The Sprint 4G LTE network fell behind the deployment schedule that the carrier originally hoped to see, but the Now Network is today launching in dozens of cities and towns. Sprint is today launching in 41 new markets throughout the country, raising its total number of markets to 151. The launches also push Sprint closer to its goal of reaching 200 million people by year's end.

Expansion of its 4G LTE network is a critical aspect of Sprint attracting new customers. The carrier reported a loss of 2 million subscribers after it shutdown its Nextel network. Having fast and reliable 4G service will be necessary to make Sprint a viable alternative to larger rivals AT&T and Verizon, as well as the increasingly competitive T-Mobile.
