Sprint reaches 300 cities with LTE coverage Sprint has announced that 70 new markets now support the carrier's LTE network.
There were some major cities included, like St. Louis and San Diego, but mainly the additions were smaller, rural areas across the nation.

The carrier's rollout has been different than other major carriers, as Sprint continues to rollout out small cities along with bigger cities, but there is still notable missing areas, like San Francisco.

By the end of the year, the carrier says it expects 200 million Americans to be within LTE support by the end of the year, within striking range of AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile, all of which have had more successful rollouts.

For those in congested areas, Sprint has begun slowly rolling out 'Spark,' a higher bandwidth, faster network that can theoretically allow downstream speeds above 50 Mbit/s.

I'm sorry but aren't there 315 MILLION in the US.......

Rhetorical question!

Reaching 200 Mil in the next 15 days ain't gonna happen and never would have.

Even so........200 million is only 2/3rds of our country. What crap to offer something so important to only a fraction!

Sprint customer service improved dramatically but their service has since sucked more arse than in a long time!

So glad I cancelled my cell service and went with Vonage. Cell service is an absolute waste of money, time and connectivity to another human being. Not to mention, Illinois is outlawing cell phone use come January 1st, WITHOUT HANDS-FREE. It will be illegal to hold phone, text on it or do anything else. A cop can even issue a ticket for using your phone while simply dialing a number.
