Android CentralCricket, the regional no-contract carrier under the Leap Wireless parent company, has expanded its 4G LTE footprint to several new cities. Customers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Phoenix, Arizona; and Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Laredo, Corpus Christi and Brownsville-McAllen-Harlingen, Texas should see the service go live provided they're using one of Cricket's LTE handsets (currently only 2 available). Previously, Cricket's LTE footprint was only found in Tucson, Arizona and Las Vegas, Nevada.

This expansion completes what Cricket is calling its first phase of 4G LTE deployment, and the service now covers a potential of 21 million customers in the 11 markets.

Cricket rolls out several new 4G LTE markets


Yeah, being a sprint customer is really getting embarrassing. People at work just laugh at me while they sit and surf with att or Verizon lte and I can't even use 3g. Sprint is an absolute joke.
