Sprint brings LTE to 17 new cities in Illinois, California, and more

Sprint Network VisionSprint is slowly but surely building up its LTE network, and today announced that 17 new cities in Illinois, New York, Maryland, Pennsylvania, California, Mississippi, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa now have access to LTE.

In alphabetical order, they are:

  • Auburn, N.Y.
  • Bethesda, Md.
  • Bloomsburg/Berwick, Pa.
  • Buffalo, N.Y.
  • Danville, Ill.
  • Dubuque, Iowa
  • Eau Claire, Wis.
  • EurekaArcata/Fortuna, Calif.
  • Hattiesburg, Miss.
  • Hopkinsville, Ky.
  • Indiana, Pa.
  • Marion/Herrin,  Ill.
  • Mt. Vernon, Ill.
  • Pittsburgh
  • Redding, Calif.
  • Rochester, Minn.
  • Utica, N.Y.

It’s important to remember that this has nothing to do with Sprint’s faster Spark network, or Voice over LTE, or wideband LTE, or any of the other things we’ve been hearing about lately. Instead, it’s just regular, boring old LTE.

Still, it’s great news that more people on Sprint will have access to usable data once again – even if Sprint’s speeds pale in comparison to T-Mobile’s.

Are you one of the lucky ones with Sprint LTE? If so, post some speed tests below!
