Sprint has network problems. Major problems. And they've gotten a lot worse lately. Really, really bad. Not all areas are affected - and in fact some have improved already, but more and more areas are getting so bad that Sprint's 3G data is completely unusable there, especially since the introduction of the iPhone.

On October 20th, VZW will be turning on LTE coverage in 20 new markets, and this morning, an announcement was sent out with details of 13 new cities that will be added to the mix on November 17th:
- Little Rock, AR
- Savannah, GA
- Cedar Rapids and Des Moines, IA
- Lexington, KY
- Kansas City and Springfield, MO
- Lincoln, NE
- Orange County, NY
- Greater Providence, Rapid City, SD
- Roanoke, VA
- Appleton, WS
It's clear that Big Red has no intentions of slowing down until it blankets the entire country with super-fast LTE, and at the rate it's going, that day will probably be pretty soon.
