Sprint 4G LTE Hitting 100+ Cities ‘Months’ after iPhone 5 Release Josh Smith09/10/2012 Sprint just announced over 100 new 4G LTE cities which are currently under construction and should launch in the, “coming months.” The Sprint iPhone 5 didn’t look like a viable option last week, even though unlimited data is incredibly tempting, thanks mainly due to a lack of 4G LTE coverage.Advertisement Today, Sprint drastically increased the appeal for a Sprint iPhone 5 by naming specific 4G LTE launch cities for the next few months and sharing plans to complete 4G LTE coverage to the scale of its current 3G network by the end of 2013. Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 5 with 4G LTE support at the September 12th event in California and the iPhone 5 release date is set for 9 days later on September 21st. Friday we received word by way of The Wall Street Journal that the iPhone 5 will support global 4G LTE. The Sprint 4G LTE network is only live in 19 markets today, but by the end of the year it is likely to show up in the following cities.Advertisement Sprint 4G LTE Coverage Map – Estimated 2012 Advertisement View Sprint 3G LTE coverage Estimated 2012 in a full screen map New Sprint 4G LTE Coverage Plans Aguadilla-Isabela-San Sebastian, Puerto Rico Albermarle, N.C.
