Sprint’s 4G LTE now available in San Francisco
Getting tired of not being able to put your LTE-equipped device to the test? It must be quite frustrating for Sprint subscribers to see the carrier leaving out some big markets from its recent LTE rollouts. But for those who live in San Francisco, it looks like the 4G LTE wait is over.
As reported by the folks over at Engadget, San Francisco has finally been graced with Sprint’s LTE network presence — one that reaches a maximum download speed of 16.7Mbps and 9.4Mbps up, according to their testing.
To be more specific, the LTE switch has apparently been turned on in the Potrero Hill and South of Market neighborhoods, while those in the Mission District will have to look at their neighbors with envy for now.
Folks who reside in the San Francisco Bay Area have been enjoying Sprint’s LTE since August of last year, but the country’s third-largest carrier promised back in October that it’d be bringing 4G LTE to SF soon. It might have taken them four months, but at least it’s finally arrived.
So, are you seeing those 4G LTE signals yet in your place? Hit the comments below.
