Sprint announces handful of new LTE cities

Sprint has promised they they will have quite a few new LTE areas that will go live "in coming months." They include:

  • Minneapolis/St. Paul Minnesota
  • Oakland/Fremont/Hayward, California
  • Key West, Florida
  • Fort Smith, Arkansas
  • Michigan City/La Porte, Indiana
  • Bloomington, Indiana
  • Eau Claire, Wisconsin
  • Arrdmore, Oklahoma
  • McAllen/Edinburg/Mission, Texas

Sprint's biggest issue right now is expanding coverage, so it's good to see they've got some new markets lined up. I'm curious to see how that U.S. Cellular acquisition will improve their coverage. Any lucky Sprint customers in these areas? How about those of you on other carriers - is Sprint LTE availability an attraction at all? Sprint customers elsewhere, how many of you are still waiting for LTE?
