Why shall I Not Choose Sprint For iPhone 5 Over LTE Network

Many people are still deciding on which carrier to go for the iPhone 5 if they want to use the device over LTE network. Of course the first thing that comes to our mind while choosing is the network reliability, and also the transition from 3G to 4G. It is tough to say as of now that smaller service providers like Sprint and T-Mobile can really give competition to Verizon and AT&T.

Take the example of Sprint. In terms of LTE buildout it is behind Verizon and AT&T. It has LTE networks only in 19 cities, and most of the coverage is in Kansas, Texas and Georgia. If you are not traveling much in other areas apart from these three then iPhone 5 on Sprint is fine, but if you don’t live in these places or travel frequently to other places then the Sprint should not be your good choice.

Earlier in September the carrier had announced of rolling out LTE network in more than 100 cities, including Chicago, Boston, New York, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, and also cities in the Puerto Rico. Well, this may be good news to many, but does it satisfy the needs of all? What about Delaware?

For those people who live, work and visit Sprint’s LTE coverage areas the carrier is definitely to be considered as best possible alternative.

Let’s have a check to Verizon’s LTE coverage. At the end of second quarter its LTE covered 337 markets with 230 million potential customers, and this was more than combined building up of LTE by other carriers. By 2012 end Verizon is expecting to cover more than 400 markets and to service about 260 million people on its LTE network.

AT&T only serves about 80 million people in the U.S. with its LTE network and it is expected to add more 70 million people by 2012 end.

Sprint expects of serving more than 250 million customers by 2013 end with its LTE coverage. It is working hard to expand the network.

Well, as the title talks about iPhone 5, no one will wait for another one year to use the Apple’s latest smartphone. People look for buying iPhone 5 now. No point waiting even two months from now so why to sign a two years contract on Sprint’s LTE network. Isn’t it?

People would definitely pay more to Verizon and use iPhone 5 on its LTE network as it will be fastest and most reliable where you travel.
