Sprint’s 4G LTE network now live in 15 cities

If you’re a Sprint user, you might be able to access Sprint’s new 4G LTE network, depending on where you are. Yesterday, Sprint officially launched the new service in 5 markets: Kansas City, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, and Texas. Instead of stopping at those 5 cities, today they announced that the new 4G LTE service was available in an additional 10 cities, bringing the total launch cities to 15.

As of today, Sprint’s 4G LTE network is now available in:

  • Atlanta
  • Athens, Ga.
  • Calhoun, Ga.
  • Carrollton, Ga.
  • Newnan, Ga.
  • Rome, Ga.
  • Dallas
  • Fort Worth, Texas
  • Granbury-Hood County, Texas
  • Houston
  • Huntsville, Texas
  • San Antonio, Texas
  • Waco, Texas
  • Kansas City, Mo.-Kan.
  • St. Joseph, Mo.

We’ve known about Sprint’s plan to launch their 4G LTE service for quiet some time now. Despite not having a 4G LTE network, the company has been launching 4G LTE phones left and right in preparation for this day. Despite being the first to launch its “4G” Wimax network back in 2008, Sprint is third (among the top 4 carriers in the U.S.) to launch its 4G LTE network. Verizon Wireless built their network first and currently has more 4G LTE markets than all other U.S. carriers combined.

With their 4G LTE network now available to some, users will be able to take advantage of 4G LTE devices on Sprint’s network, such as Samsung Galaxy Nexus, HTC Evo 4G LTE, Samsung Galaxy S III, and the LG Viper 4G LTE.

If you’re in one of the new Sprint 4G LTE markets, let us know how fast things are going for you!
