Sprint 4G LTE Arrives Early in Four More Cities
Sprint 4G LTE has arrived early in three more launch cities just a day ahead of its official release date.
According to S4GRU, Sprint has stopped blocking 4G LTE access in three more markets including Dallas, Houston and San Antonio, Texas. It appears that those who own Sprint 4G LTE devices in and around Austin and Waco are seeing access to Sprint’s new network as well.
The news comes shortly after Sprint 4G LTE access arrived early for those toting Sprint 4G LTE devices in Kansas City, another Sprint 4G LTE launch city.
We’re also hearing from users in Atlanta who claim that 4G LTE access is available.
4G LTE device owners in Dallas, Houston and San Antonio who are in possession of a HTC EVO 4G LTE, Samsung Galaxy Nexus or LG Viper 4G LTE should now be able to pull down data speeds that can reach up to 10 times faster than Sprint’s CDMA 3G network.
Since the launch of those devices, owners have only had access to the network’s aging 3G network.
Sprint’s new network is so wide open and new and means that owners should expect to be able to pull down some impressive data speeds. The speeds might not be on par with the speeds that we saw weeks ago which were 25 times faster than normal 3G but they should be fast nonetheless.
The video below showing off AT&T and Verizon 4G LTE data speeds should give customers an idea of what to expect in the future.
Tomorrow is the day that Sprint will officially be launching 4G LTE in five markets in the United States and the carrier should be lighting up more markets in the U.S. ahead of the launch of the iPhone 5 this fall, a device that is rumored to have 4G LTE on board.
Anyone seeing access?
