE capable devices should already see the boost in speeds and do note, some of these are expansions to already existing markets.

Sprint:

  • Baltimore, MD
  • Gainesville, GA
  • Manhattan/Junction City, KS
  • Sherman-Denison, TX

AT&T:

  • Miami
  • Fort Lauderdale
  • Worcester
  • Boston-area
  • West Palm Beach
  • Baltimore (Expansion)
  • Great Washington D.C. Areas (Expansion)

You have got to love that 4G LTE.

    Sprint really kinda sucks. I got frustrated when I saw the 4 cities where they’ll be launching LTE. Until I remembered that it probably wouldn’t matter if the had listed Detroit anyway. Supposedly we have 4G here, but I can almost never connect to it. It’ll flicker on for a few seconds, then right back to good ole 3G. Ridiculous. Glad I have to pay extra for a service I’m never able to use. Here’s an idea, why don’t you perfect what you’re already charging your customers for?

    If AT&T has less issues with their LTE integration then I may switch. Verizon’s LTE still has issues. It has gotten worse in the last month or so.

    It amazes me Sprint skipped us in Phoenix over for 4G WiMax, and now they are doing the same for LTE…for crying out loud we are the 6th largest city in the US…

      Kansas City is their head quarters. Guessing st.louis will be next which is nice in case I have to leave verizon if they take away my Gfathered unlimited data at some point.

    Is it only me that wishes we’d stop calling LTE, 4G?

      no… but these telecom company tardos are going to advertise it however they want. maybe someday their infrastructure will support it… since it is long term EVOLUTION… but then again, probably not.

      Can’t believe there’s still people complaining about the “4G” name thing. Just give it up or are you going to complain about every term used in marketing?

    Pretty slick AD placement there Droid LIfe lol . . . I honestly didn’t notice it right away. As for Sprint they are definitely rolling out faster than I thought…. But until they have Boston and NY as Blanketed as VZW LTE I won’t budge

      What AD? I use adblocker so I see the site, not useless ads :P

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Nah man gotta support the site.

        • Chimera

          I feel bad, because I used to let ads through, but then DL added that ad bar across the bottom which was really distracting to me so I started blocking…. maybe I’ll unblock click a few and then block again.
