Sprint today announced it has forged LTE 4G roaming agreements with 15 more rural network operators. Today's additions boost the number of carriers participating in Sprint's Rural Roaming Preferred Provider program to 27. According to Sprint, the roaming agreements extend across 565,000 square miles in 27 states, covering more than 38 million people. The agreements allow Sprint customers to roam onto the LTE networks of the rural carriers and vice versa. Roaming agreements allow Sprint to gain LTE coverage in areas where it doesn't own spectrum or has not yet deployed LTE. Some of the new participants include Bluegrass Cellular, Blue Wireless, Pine Belt Wireless, Pioneer Cellular, Public Service Wireless, and Syringa Wireless.
