Newegg is one of the best places to buy electronics online, and we've posted countless deals from the store over the past few years. Internet-based stores have largely been exempt in the past from paying U.S. state taxes, but those legal loopholes are slowly being closed.

Sprint Rolls Out LTE To More Cities, Begins Network Vision Rollout In Chicago, New York, And Los Angeles

Sprint has some presents for you, especially if you live in the midwest. For starters, several cities are getting their shiny new LTE networks lit up today including Wichita, KS, Waukegan-Lake County, IL and more (listed below). As an added bonus, the #3 carrier also announced that the Network Vision rollout is beginning in Chicago, New York City, and Los Angeles. For those who are unaware, the Network Vision plan provides for significant improvements to the existing 3G infrastructure, in addition to eventual LTE upgrades.

Sprint's Initial LTE Rollout Is Officially Go, Covers 15 Markets Throughout Texas, Georgia, Missouri, And Kansas

While some users were able to connect to Sprint's LTE network over the weekend, the official rollout has just begun. The Now Network started with 15 initial markets, including:

  • Atlanta, Ga. 
  • Athens, Ga.
  • Calhoun, Ga.
  • Carrollton, Ga.
  • Newnan, Ga.
  • Rome, Ga.
  • Dallas
  • Fort Worth, Texas
  • Granbury-Hood County, Texas
  • Houston
  • Huntsville, Texas
  • San Antonio, Texas
  • Waco, Texas
  • Kansas City, Mo.-Kan.
  • St. Joseph, Mo.

Don't expect the break-neck speeds of Verizon or AT&T's respective LTE networks, however: Sprint is only promising a paltry 6-8Mbps down and 2-3Mbps up with bursts up to 25Mbps. Of course, if you've been stuck using Sprint's 3G network (or even its current "4G"), this is definitely a welcome speed boost, even if it doesn't compare to the competition.
