Access to LTE networks and 4G technology is something that many people are keen to enjoy and benefit from, and with more and more providers either rolling out or getting ready to roll out advanced mobile broadband networks a rising number of consumers will be able to enjoy these benefits for both personal and business use.
It has recently been announced that the 4G LTE network rollout from Sprint is set to start in the early part of next year. LTE equipment is already being installed in preparation for the rollout according to Sprint officials and field tests have been carried out in some areas.
Sprint is planning to make the service available on a commercial basis by the end of the first quarter of 2012 or possibly in the early part of quarter two. However, it has not yet decided which areas the network will first be launched in next year.
It has been reported that the company will be unveiling its LTE network at a forthcoming event next week. It is also rumoured that Sprint could be getting the new iPhone 4s when it is released in October by Apple, which will provide a real boon for the company. Over the next five years or so the LTE rollout from Sprint is set to cost between four and five billion dollars.
