4G, also known as LTE, is the flavor of the season. You hear it all the time in the news, interviews, reviews, and almost everywhere – where there is a talk concerning mobile phones or tablets. 4G stands for fourth generation of mobile data service.
Once more mobile phones and tablets come equipped with 4G capabilities, the network carriers will feel the heat, because of consumer demand. So they are trying to cover the entire country in least possible time. Sprint, one of the leading cellular network carriers in United States of America, has started to roll out its 4G services across the nation.
In a recent Rural Cellular Association meeting, Sprint showed a coverage map of its 4G service. The map does not reveal the current coverage, but the coverage we can expect in the year 2014. The Red areas in the map will be covered by Sprint, whereas the Blue will be covered by their roaming partners.
Looks like Sprint is trying to woo the rural subscribers, but I have serious doubts about the quality they will receive. 3G networks don’t work properly in most of the places, and these guys are bragging about 4G speeds.
