    In launching 4G LTE in 45 new locations, Sprint now boasts a 4G LTE cellular network that is 230 markets strong all across the United States. The company also notes that 4G LTE cellular coverage has been expanded into Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island, N.Y. In addition, much of Sprint's 3G network has also been improved in terms of coverage.

    Many of Apple's latest devices, including the iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPad Mini, iPad Air, and iPad with retina display can take advantage of Sprint's 4G LTE network, as well as many non-Apple handsets and tablets. 4G LTE offers a theoretical download speed of around 100Mb/s, but due to the realities of bandwidth, interference, and network congestion, users may only experience between 20-40Mb/s on 4G LTE.

    Really panhandle Idaho gets it before Salt Lake City. Sprint needs to step it up before winter hits.

    Sprint just introduced Spark. Now they have the fastest LTE over all carriers with a 2.5Ghz spectrum and are introducing triband phones on November 8. They'll soon start on certain locations. Checkout the link. They announced it yesterday. Plus you guys should do some research about the guy who owns SoftBank if you ever read about him. He doesn't like to lose. http://faster.sprint.com/2013/10/30/...b:Home_Content
