Sprint 4G LTE Coming to 20 More Cities in the Coming Months

Continuing on the 4G LTE warpath, Sprint is looking to flip the switch in 20+ major cities over the next few months. Cities such as San Francisco, Warsaw, and even down to Kokomo (“we’ll get there fast and then we’ll take it slow”) will be seeing Sprint’s enhanced network speeds. We’ll list out the cities expected to see the change down below.

4G LTE is underway at these following cities:

  • San Francisco-San Mateo-Redwood City, CA
  • Cape Coral-Ft Meyers, FL
  • Dyersburg-Union City-Martin, TN
  • Emporia, KS
  • Fort Wayne, IN
  • Greenwood, MS
  • Joplin, MO
  • Kokomo, IN
  • Lafayette/West Lafayette, IN
  • Lexington Park, MD
  • Marion, IN
  • Napa, CA
  • Naples-Marco Island, FL
  • Ottawa-Streator, IL

    there are a lot of places that sprint is rolling out LTE thats not listed that sprint is testing. like is SF there have been spots with LTE off and on for the last 4 months.

    WTF other than San Fran most of those cities suck! Indiana…. theres not an important city in that state!!!

  • Droid4LifeDawg

    I’m on Verizon, but it’s a Shame once again NY is not included, that means any 4G LTE phone you buy from Sprint will be STUCK ON 3G, and the sad part is they don’t even tell the customers, so you run in there and get that Samsung Galaxy S III on an Unlimited plan, just remember thats UNLIMITED 3G…

    • dsass600

      Long Island is supposed to get LTE next month.

    It looks like Sprint is going on reverse population order than most of us would expect. I guess their LTE network can’t handle people actually using it yet. This way they can advertise “LTE in xx cities,” and still not have to build much of an LTE infrastructure.

  • sagisarius

    This seems to be largely a list of suburbs (or cities in the immediate proximity of other metro areas) they’re expanding coverage into, not totally new markets.

    [generic complaint about why my city(largest that I know of) has not yet gotten Sprint’s LTE]

    [generic statement where I assume cities are chosen based on population alone]

    When is El Paso Texas going to see some love?

  • col3rsc

    How is this not available in St. Charles, SC?

  • M C

    Is this already in the st pete / tampa area ? or is that coming after sarasota bradenton

  • Don’t worry about Indianapolis, Sprint. We’re doing just fine with no LTE.

  • King of Nynex

    Is this list a joke? I’ve never even heard of half of these places. Why not start with the major metropolitan areas?

    • Asuriyan

      “Last month, Sprint announced more than 100 cities where Sprint 4G LTE is on its way, including Boston; Charlotte, N.C.; Chicago; Indianapolis; Los Angeles; Memphis, Tenn.; Miami; Nashville, Tenn.; New Orleans; New York; Philadelphia; and Washington, D.C. The network build out has begun in these cities in addition to those announced In September. The LTE build out is part of Network Vision, an investment program that will also deliver an improved 3G experience to Sprint customers.”

      They roll out where there is resources and infrastructure to support it. Which may not be the “major metro” locations you are expecting at first. They will get there.

    • Droidzilla

      San Francisco is a bit off the beaten path.

  • pimfram

    Hello Sprint, have you heard of the Midwest?

    • SprintDefenderMand

      Im thinking they have since there headquarters is in Kansas!

      • michael arazan

        They have their HQ in Kansas City. And by their map they are branching out into missouri one large township at a time, guess st.Louis will be the last on the Missouri expansion, where i reside.
        Considering they announced they weren’t starting lte till 2013, it’s nice to see them start it in august, almost 6 months ahead of schedule.

  • Migamix

    meanwhile my wife is still being charged 10$ for LTE she’s has never used in New Orleans or south Mississippi. I call bullshyt on those charges

    • Asuriyan

      All smartphones carry that charge.

  • bkosh84

    YAY They aren’t coming to Cleveland! It’s not a big city or anything…

  • Still no Las Vegas, not interested.

  • Mathew Colburn

    All these Indiana cities but not fricken Indianapolis!? Wtf, Sprint!? You can and put it in Warsaw, and SB-Mishawaka but not the state capital. BS.

    • Asuriyan

      Indy was on an earlier list. They’re ~2 months ahead of these cities on site deployment.

  • Slowly but surely, my company sooooo NEEDS to switch over to Verizion, they have been 4G LTE here for quite sometime now….c’mon Sprint!

  • ddevito

    Warsaw, IN

    I spent a month there one night

    • JoshGroff

      Groundhog Day?

  • Kyle Cummings

    Fort Wayne, IN gets lte before Cincinnati? What a load of bull…

    • Hunter

      You assume roll out is based purely on a locations population….what a load of bull
