Sprint lights up LTE in Kansas, Illinois and Massachusetts

Sprint announced a few more locations that’ll be able to use its LTE service. As of today, folks in Lawrence, Topeka and Wichita in Kansas, Waukegan-Lake in Illinois and Barnstable-Hyannis in Massachusetts will get to indulge in The Now Network’s new 4G LTE network. In its press release, the third largest wireless provider in the United States also said New York, Chicago and Los Angeles will be seeing improved 3G coverage courtesy of its Network Vision program.

The company is taking it one step at a time when it comes improving its network. With its Network Vision program, Sprint looks to continue to wine down its dying iDEN-powered Nextel brand to expand LTE and improve its painfully slow 3G network.

Bob Azzi, senior vice president of Sprint, is optimistic about the company’s continued progress saying “Today’s news moves us even further toward achieving that goal. We strive to deliver a top-notch network experience combined with winning devices and unlimited nationwide data plans – all of which are designed to support the ways our customers use their mobile devices today and tomorrow.”

Now Sprint just needs to expand into the greater Hartford area already, so I can be a happy camper. Are you guys seeing Sprint LTE light up in your area? If so, tell us about the performance.
