Sprint 4G LTE appears quietly in San Francisco, New York

Sprint has quietly turned the switch on its 4G LTE network in parts of San Francisco, New York and Washington, DC, which suggests an official launch may be at hand.

While confirming a report that appeared in The Verge, a company spokesman did not specify which sections of cities have faster access to the network.

"During a pre-launch, customers with 4G LTE compatible devices can begin to see the 4G LTE coverage in these areas are encouraged to use the network even before it officially launches" Sprint representative Roni Singleton CNET said, adding that the company plans to announce the commercial availability of the 4G LTE network on the San Francisco Peninsula in the coming months.

"Over time, the market is filled until the coverage is largely the existing 3G footprint national," she said. Carrier, which is lagging behind Verizon Wireless and AT & T network LTE, announced in October that it would expand in 22 other markets - including San Francisco - "in the coming months," but he did not give a specific timeframe. CNET reported last year that LTE can not happen in the major markets of New York and San Francisco until March.

Sprint has been catching up in terms of 4G LTE, far behind rivals Verizon Wireless and AT & T. According to the plan of Sprint Network Vision, which is estimated at $ 4 billion to $ 5 billion of the company is closing its network based on iDEN Nextel, moving to 4G LTE, and at the same time improve its 3G CDMA.

Until now, it has widely deployed LTE in small markets. Sprint noted the fastest wireless service is currently available in 49 networks, and announced nearly 200 additional areas where LTE is on its way.
