Sprint has added new locations to its 4G LTE network, mainly in the San Francisco area, New York City and Washington, D.C as s part of their nationwide rollout of the 4G LTE network. The service seems to be great in some neighborhoods, while not so good in others.
The site deployment has started in San Francisco and coverage will become better as more sites are added. The sites being added are an addition to 58 locations announced by Sprint in January. More sites will be added later and announced once Sprint reaches good coverage .
According to Engadget’s testing team, the highest speed they could get was 16.7Mbps for download and 9.4Mbps for uploads. The service seems to vary location wise and it seems reliable in Potrero Hill and South of Market areas. Sprint is following a strategy where it’s launching the 4G LTE network in locations and then getting customer feedback. Although Sprint has not been able to completely follow its projected network launch area, but they seem to be doing well and should have the network updated before the end of 2013.
