Sprint seems to always come late to the party but when it does people notice. It first launched this past summer. Now Sprint LTE is live in 49 markets. That is a big jump in just over six months. They are still planning on several new launches for early 2013. Sprint says it plans to be in 150 new LTE launches in a months. We have no idea what the time line really is. Here is hoping that they cover the whole east coast by at least May. Sprint is the number 3 carrier in the USA. If it can get to 150 markets and keep the all you can eat pricing it has in place; that would help it fight rivals Verizon and AT&T.
