Sprint announced a major expansion of its still-nascent LTE network today, with three large markets headlining the Now Network's growing 4G footprint: Los Angeles, Charlotte, and Memphis. 18 other, smaller markets were also announced. Here's the full list.

  • Albemarle, N.C.
  • Bloomington, Ind.
  • Charlotte, N.C.
  • Contra Costa County, Calif.
  • Denison, Texas
  • Greeneville, Tenn.
  • Joplin, Mo.

  • Rochelle, Ill.

California, North Carolina, Florida, and Tennessee seem to be getting the most love in this announcement, with Contra Costa County and Los Angeles making up a rather large chunk of square mileage now blanketed in the warm embrace of four-gee. While I was rarely able to maintain a consistent Sprint LTE connection in LA last week, I guess I'll have to try again soon.
