Sprint announces LTE coverage in 34 more markets across ten states

Sprint LTE 9-15Early this morning, Sprint announced that its 4G LTE network buildout has progressed, with coverage now available in 34 new markets in ten different states: Louisiana, Michigan, Texas, Alabama, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Georgia, Oregon, and North Carolina. Here’s the full list of cities that can enjoy all the LTE goodness that Sprint can offer:

  • Alexandria, LA
  • Allegan, MI
  • Amarillo, TX
  • Anniston/Oxford, AL
  • Bay City, MI
  • Beaumont/Port Arthur, TX
  • Bedford, PA
  • Corpus Christi, TX
  • Del Rio, TX
  • Enid, OK
  • Fort Atkinson, WI
  • Greenville, MS
  • Houma/Bayou Cane/Thibodaux, LA
  • Juniata and Mifflin counties, PA
  • Kinston, NC
  • Lake Charles, LA
  • Lawton, OK
  • Longview, TX
  • Lufkin, TX
  • Lumberton, NC
  • Macon, GA
  • Marshfield/Wisconsin Rapids, WI
  • Midland, TX
  • Monroe, MI
  • Montgomery, AL
  • Muskogee, OK
  • Oklahoma City, OK
  • Ruston, LA
  • Salem, OR
  • San Angelo, TX
  • Sheboygan, WI
  • Stillwater, OK
  • Victoria, TX
  • Whitewater, WI

Sprint says that its LTE service is now live in 185 markets across the US, although one glaring problem remains: Sprint’s 4G markets tend to be located in rural areas, while people in major metropolitan areas are still waiting. By comparison, T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network is now live in only 154 markets, but T-Mobile’s focus on big cities allows it to brag that over 180 million people are now covered with its LTE.

Instead of a pure market count, I’d like Sprint to release some numbers on total POPs that are covered with LTE. That would be a bit more revealing – who’s with me?
