Sprint reminds us that it currently has LTE turned on it 24 metro areas and expects to have its LTE network rolled out by the end of 2013. Sprint also this week confirmed it's talking with Japan's SoftBank about a possible "substantial investment," meaning we could see some major ownership moves should any deal be reached.
