Better late than never, I suppose. Today Sprint announced that it's bringing new LTE service to Boston and Framingham, Mass., Austin and Bryan-College Station, TX, Fort Wayne, IN, and Western Puerto Rico. The latter is actually not the first round of 4G coverage for the territory, as PR has had coverage in a few southern cities for a while. Additionally, the carrier improved its 3G services throughout the entire island.

It's a good start for 2013 as Sprint continues its Network Vision plan, which should only ramp up this year as a variety of deals—including the Softbank acquisition, the Clearwire buyout, and spectrum purchases—finalize. Here's hoping that we're on the verge of a grand new Now Network.

My call quality needs it.

    I guess you would have preferred Laughlin, NV?

    Sprint brings LTE to Puerto Rico.

    But not New York City. Well sorry, ok. I guess you can say they "brought it" even if it's only available on random blocks that are miles apart.

      (I used to see you at XDA all the time...)
      Anyhoo, that is starting to sound better each time I read about it.
      I mean, FFS. As mush as people will appreciate NV without realizing it, that's not what is bringing in the subscribers. It's the promise of "LTE, coming to (insert your city) any day now!" line that the Sprint reps throw out willy nilly. The same line that got me into a new contract, with a new LTE phone. 4 moths ago. Which is 2 longer than the LTE promise made.

        They threw that line out with WiMax back in the day, too. Look how that turned out. Just goes to show that history repeats itself.

    • Freak4Dell

      No kidding. Why does that woman look like an angry man?

  • Lefty Ruggiero

    will NY be the last to get LTE? its not were a major market or anything.

  • Scott

    Sprint is such a joke, glad I'm gone.

    Sprint is the now network for small city's, big city's are not there specialty from what I can tell

    Thats cool I guess, except for the fact that in Atlanta proper (listed as one of the first go-live cities) I still cant get signal in my house, office, favorite downtown district or park. I only get it sporatically driving around.

  • James

    Been waiting for 4G in OKC since I got the Evo two years ago. Now waiting for LTE in the same area. Western Puerto Rico? Seriously?
