Sprint launches 4G LTE in 21 new markets in 10 states, including Los Angeles

Sprint LTE April 18 - for some reason we don't have an alt tag hereIt looks like that rumor we told you about last week is true, even if it’s coming a bit later than we had hoped. Sprint has just announced 21 new 4G LTE markets in 10 different states, although most of the new places follow Sprint’s regular pattern of launching in small to mid-sized towns.

One notable exception to this is Los Angeles, which is now officially (finally) an LTE market. A couple college towns  are in the mix, too, including Mankato and Bloomington, as well as a few tourist destinations like West Palm Beach and Memphis.

Here’s the full list:

California:

  • Contra Costa County
  • Los Angeles

Florida:

  • Palm Bay
  • Port St. Lucie
  • West Palm Beach

Illinois:

  • Rochelle

Indiana:

  • Bloomington
  • Lafayette

Minnesota:

  • Mankato/North Mankato

Missouri:

  • Joplin

North Carolina:

  • Albemarle
  • Charlotte
  • Lincolnton
  • Salisbury
  • Shelby

Tennessee:

  • Greeneville
  • Memphis
  • Tullahoma

Texas:

  • Denison
  • Kerrville
Virginia:
  • Norfolk/Virginia Beach/Newport News

Overall, this is a great announcement from Sprint, but I’m still wondering about the rest of those 100 cities that were supposed to get LTE soon and still haven’t. In any case, if you’re in one of these new markets, do a few speed tests and let us know your results!
