Sprint's 4G LTE network grows by another six markets.

Sprint announced 4G LTE coverage today in six new areas, bringing the total to 49 markets.

Effective immediately, subscribers in parts of Indiana, Pennsylvania, and California will find the faster data speeds awaiting them.

Reaching 49 markets in total, Indianapolis/Carmel, Ind.; Santa Rosa/Petaluma, Calif.; Vallejo/Fairfield, Calif.; York/Hanover, Pa.; and Franklin County, Pa. are the newest members of the club. Parts of southern Puerto Rico, including Ponce, Coamo, and Guayama are also seeing 4G LTE coverage today. In addition to these new cities, Sprint is also celebrating expanded LTE coverage in Chicago.

After having just launched the 4G LTE network in July, Sprint has played catch-up to Verizon and AT&T, but it's still well behind its rivals.

Big Red's footprint now reaches more than 440 markets, whereas AT&T eclipsed the 125 market milestone just today.

Sprint's 4G coverage will continue to steadily grow, though the carrier has yet to cover some major urban centers.
