Sprint expanding 4G LTE to 28 more cities in coming months

Recently Sprint announced that they’ll be expanding 4G LTE into 28 new cities in the coming months. According to CNET, Sprint didn’t actually specify what “coming months” meant, and customers anxiously awaiting LTE could be waiting as many as six months. This puts them far behind carriers like Verizon that currently offer 4G LTE in 477 cities across the country. Right now Sprint only offers LTE in 49 cities and plan to have nearly 200 more areas covered with 4G LTE by the end of the year. Here is a list of the 28 latest markets:

Albany, Ga.; Anderson, S.C.; Bay City, Mich.; Branson, Mo.; Bremerton/Silverdale, Wash.; Columbus, Ga.; Columbus, Miss.; Decatur, Ala.; Florence/Muscle Shoals, Ala.; Gadsden, Ala.; Gaffney, S.C.; Gettysburg, Pa.; Glasgow, Ky.; Homosassa Springs, Fla.; Hot Springs, Ark.; Lake City, Fla.; Lake Havasu City/Kingman, Ariz.; Midland, Mich.; Nacogdoches, Texas; Opelousas/Eunice, La.; Oxford, Miss.; Paris, Texas; Pittsfield, Mass.; Saginaw, Mich.; Spartanburg, S.C.; The Villages, Fla.; Waycross, Ga.; Winona, Minn.
