Sprint has launched LTE in Baltimore; Gainesville, Ga.; Manhattan/Junction City, Kan.; and Sedalia, Mo. Sprint said in July that it would launch four new markets for Labor Day in the U.S. The operator originally said that Sherman-Denison, Texas, would be one of the new markets to go live but appears to have swapped it out for Sedalia instead.
Sprint is also dropping hints about where it might go next with LTE. It says that customers in Boston and Washington are already seeing the benefits of improved 3G service in their areas. This typically means that Sprint is busy deploying its "Network Vision" 3G and 4G upgrades in that area.
This is how Sprint's 4G LTE network looks today:

Why this matters Sprint appears to be moving toward launching LTE in more big cities in the U.S. As well as upgrades in Boston and the capital, 4G test signals have been recently seen in the Bay Area.
