Shocked One of the biggest markets in the country and still no sign of LTE? Sprint is just making my decision to go to Verizon that much easier.

Yea but being that huge of a market means a ton of traffic. Yes agree its something sprint should be getting first. But, with that much traffic the towers are going to have to stressed more then say a tower in the middle of nowhere. Not saying this is a smart move to wait this long to still not have LTE but sprint is the cheaper of the options in the area of the main 3 and unless they can give a better service then say verizon or AT&T at a lesser price I think sprint's not to worried about it yet (even if they are they dont have the money to upgrade their services at the moment as the deal with softbank is still waiting approval.).

Sprint is currently in the process of updating the NYC towers to network vision. NYC has A LOT of towers and it takes longer to update them (base station hardware and panels). The smaller towns in this announcement are quicker to deploy so therefore they get announced first. Some of the LTE updates in this notice are in Sprint affiliated markets and not Sprint directly. Most of the LTE in NYC is currently in the Bronx and near Morningside Heights. There's only one tower in mid town that's 4G right now. All other updates are currently 3G enhancements.

The Indiana markets mentioned are now owned by Sprint, & not iPCS. Sprint finally bought out iPCS in 2009. Those markets needed major overhaul, as iPCS didn't build out those markets as well as Sprint would have done.

Actually Sprint has already begun turning on LTE in parts of NYC enycertifiedg .I'm using it to respond to you right now on my iPhone 5. LTE is up in running in the North Central and central areas of the bronx, and along i-95 from the harlem river to the bronx zoo. There's other small pockets of LTE in the bronx as well. North west Manhattan from 110th-155th Along Broadway and the surrounding areas have LTE service, as well the area around Bryant park have it as well. You can go to www.sensorly.com to find sprint LTE coverage areas in NYC .

Yeah I know sprint 3G service has been abysmal as of lately. But when you can pick up LTE service it's wonderful . I speed test at 50ms ping 27mbps dl and 9mbps ul. It feels as if you're surfing on home Wi-Fi.
