Sprint continues to build out their LTE coverage, as it announced today that the company has activated LTE service in 22 more U.S. cities today, bringing it’s LTE coverage up to 110 markets around the country.
That compares to 263 LTE markets for AT&T and 497 for Verizon Wireless, which was the first to build the high-speed cellular network across the country. T-Mobile’s nascent LTE network only covers seven cities. Today’s announcement still leaves Sprint with major holes in its LTE coverage, however, with cities like New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and many more without service.
The 22 new markets launched today are: Baton Rouge, LA: Centralia, WA; Clarksville, TN; Corsicana, TX; Dalton, GA; Dunn, NC; Fond du Lac, WI: Gainesville, FL: Henderson, NC; Kingsport, TN; Lansing/East Lansing, MI; Longview, WA; Miami, FL; Napa, CA; New Orleans, LA; Palatka, FL; Raleigh, NC; Sebring, FL; St. Cloud, MN; St. Joseph/Benton Harbor, MI; Tampa, FL; Warsaw, IN.
The company plans to have 200 million people covered with service by the end of the year.
