Sprint today expanded its LTE 4G network footprint by 41 markets. Today's launch means LTE is available to Sprint subscribers in 151 markets around the U.S. Some of the new markets include Oakland, Calif.; Daytona Beach and Jacksonville, Fla.; Portland, Ore.; Nashville, Tenn.; and Philadelphia. Sprint says it is on track to offer LTE to 200 million POPs by the end of the year, though Sprint didn't say how many POPs its LTE network covers today. In addition to the network expansion, Sprint also announced its second quarter earnings. Sprint had a net loss of $1.6 billion on revenue of $7.2 billion. Sprint said that 86% of its post-paid device sales were smartphones, including 1.4 million iPhones, but the company lost 2 million net customers during the period. Sprint indicated that many of the customers it lost were due to its shutdown of the iDEN network, which was turned off June 30.
