All aboard the 4G LTE train: passengers in 20 new markets will be hopping on board for Sprint’s 4G LTE network starting today.

The list doesn’t include many well-known cities, but Sprint has already hit much of those places with the signal, and making sure the surrounding smaller markets are covered is tantamount to building a network everyone wants to be on.

Here’s the list in full:

  • Bakersfield, CA
  • Bridgeport/Stamford/Norwalk, CT
  • El Centro, CA
  • Hot Springs, AR
  • Kenosha, WI
  • Lancaster, PA
  • Mason City, IA
  • Myrtle Beach, SC
  • Nogales, AZ
  • Ocean City, NJ
  • Omaha, NE
  • Peoria, IL
  • Provo/Orem, UT
  • Sarasota/Bradenton, FL
  • Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, PA
  • Shawnee, OK
  • Trenton/Ewing, NJ
  • Visalia/Porterville, CA
  • Willimantic, CT
  • Zanesville, OH

That brings the amount of cities up to 402 in all, and puts Sprint well on their way to their goal of covering 250 million people by the middle of the year. It’ll take a bit longer for all of these cities to get the latest Sprint Spark network upgrades, though, which brings faster and more reliable 4G LTE coverage on Sprint’s 700MHz spectrum.

To date, only 18 different markets have coverage, though Sprint is regularly adding more as time rolls on. As for today’s launches, be sure to fire up your 4G-capable phone to test out the new network if you’re in any of these markets.
