Sprint are doing all they can to offer greater 4G coverage for owners of the Samsung Epic and HTC EVO, so have announced that Clearwire will extend to New York (NYC), Los Angeles (LA) and San Francisco on November 1, December 1 and the end of December respectively.
We cannot understand why Clearwire and Sprint have made these areas wait so long, as this is where a host of wealthy people live and spend huge amounts of money on the latest tech. However, according to an article on Reuters, these areas are seen to be a tough market to break as they have high demand on carrier’s networks.
As more 4G devices come to the market Clearwire and Sprint will face the same issues that AT&T has suffered with its 3G coverage. However, with continued investment they hope to be able to offer a greater service in the hope of gaining an edge of their rivals.
Although Sprint is just the fourth largest carrier in the U.S, it is well ahead with 4G technology than the likes of AT&T. However, Verizon is pushing ahead with its program, with 38 cities being connected to their LTE service by the end of the year. Do you think that Sprint and Clearwire will be able to stay ahead of AT&T with 4G coverage?
