Sprint’s 4G LTE Showing Early Signs of Life in Boston

by Mark Hearn | August 9, 2012August 9, 2012 5:00 pm PST

A Sprint customer in the Boston area managed to gain access to the carrier’s new LTE services. This lucky individual noticed that his phone was connected to Sprint’s LTE network after applying a Mobile Station ID (MSID) update. Pictured above are screenshots of his HTC EVO 4G LTE, which is said to be pulling download speeds of around 6Mbps and uploads speeds of 8Mbps.

Recently, some Sprint customers in the San Francisco Bay Area were able connect to the carrier’s LTE, but this was later revealed to be a network test and not the early rollout that people were hoping for. This unannounced LTE coverage leads us to believe that Sprint is conducting similar testing in Boston.

Sprint’s LTE is currently listed as available in 15 different markets across Texas, Georgia, Kansas and Missouri. If you are a Sprint customer receiving LTE services outside of these aforementioned areas, we’d love to hear from you via our comments below.
