Sprint today announced the expansion of its 4G LTE network into 20 new markets in the United States. The company also revealed that it has reached more than 402 cities thanks to the recent launches, showing the company is picking up steam from the delayed roll-out that started in 2013. While I'm sure Sprint was not too excited about Chairman Masayoshi Son calling the network, and the entire US wireless industry, "horrible" last week, Sprint probably has more reason to be excited about the progress of LTE and Sprint Spark.

The following cities launched 4G LTE today:
- Bakersfield, California
- Bridgeport/Stamford/Norwalk, Connecticut
- El Centro, California
- Hot Springs, Arkansas
- Kenosha, Wisconsin
- Lancaster, Pennsylvania
- Mason City, Iowa
- Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
- Nogales, Arizona
- Ocean City, New Jersey
- Omaha, Nebraska
- Peoria, Illinois
- Provo/Orem, Utah
- Sarasota/Bradenton, Florida
- Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania
- Shawnee, Oklahoma
- Trenton/Ewing, New Jersey
- Visalia/Porterville, California
- Willimantic, Connecticut
- Zanesville, Ohio

Provo and Trenton also joined the short list of cities that already have Sprint Spark, which uses tri-band service to get faster speeds and more reliable coverage indoors. There are now 18 Spark cities, including: Austin, Texas; Baltimore; Chicago; Dallas; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Fort Worth, Texas; Houston; Jacksonville, Fla.; Kansas City, Kan./Mo.; Los Angeles; Miami; New York; Philadelphia; Provo, Utah; Salt Lake City; San Antonio; Tampa, Fla; and Trenton, N.J.
