Last week, it was rumored that Sprint would be bringing 4G LTE to 21 new markets. It turns out that rumor was spot on, actually, as the company made the announcement earlier today. The list of new cities include known towns like Charlotte, Bloomington, Los Angeles, Memphis, Mankato, and more. Here’s the full list for your perusal:

  • Albemarle, N.C.
  • Bloomington, Ind.
  • Charlotte, N.C.
  • Contra Costa County, Calif.
  • Denison, Texas
  • Greeneville, Tenn.
  • Joplin, Mo.
  • Kerrville, Texas
  • Lafayette, Ind.
  • Lincolnton, N.C.
  • Los Angeles
  • Mankato/North Mankato, Minn.
  • Memphis, Tenn.
  • Norfolk/Virginia Beach/Newport News, Va.
  • Palm Bay, Fla.
  • Port St. Lucie, Fla.
  • Rochelle, Ill.
  • Salisbury, N.C.
  • Shelby, N.C.
  • Tullahoma, Tenn.
  • West Palm Beach, Fla.

Sprint is also announcing 34 new additional markets to its current list of 170. We’re not sure if all of these are expected to launch by the end of 2013, but Sprint says to expect many of them “in the coming months.” Sprint’s original goal was to get its 4G LTE network deployed to a vast majority of its current 3G coverage area by the end of this year, and expects upgrades to be complete sometime in 2014.

Sprint’s also banking on these upgrades to help fulfill the overall Network Vision project, one that 3G customers desperately need as Sprint’s slow network as of late hasn’t gone undocumented.
