Sprint on Thursday revealed the areas that it hopes to blanketed with its new 4G LTE network by 2014. The map, revealed during the RCA Expo and caught by PCMag’s Sascha Segan, shows a large percentage of the east coast and mid-west with coverage, while the rest of the country remains a bit spotty. However, Sprint also said that the blue areas in the picture above will be covered through roaming partnerships with other carriers. Sprint plans to have four 4G LTE markets live by the middle of this year, so it’s going to have to move quickly to achieve its goals by 2014.
A Sprint executive also said Thursday that the carrier will no longer launch new WiMAX devices as it focuses on its 4G LTE network. The carrier has promised 14 LTE products by the end of the year. It has already confirmed that it will offer the Galaxy Nexus and we expect it to announce the EVO One during a press event in New York City next week.
