Sprint 4G LTE Network Update

Posted by CMatSprint in Announcements on Oct 22, 2012 10:10:30 AM

We want to share an update about the progress we are making with bringing Sprint customers an all-new 4G LTE network.


A number of communities in the greater Chicago area, in addition to other cities in Kansas, Massachusetts and Texas, now are able to experience the power and speed of Sprint’s all-new 4G LTE.


Cities include:

  • Chicago Area Suburbs: Addison, Bolingbrook, Des Plaines, Downers Grove, Kankakee, Rockford, Joliet, Naperville, Palatine and Plainfield
  • Gary, IN
  • Hutchinson and McPherson, KS
  • New Bedford and Fall River, MA
  • Wichita Falls, TX


We are working hard to deliver additional cities in the coming months. We will continue to provide up-to-date progress reports to you as we keep pushing aggressively to deliver an all-new 4G LTE network. We know a strong, robust wireless network is increasingly important as wireless users want to access emails quickly, upload photos/videos to friends and family, and routinely check in with social networks – all on their smartphone. Millions of power data users in several major cities will soon enjoy the 4G LTE experience with the only Truly Unlimitedsm 4G LTE plans from a national carrier.



While signals are available in these areas, more sites will continue to be turned on in the days and weeks ahead making availability only stronger. With the addition of 4G LTE service, our network in these areas can handle more voice and data traffic. The network upgrades will make sending text messages, surfing the Web, sharing photos and downloading videos easier, faster and more reliable.


Learn more about our improvements in our latest video.



Today, we now offer the new 4G LTE service in 32 metropolitan areas and are expected to be in more than 115 additional cities in coming months. We introduced our all-new 4G LTE network in July 2012 and expect to have largely completed the nationwide build-out by the end of 2013.
