Sprint may be delivering LTE to Boston and Chicago next Friday


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.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  12. I’ve had it with Sprint. I got the HTC Evo 4G promising 4G speed since it came out and for the past several months I’ve been totally frustrated with their 3G speeds, because for more than two years I have used 4G no more than the fingers of my hands. I’m waiting for the iPhone 5 to come out and will compare it with the competition. I might stay with HTC if I see a better One series phone, or I might gi for the GS3 if not the iPhone. One thing is for sure, the moment I find a replacement, Im definitely leaving Sprint!

    1. Amen! Their 3g speed are ridiculous! Just waiting for the next nexus comes out for t-Mobile… I’m sorry sprint
