Sprint Users Might Have to Wait a Little Longer for Their LTE Network

Earlier this year, Sprint had discussed plans for the rollout of their 4G LTE network, stating that it would be coming mid-summer. Now Sprint's CFO Joseph Euteneuer, speaking at an analyst conference, has stated its coming in the second half of 2012. It's a subtle, but potentially significant, change in language.

While it's still entirely possible that the LTE network could arrive over the summer, when companies start talking about the second half of the year, their products often end up arriving deep in the fall. Euteneuer has apparently stated the third quarter of the year is the most likely time for Sprint to roll out the network, which still puts it in a theoretical summer release window, but we'll see.
