Sprint’s high speed LTE network went live in four new markets today: Manhattan and Junction City, Kansas; Sedalia, Missouri; Baltimore, Maryland; and Gainesville, Georgia; as part of their Network Vision initiative.

Sprint subscribers in those areas should be seeing increased 4G speeds as well as enhanced 3G signal, performance, and theoretically call quality.

The turn-up comes about a month later than we’d previously expected it to be, but some other markets have been coming up a little earlier than expected.

It’s nice to see that Sprint remains committed to get the LTE technology out after the previous WiMAX network, which was widely-advertised but unfortunately not widely available.

If you’re in any of the markets that went live, let us know how it’s working for you and how good the coverage is. Some of the LTE markets that have been reported by Sprint as live had less than stellar coverage at go-time but have been slowly getting better day by day.
