If you’re currently a Sprint customer living in Kansas with an LTE enabled device in your possession, I have some good news for you. No, the weather isn’t going to get any cooler but maybe some of Sprint’s all new, blazing fast 4G LTE will help take your mind off the heat for a little while. The #3 largest network in the US has just flipped the switch for LTE in Kansas City a little ahead of its July 15th rollout which is set to hit 5 cities across the US including: Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio.

Apparently, it’s not just Kansas City that’s getting now receiving 4G LTE. Surrounding areas like St. Joseph, Missouri and Manhattan, Kansas are also getting their taste of next-gen 4G LTE on the Now Network. One user even posted a SpeedTest after his device lit up with LTE (above), getting close to 12.7Mbps down and almost 5Mbps up. Those speeds are likely to decrease as more people connect to the new LTE network, but it’s still a nice upgrade from their aging 3G network.

Any of our readers experiencing LTE on Sprint? If you previously had LTE disabled on your device, now might be a good time to re-enable if you’re apart of one of the lucky 5 markets. Feel free to share your SpeedTests below and congrats!
