Sprint today announced that its LTE 4G network will be available to two of New York City's five boroughs beginning July 30. Residents of The Bronx and Brooklyn will soon be able to access LTE and improved 3G service, but those living in Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island will have to wait until later this year. In addition to partially lighting up LTE in NYC, Sprint said that it has finalized an agreement with Transit Wireless, which will see Sprint service added to all 277 NYC subway stations over time. The first 36 stations, sprinkled around midtown Manhattan, will go live in early 2014, with others to follow. Sprint said it is on pace to provide 200 million people with LTE by the end of 2013.

keep expanding

I'm glad that Sprint is still expanding, I wish they would speed up but at least they haven't stopped.
Competition is good in every industry. It be nice if Sprint, T-Mobile and all smaller carriers would upgrade their networks to LTE and put some pressure on AT&T and Verizon. It would be nice if the big 2 would finally feel the pressure and feel like they need to lower their prices to keep consumers instead of thinking they can keep rising prices.
It's exciting to see Sprint rebuild. Even though it'll take more time, it would almost be worth it for a lot of people to go over to them just to lock in that data for when Sprint's network vision is complete. Maybe with Softbank backing them and a li...
