During the pre-launch phase, customers with capable 4G LTE devices may begin to see 4G LTE coverage in these areas and are welcome to use the network even before it officially launches. Sprint plans to announce commercial availability of 4G LTE in these cities in the coming months, at which point we expect coverage, performance and reliability to get even better. Eventually, the markets will fill in until coverage largely matches the existing nationwide 3G footprint. By the end of 2013, Sprint expects to have completed the nationwide build out of the all new 3G and 4G network.

Currently, Sprint offers the new 4G LTE service in 19 metropolitan areas: Atlanta; Athens, Ga.; Baltimore; Calhoun, Ga.; Carrollton, Ga.; Newnan, Ga.; Rome, Ga.; Dallas; Fort Worth, Texas; Gainesville, Ga.; Granbury-Hood County, Texas; Houston; Huntsville, Texas; Kansas City, Mo./Kansas City, Kan.; Manhattan/Junction City, Kan.; San Antonio, Texas; Sedalia, Mo.; Waco, Texas; and St. Joseph, Mo.

That's all Nice and Dandy; BUT how can you have Service in Perto Rico? But not in Alaska? Makes no sense to me? We have Load of People up here who would LOVE to have some Competion up here besides just AT&T & our local Wireless Providers.

Because Puerto Rico is way cooler but yet nice and tropical and still part of the USA and North America while almost no one enjoys Ekimos or Palin Redneck Land. That's why.

It certainly sounds impressive, but what does 'opening LTE service in Chicago' mean? One hotspot? Besides, it's too little too late. Apple fans will clamor for the new iPhone because of it's LTE support, and if someone's network can't support it, they'll go elsewhere. Though hopefully NOT AT&T! Still, I've love to see more alternatives to the few existing data networks.
