Those of you who are on Sprint and thus have no need for opinions on the Nexus 4's lack of a 4G radio will probably agree: more LTE coverage is more gooder. Well, the Now Network concurs and the carrier is opening up the airwaves in a few more cities and areas, including Anderson, Indiana; Harrisonburg, Virginia; and Peabody, Massachusetts.

Here's the full list of cities that launch today (with coverage expanding in these areas over the coming months):

  • Anderson, Ind.
  • Clarke County, Va./Jefferson County, W.Va.
  • Harrisburg/Carlisle/Hershey, Pa.
  • Hagerstown, Md./Martinsburg, W.Va.
  • Harrisonburg, Va.
  • Muncie, Ind.
  • Peabody, Mass.
  • Salina, Kan.
  • Shenandoah County, Va.
  • South Bend/Mishawaka, Ind.
  • Winchester, Va.

So far, Sprint has been doing a decent job of continuing its network rollout, but it's still having trouble keeping pace with Verizon and AT&T. That could be set to change next year, though, as both the Softbank acquisition as well as the purchase of a bit of spectrum in the midwest are expected to be completed in mid-2013. We can likely expect the expansion to ramp up after that. The question is, will it be enough to fend of AT&T and Verizon in that amount of time? I mean, a lot can happen in a year.

    Well now that they have lte in my area I may consider them when my contract is up with verizon. Unlimited data and save some money compared to what I pay with verizon

        It's weak but I pick it up in my part of the Bronx.

      If you get coverage from T-Mobile that would save you money too because they offer unlimited data now as well.

  • Ryan

    Those are all Really close to Oregon/Washington. Hopefully by the end of my contract, I will have lte. Oh well

  • Al

    good for you sprint. i am glad to see all of that foreign cash flow being spread out to contractors across the usa. at least.... i hope you guys are using an american company to build out your network.

    maybe someone around here knows.

      Nope, one's Alcatel Lucent which is French, another is Samsung which is Korean, I seem to have forgotten the last one. Could be American, I doubt it though.

      • needa
