Forty more cities including Milwaukee and Salt Lake City now have LTE coverage with Sprint, bringing the carrier's network up to 340 markets.

However, Sprint seems to be focusing its attention on mid-size towns, leaving major metropolitan cities such as Phoenix, Denver, Detroit, and Washington D.C., still without coverage. San Francisco, Seattle, Pittsburgh and Minneapolis also are noticeably lacking the LTE love, putting the network far behind competitors, GigaOm said.

Meanwhile, Sprint continues to develop its next-generation LTE network Sprint Spark, which it plans to launch in about 100 U.S. cities over the next three years. Cities such as Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami and New York have Spark, which provides better access to online gaming, virtual reality, advanced cloud services and other applications, Sprint said.
