Sprint expands 4G LTE network to 17 more markets

Sprint is making an aggressive roll out behind its 4G LTE network, bringing its high speed mobile broadband access to n additional 17 more markets. The addition of these markets span across the United States.

Here are the 17 new additions to Sprint's 4G LTE network:

  • Eureka/Arcata/Fortuna, CA
  • Redding, CA
  • Bethesda, MD
  • Dubuque, IA
  • Danville, IL
  • Marion/Herrin, IL
  • Mt. Vernon, IL
  • Hopkinsville, KY
  • Rochester, MN
  • Hattiesburg, MS
  • Auburn, NY
  • Buffalo, NY
  • Utica, NY
  • Bloomsburg/Berwick, PA
  • Indiana, PA
  • Pittsburgh, PA
  • Eau Claire, WI

Keep in mind that this appears to be just regular 4G LTE coverage for the Now Network, and not the more advanced Sprint Spark network. Sprint Spark takes into account network conditions, location, and other information to connect to the best frequency to get the fastest, most reliable connection speeds.

Are you living in one of these 17 new markets? Let us know how you like the new LTE speeds that Sprint is bringing to your area.

Sprint expands 4G LTE network to 17 more markets


Come on Sprint: how does it take this long to get LTE in Bethesda MD? That's a lot of government business you've lost with that delay.

For Sprint users, these have to be welcomed additions, especially with the numbers of smaller areas included.

I live in Phoenix, AZ the 6th largest city population wise in the United States and Sprint just got 4g service couple months back. It's the reason I switched to Tmobile. The 3g speed I was used to on Sprint compared to the 4g lte I got on tmobile was night and day

I want a Z50

I live in San Diego, where we have 4G. I just haven't found it yet... I get it on and off all over the place but every time I have and try to use it it magically disappears.

SPRINT needs to get BlackBerry phones. I left Sprint for Verizon 2 years ago because sprint wasn't getting the Z10. I hate verizon and there service sucks where I was working while Sprint service was up and running. Was about to switch back with an Unlock Z30 but they said it can't work on their network. I would like to move back to them but they need to stuck up on some BlackBerry phones.

SKN. 869. Z10

How about Petrolia CA? I need to keep saying at them bastardasfrom the scientology church.

They might have the worst signal in most areas and less than stellar customer service according to many...

But whenever a smaller competitor dies, the big ones feast over the carcass and in the end the consumer pays with higher rates and less choice...

Sprint, get your act together and you'll sign up people again. Add BB10 to the mix, and everything is hunky-dory...

--> Vodafone did it here in Australia (no BlackBerry phones), still pretty useless in the bush, but if you're a city-dweller it even works acceptably in a regional hub like Cairns now, I've been told....

 BlackBerry? I premdict the future's gonna be chenomenal! 

It's funny you say "whenever a smaller competitor dies, the big ones feast over the carcass and in the end the consumer pays with higher rates and less choice," because Sprint (the #3 carrier in the US) is trying to do exactly that to TMO (the #4 carrier.) Trying to feed all kinds of BS to our regulatory body, the FCC.

Why do I care about sprint on Crackberry news? Is there some BlackBerry connection I'm missing?

Everyone seems to want the lowest rates possible. As long as the get good customer service and services. However, slightly higher rates would allow the companies to roll out newer services to more areas faster. Thus giving the improvement that everyone is clamoring for.

Just my two cents.

Last month, Sprint formally announced San Jose was covered by 4G LTE. Its TOTAL MIS-REPRESENTATION. Two weeks later, the 4G tower near my house increased its range from 800 ft (I'm about 850 ft) to 2000 ft. Drawing 2000 ft circles around all the area 4G towers hardly covers the area. I can still drive all over San Jose, and pick up 4G here and there, nothing close to extensive coverage. Except for downtown, the rest of city is probably 10% coverage. The Sprint Stores get only 3G, pretty sad if they wish to demo to potential customer.
