Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S) appears to be planning to launch 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) services in several cities in the New York State as part of Network Vision, its 4G update program.

"LTE will be in a few N.Y. cities in the coming months," a customer care representative told a customer via Sprint's Twitter account Tuesday night.

Sprint had previously named New York City as one of the 115 cities in the operator's existing 3G footprint where LTE is getting installed. The operator has not yet given a specific time line for launches other than saying they will happen in the "coming months."

Why this matters
With Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) CEO boasting about how rivals cannot match his company's reach with 441 LTE markets, the heat is on for AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) and Sprint. AT&T currently has 109 LTE markets up and Sprint has 43.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
