Why Doesn’t New York City Have 4G?

Where’s the 4G coverage in New York?

I just had someone post a comment on one of the articles I wrote about Sprint’s 4G coverage.

The question was this:

“are these right there should new york come on”

And I thought – you know what… great question!

Why in the world has Sprint left out the biggest city in the United States from their 4G coverage?

Is it because of New York politics?

Does Sprint not have enough resources to move into a market like New York?

There’s has to be something that is keeping them from covering New York in 4G.

But yet cities like this DO get 4G coverage:

  • Lancaster, Pennsylvania
  • Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
  • Reading, Pennsylvania

I mean really… Reading, PA gets it but New York City is left out?

There’s got to be something more going on here that Spring isn’t telling us.

Any thoughts?
