This morning, Sprint quietly announced the official deployment of 4G LTE into a few markets including San Francisco, Washington D.C., New York City, and some towns in Florida. While a Sprint spokesman said the coverage is somewhat spotty in these areas, this roll out is all part of a larger deployment that is to take place later down the road.
As we have noted before, you will sometimes see 4G LTE lit up in an area that hasn’t been announced, but that’s how this process works. According to Sprint, this is to allow customers to utilize the network to its full potential, if they can find it. It’s like an LTE Easter egg hunt.
