Sprint’s 4G LTE coverage is now available in 185 markets across the country, and Sprint is continuing its rollout this fall.
4G LTE offers data up to 10 times faster than 3G, stronger signals (including indoors), and fewer dropped calls. It’s available thanks to new equipment installed in Sprint’s cell towers.
July saw 4G LTE landing in the Bronx and Brooklyn in New York City, with plans to expand officially to Manhattan, Staten Island, and Queens in the coming months. On top of that, Transit Wireless and Sprint are working together to bring Sprint voice and data to the subway, starting with 36 stations in midtown and Chelsea. Sprint is also working with ExteNet to provide better 3G and 4G LTE coverage to the top floors of the Empire State Building, where wireless reception can be spotty.
