In our previous three installments, we’ve given somewhat detailed information about Sprint’s progress in rolling out 4G LTE across the nation in various markets. This has been thanks to inside information obtained by S4GRU, but as we start looking at more and more markets that reach farther and farther into the future, it’s become a bit more difficult to give exact information on the progress that Sprint will have made by a certain point in time.

Therefore, in this article, we’ll simply list the rest of the markets for which we currently have information, along with a projected timeframe that LTE and Network Vision will be announced. Keep in mind that this is unofficial, and things could change, but this should – at the very least – give you a better idea of when you might start seeing the 4G symbol occasionally light up on your HTC EVO 4G LTE.
