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.
