Sprint hasn’t come out and publicly announced a date for the hundred or so markets they’re planning to launch LTE in by the end of this year, but we may have word on a couple of very important markets. According to a leaked document received by Engadget Sprint is expected to light LTE up in Boston and Chicago next Friday, September 21st.
The document notes that optimal speeds and performance won’t be promised until Sprint makes it officially official, but users should be able to access the network during the test/trial period just as well as the Sprint engineers can. It’s the most we can ask for after the debacle that was Clear’s Wimax rollout. Let us know if you start to see 4G lighting up in these markets this time next week.
