Sprint 4G FD-LTE Centered around Texas

Sprint plans to make Texas the highlight state for their new 4G FD-LTE network set to go live in the mid part of 2012. Sprint CEO Dan Hesse said they plan to launch four major markets by mid-year and three of them will be in Texas. To be exact the markets will be Dallas, Houston and San Antonio with the fourth market to go live in Atlanta, GA.

The first 4G FD-LTE devices available will be the Galaxy Nexus LTE by Samsung, Viper smartphones by LG Electronics and a "tri-network" (3G/WiMAX/LTE) hotspot made by Sierra Wireless. Sprint hope to complete the majority of their 4G FD-LTE roll out by the end of 2013 and then plans to start on LTE-Advanced.
