Sprint still lags behind Verizon, AT&T for LTE coverage

Sprint has expanded its 4G LTE coverage in the United States. The addition of LTE to 22 more markets means that Sprint now covers a total of 110 areas, with the carrier also naming other locations that will have LTE access in the coming months, bringing it closer to its goal of covering 200 million people with its LTE network by the end of this year.

LTE has been activated in Napa, CA; Palatka, Sebring, Tampa, and Miami, FL; Dalton, GA; Warsaw, ID; New Orleans and Baton Rouge, LA; St. Joseph, Benton Harbor, Lansing, and East Lansing, MI; St. Cloud, MN; Raleigh, Dunn, and Henderson, NC; Clarksville and Kingsport, TN; Corsica, TX; Longview and Centralia, WA; and Fond du Lac, WI.

The list of markets that will get LTE in the future includes Grand Rapids, Allegan, Ann Arbor, Battle Creek, Flint, and Mount Pleasant, MI; Corpus Christi, Eagle Pass, and Laredo, TX; Oak Harbor and Aberdeen, WA; and Marshfield, Wisconsin Rapids, Watertown and Fort Atkinson, WI.

While increasing the number of markets covered by LTE to 110 is helpful to Sprint customers, the carrier still lags behind the 263 LTE markets operated by AT&T, and the 497 run by Verizon Wireless. Working with Dish Network or Softbank, whichever gains shareholder approval, could help the carrier speed up its rollout in the future.
