Excited for the new iPhone 5? On Sprint and already have the Galaxy S III or HTC EVO 4G LTE and want to know when you’ll actually be able to, you know, use that super fast 4G LTE?Well, your in luck as Sprint this week announced a huge list of cities slated to get their new, much faster 4G LTE network.
Sprint, unlike AT&T and Verizon, just launched their LTE network this year and as you’d expect, they cover nowhere near the amount of cities AT&T and Verizon cover. Currently you can find Sprint’s LTE network live in only a handful of cities like Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Kansas City, and San Antonio, as well as some areas around those cities. That all will change soon however, as Sprint has promised to bring their LTE network to more than 100 cities— including many major ones like New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago– in “the coming months.” Sprint also plans to have their whole network upgraded to 4G LTE by the end of next year.

Apple’s big iPhone event is still a few hours away (it officially kicks off at around 1 PM Eastern, 10 AM Pacific), but it looks like some of the days surprises are leaking out a bit early.
The internet is buzzing this morning as some searches on Apple’s site reveal links to pages for the upcoming iPhone 5, as well as for a new iPod Touch (with a new design and larger screen like the iPhone 5), Nano and iTunes 11. The links themselves aren’t live yet, so we still don’t know all the details on what’s new with these iDevices (though we have some guesses for what the new iPhone 5 will be). We do though now know one feature that will be in the new iPhone: 4G LTE. A quick search for LTE iPhone shows yet another not yet live link for LTE on the iPhone.
As always stay tuned, things here are just getting started. We’ll have more from Apple’s big event later today.
