Sprint 4G Comes To New York & Tampa (Officially)

I’ve written before about Sprint’s 4G network coming to New York City. And we even covered the news when Sprint 4G was being tested in New York City back in August. Well today, the rumors and small snippets of news comes to an end. Sprint has made their official announcement that their 4G network has finally arrived in New York City.

New York City is a huge market for Sprint’s 4G network to cover due to the population, data devices, and wide spread reach that people in New York have regarding telling other people about Sprint’s 4G network.

The question now is, when will Verizon start flexing their 4G network muscles – and AT&T as well – and start taking a chunk out of Sprint’s aggressive expansion of their 4G network throughout the Unites States.
