Announced on the official Sprint Community blog earlier today, the wireless service provider has expanded 4G LTE service into eleven new areas around the country today. This brings Sprint’s 4G LTE expansion into a total of  forty three markets and the company plans to offer 4G LTE service in more than eighty additional markets in the future. Areas included in the most recent expansion include Anderson, Muncie, and South Bend / Mishawaka, Indiana; Salina, Kansas; Peabody, Massachusetts  Harrisburg, Carlisle, and Hershey, Pennsylvania; Hagerstown, Maryland; Winchester, Harrisonburg, Clarke County and Shenandoah County, Virginia; Martinsburg and Jefferson County, West Virginia.

Whether someone uses 4G LTE for personal or professional needs, they will find that Sprint’s new 4G LTE network is performing extremely well. Customers should find it consistent, reliable and fast.”

According to Sprint, the upgrade to 4G LTE should provide customers with a reduced amount of dropped calls, significantly improved coverage within buildings as well as increased signal strength around the city when accessing wireless data. 

Earlier this month, Sprint also expanded 4G LTE service in areas such as Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota as well as Oakland, California and Key West, Florida. Getting a late start during July 2012, Sprint’s rollout of 4G LTE service is currently lagging behind both AT&T and Verizon in regards to nationwide coverage.

According to AT&T, the company recently surpassed 100 cities within the United States and plans to reach approximately 300 million people by the end of 2014. However, Verizon is currently leading the pack with an aggressive push into 440 markets already. Since Verizon started pushing out 4G LTE service during late 2010, the company expects to finish up the entire 4G LTE expansion by mid-2013.
