Sprint Brings LTE To 70 Markets, Brings Total to 300

Sprint announced on Monday the addition of several markets to their LTE network bringing their total to 300. The Overland Park Kansas carrier announced in a blog post that they are poised to deliver improved call quality and bring 50-60Mbps data speeds to their network.

In that blog post they announced, “These advances are made possible because of the continued rollout of Sprint’s Network Vision program in 2013, which includes a complete upgrade of the 3G network and deployment of 4G LTE. As part of that program, Sprint is redeploying its 800MHz spectrum for LTE and 3G with the goal of delivering improved in-building coverage for voice and data”. I would imagine their goal is going to be to hit the ground running in 2014 to gain significant ground lost to the two main US Carriers.
