On Wednesday, Sprint announced the expansion of both its 3G and 4G LTE networks. The company’s high-speed 4G LTE network can now be accessed in Baltimore, Md., Gainesville, Ga., Manhattan/Junction City, Kan., and Sedalia, Mo. In addition, locations in Baltimore, Boston and Washington, D.C. will have now have access to Sprint’s upgraded 3G services that the company claims will deliver better in-building coverage and fewer dropped calls.
“Our customers are enjoying new applications and devices that increase the demand for mobile data,” says Bob Azzi, Senior Vice President of Sprint. “The network build-out – that today is playing out in four new cities – will provide nothing less than a state-of-the art network platform for the next generation of customers. Customers across the country will begin to experience better 3G service on their devices and will be able to take advantage of 4G LTE on cutting-edge devices as we continue to launch more cities.”
This column hears that Sprint will be testing 4G LTE in Los Angeles very soon, so look for a signal on your Samsung Galaxy S3 or other 4G LTE capable phone. It’s important to remember that Sprint’s 4G WiMax phones are different and won’t be compatible with LTE networks.
