Sprint Celebrates the Holidays by Adding 6 New 4G LTE Markets

This morning, Sprint announced the activation of six new 4G LTE markets. Their total now stands at 49, 400 less than Verizon. It’s a slow rollout so far, but Sprint is expected to spend a pretty penny getting their LTE network up to snuff and onto a competitive level.

  • Indianapolis/Carmel, Ind.
  • Santa Rosa/Petaluma, Calif.
  • Vallejo/Fairfield, Calif.
  • Southern Puerto Rico (including Ponce, Coamo and Guayama)
  • York/Hanover, Pa.
  • Franklin County, Pa.
  • Sprint also enhanced 4G LTE coverage around Shenandoah County, Va., and introduced 4G LTE to the neighboring Page County, Va.

    I bet all you just cheer Sprint because they have Unlimited data, and you guys think you can’t live without it.

    Vallejo, CA!!! Finally ­čÖé

  • dotdotdot

    I love how sprint is lighting up Santa Rosa before Verizon does, re fukn diculous.

  • Br_d

    It’s official: I’ll be switching from Verizon to Sprint when my contract is up in 3 months.


    in nyc Sprint is the worst . left Sprint for T-Mobile much happier T-Mobile hspa faster then Sprint 3 g and LTE

  • a.youth.in.Asia

    How many MVNOs do you have sucking at the 3G teet?

  • rekem

    I can’t wait to get the hell off this joke of a carrier. At least if I end up getting a Nexus 4 without LTE, it’ll seem LTE fast to me. Anything is faster than Sprint’s crippled data speeds.

    • Diablo81588

      But… But… It’s unlimited!

    • Br_d

      But do you have LTE?

      • rekem

        No I’m not lucky enough to live in York, PA.

  • James Bond

    Oh Good San Diego is still not on the list.

  • Riz Virani

    Need more coverage in DFW area. <3

  • Yea, a little irritated here. I’m in Washington, DC… don’t they have bigger fish to fry? Franklin County, Pennsylvania… really?

    • KOBALT

      i always look at the oddball 4g cities that are lit up. spread the wealth, i say!

  • bigdickmike

    Damn girl what’s ya email let’s talk I wanna male you cum

  • MotoRulz

    Come on Sprint we are pulling for you. Sincerely all pissed off Verizon customers.

    • KOBALT

      I’ll get in on this. Sprint is my 2nd choice and hope. Tmobile is hit or miss at this point.

    • Yep, I left VZW for the unlimited Sprint data… however now we have to wait for 4G. Oh, and the Sprint monthly bill’s are like $20-30 bucks less.

      • a.youth.in.Asia

        Im sure you only use 2GB of data and would pay that extra money for those faster speeds

        • regkilla

          Nope. Fully unlimited full speed 4G LTE data.

          • bleeew

            I had unlimited data. Now I’m on a 6GB shared plan and only used 1GB(all my family combined), and we are 15 days into the cycle. When I was on unlimited data, I blasted 8GB a month.

          • regkilla

            When is your Verizon contract over?

    • michael arazan

      They have KC, branson, and the Ozarks and other small towns in MO, but not St.Louis MO, c’mon sprint. I may have to use you by the time my contract is up in a year.


    Every time I see articles like this, I keep thinking about the one where VZW says ‘while everyone is concentrating on 4G, we’ll be working on 5 & 6G’. To each their own, though. Different areas are different. VZW suits my area best.

    • T4rd

      Verizon will also be concentrating on how to rape your bank account more after they implement 5G and 6G. I hope by this time next year, Sprint will have a competitive 4G footprint so I will be ready to switch from Verizon to Sprint because I know Verizon isn’t going to let me keep my unlimited data when I upgrade.

      • KOBALT

        I’ll agree with that. I’m one of the people who believe, you get what you pay for. The price is def going up, but i’m almost ‘forced’ to pay it for their coverage in my area. I had ATT and paid to cancel early for the horrible coverage. I checked maps for all the other carriers and I’d be 3G/roaming at best. It’s sad because i’m only 20 minutes from Cleveland. Sad in more ways than one. ­čśŤ

          I recently became a former Verizon customer and switched to Sprint. I’m fortunate enough to live in a Sprint LTE market, and although i’ll admit that their 4G isn’t quite as zippy as Verizon’s, i’m also paying $40 a month less and still get unlimited data, so it’s worth the switch. From what i’ve read, their LTE updates include a contingency for LTE-Advanced which will mean a software upgrade to the towers instead of a new network build-out like Verizon and AT&T will need. So i am hoping that once Sprint has a nationwide LTE network going, they’ll be one of the first to market with LTE-Advanced and leave Verizon choking on their statement about 5G and 6G…

    Puerto Rico? lol. don’t they have bigger markets to get to? No offense to my PUerto Rico Residents.

  • chris125
