Sprint brings up LTE in four more markets

4g lte small1 - for some reason we don't have an alt tag hereSprint’s high speed LTE network went live in four new markets today: Manhattan and Junction City, Kansas; Sedalia, Missouri; Baltimore, Maryland; and Gainesville, Georgia; as part of their Network Vision initiative.

Sprint subscribers in those areas should be seeing increased 4G speeds as well as enhanced 3G signal, performance, and theoretically call quality.

The turn-up comes about a month later than we’d previously expected it to be, but some other markets have been coming up a little earlier than expected.

It’s nice to see that Sprint remains committed to get the LTE technology out after the previous WiMAX network, which was widely-advertised but unfortunately not widely available.

If you’re in any of the markets that went live, let us know how it’s working for you and how good the coverage is. Some of the LTE markets that have been reported by Sprint as live had less than stellar coverage at go-time but have been slowly getting better day by day.

      I’ve read (may have been here) that they’re calling cities “up” when they reach a minimum threshold of something like 30% of what they expect capacity to be.

      I’m still waiting on pretty much anything from them now… I went to the LTE because, well, I sort of had to, and Sprint’s 3G is killing me.

      Considering these markets were 40 days behind what we were expecting, I’d add 40 days and assume that’s on track at the moment.

    Sprint better step it up. Not only is it taking them a really long time to get lte up and running and its almost october but the 3g in most areas is still horrible. If tmobile keeps improving as fast as they are sprint has a big problem especially since I am really close to jumping ship.

    i dont necessarily have a problem waiting for lte, its just that sprint is too slow compared to the other providers and not only that, when they open a market it really needs to work the moment its available and not like lag and have connection problems as some people have reported
