Announced within an official Sprint press release earlier today, the wireless network provider has rolled out 4G LTE service in 70 new markets this month. While still lagging behind Verizon and AT&T in regards to total coverage within North America, the addition of major markets like San Diego, St. Louis and Orlando as well as many other areas will potentially help Sprint regain market share around the United States.
Speaking about the addition of the 70 new markets, Sprint chief network officer Bob Azzi said “In the growing number of markets where the upgrades are nearly complete, our customers are noticing. Re-engineering our entire network has been a big undertaking, but now it’s delivering tangible benefits to our customers.”
Azzi continued “With the announcement of Sprint Spark, the increasing availability of 4G LTE and the improvements we have made to our voice network, we’re full speed ahead for 2014.”
