Sprint expands 4G coverage, takes a stab at its competitors

Sprint is on an ambitious plan to be the dominate 4G provider in the USA, and today has announced more cities that will be covered by its WiMax blanket.  Neowin got its hands on already with Sprint's 4G service and it’s a solid offering that many on the go users should be excited about.

The upcoming cities that were announced today include “Cincinnati, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Miami, Pittsburgh, Salt Lake City and St. Louis. Earlier this year Sprint announced that it planned to launch 4G in Boston, Denver, Kansas City, Houston, Minneapolis, New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., in 2010.”

Sprint is also not holding back on calling out their competitors either.  They take jabs at AT&T and Verizon who currently do not have any 4G deployments but still tout that they are testing their new 4G networks based on LTE.

And unlike ‘concepts’ and ‘lab tests’ from other wireless companies, Sprint is the first national wireless carrier to actually test, launch and market 4G technology. The strength of Sprint 4G lies in its all-IP backbone, common architecture and 4G spectrum depth, which give the company considerable flexibility to ensure that customers have a top mobile experience and the most advanced 4G services available well into the future.”

Regardless of your opinion of Sprint, one thing for sure is that they are racing to cover as much of the USA with its WiMax service before their competitors even get off the ground.  It’s clear that Sprint is basing its future on their high speed data network, but in a world measured by speed, it might be a safe bet.
