Sprint LTE coverage map slide leaks

Sprint_lte

Sprint has kept itself behind most of the competition in the LTE rollout race since it started. Verizon's the clear leader, with what seems like more cities being lit up with LTE every week. AT&T is in a very distant second, with a measly 28 LTE markets currently available. T-Mobile and Sprint are kind of tied, though, with both carriers having yet to introduce any LTE markets. 

And while today's leak doesn't include any specific LTE rollout dates for the smallest national carrier, it does tell us how much of the US will be covered in it. The green sections show where Sprint's own LTE network will be, while the bluish-grey color shows where Sprint might have roaming agreements. Both colors take up the majority of the country, which is a fair amount more than AT&T or Verizon's networks.

It's really too bad that Sprint has taken so long to introduce LTE to its customers. This coverage map, had its contents been applicable a year ago, would've scared AT&T and Verizon so badly that a vast majority of us would be blanketed in the incredibly fast mobile network.
