Sprint has always come to mind when mentioning 4G, with it’s “ultra fast” speeds it has been the choice for users who were looking for an option for quite some time. Now with Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile all entering the market Sprint has upped it’s game and turned on it’s 4G network in 6 of is cities.
Now available in New York City, Hartford, New Haven, New Brunswick, Trenton and Tampa, it marks the first 4G network to be released in many of it’s areas. It is in fact the first 4G network to hit the Big Apple, and their plans are to aggressively expand beyond it’s current 61 markets.
Sprint 4G is now available in 61 markets: California – Merced, Modesto, Stockton, Visalia; Connecticut – Hartford, New Haven; Delaware – Wilmington; Florida – Daytona Beach, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa; Georgia – Atlanta, Milledgeville; Hawaii – Honolulu, Maui; Idaho – Boise; Illinois – Chicago; Maryland – Baltimore; Massachusetts – Boston; Michigan – Grand Rapids; Minnesota – Minneapolis-St.Paul: Missouri – Kansas City, St. Louis; New Jersey – New Brunswick, Trenton; New York – New York, Rochester, Syracuse; Nevada – Las Vegas; North Carolina – Charlotte, Greensboro (includes High Point and Winston-Salem), Raleigh (includes Cary, Chapel Hill and Durham); Oregon – Eugene, Portland, Salem; Pennsylvania – Harrisburg, Lancaster, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Reading, York; Rhode Island – Providence; Tennessee – Nashville; Texas – Abilene, Amarillo, Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Killeen/Temple, Lubbock, Midland/Odessa, San Antonio, Waco, Wichita Falls; Utah – Salt Lake City; Virginia – Richmond; and Washington – Bellingham, Seattle, Tri-Cities, Yakima.
Now users of the HTC EVO 4G, Epic 4G, or their Overdrive Mobile Hotspot will no longer have to turn off their 4G while in these cities!
Last summer, my Sprint store indicated 4G service would be available in Ann Arbor, MI by Sep2010. When will it really be here?
Isn’t there a glaring hole in the midwest? Ohio has nothing, and Toledo hasn’t been on their radar for the future plans released. Getting old guys….also 2.2 for Epic, anyone…anyone….
