Sprint becoming an iPhone partner last year, did not make much sense since the carrier was lacking in LTE network. In fact, Sprint did get sidelined to some extent when Apple came out its LTE iPad for AT&T and Verizon. Now that Sprint has announced its decision to switch over with 4G LTE network across five cities initially, the prospects of Sprint look brighter than ever before. Moreover, the subscribers of Sprint will be better able to take advantage of Sprint penetration into the LTE arena, which will also enable them retrieve data at much faster speed. The cities in which Sprint is deciding to initially launch its LTE network are Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Kansas City, and San Antonio. Sprint has promised to increase its LTE handset offering spanning to 15-plus by year end.
The first LTE flavored iPhone is supposedly said to make its debut in October 2012. From this, and the attention Apple is rendering to LTE networks, it can be said that its partnership with Sprint is certainly not going to evaporate, and one can be sure to see some justification in the staggering $15 billion iPhone deal Sprint has entered with Apple. However, how effectively does Sprint attract new prospects of LTE iPhone from its competitors can be depicted with the passage of time. Verizon and AT&T who have been prominent players in the arena of LTE network for over two years, with over more than 300 markets, will be definitely a challenge for Sprint to overtake. Currently, Sprint flaunts an unlimited data plan, despite of its present drawback of lack of LTE coverage. Despite of the lacking, Sprint has never been out of competition. The launch of LTE network can thus be said to be extremely fruitful to Sprint’s present glory.
