The 4G LTE was launched in 49 markets including Atlanta, Houston and Baltimore, with implementation underway in hundreds of others. About 150 markets will see an official LTE launch in the coming months.

“With the network investments we made in 2012 and as the only national wireless carrier to offer truly unlimited 4G LTE data plans, we continue to offer better value than our competitors,” said Bob Azzi, senior vice-president-Network, Sprint. “But our commitment to an exceptional wireless experience doesn’t stop there. We are an aggressive path to complete the rollout of Network Vision, and we expect to accelerate this momentum in 2013.”
