Sprint’s committing to dates for launches of their 4G networks in key areas of the country, today. We know they’ve been testing 4G in several metropolitan areas in California and New York, but we couldn’t peg any sort of a date for the service to go live. Today, Reuters reports that Sprint will be launching service in New York starting November 1st – that’s just under two weeks from today. After that, Los Angeles will see a launch on December 1st, and San Francisco will finally see its launch before 2011 officially goes underway.
It wasn’t said if these would be the only cities seeing 4G between now and then, but that’s just me being hopeful in Wisconsin where we seem to be a low priority for any of these carriers. Woe is me. But if you live in any of the cities discussed today and are waiting for Sprint to step up their 4G coverage there, you have a lot to celebrate come this holiday season.
