The release is expected to happen over "the coming months"

Only days before the iPhone 5's release, Sprint has announced that it's expanding its 4G LTE to more than 100 cities throughout 2012. 
 
Sprint started rolling out its 4G LTE service on July 15. Currently, Sprint offers 4G LTE connectivity in 19 cities in the United States, including Houston; Atlanta; Baltimore; Dallas; Athens, Georgia; Calhoun, Georgia; Carrollton, Georgia; Newnan, Georgia; Rome, Georgia; Fort Worth, Texas; Gainesville, Georgia; Granbury-Hood County, Texas; Huntsville, Texas; Kansas City, Montana/Kansas City, Kansas; Manhattan/Junction City, Kansas; San Antonio, Texas; Sedalia, Montana; Waco, Texas and St. Joseph, Montana. 
 
The new 4G LTE offerings will now spread further across the U.S., entering cities like Boston, Chicago and New Orleans. 
 
"We are committed to delivering a cutting-edge network as quickly as possible, one that provides a greater level of reliability and speed to our 3G and 4G customers," said Bob Azzi, senior vice president of Network for Sprint. "We know our customers depend on their mobile devices as their primary source of communication, business, connectivity and entertainment. We want to deliver a network that delivers mobile access, productivity and entertainment at a highly competitive price point."
 
Sprint's complete list of cities to receive the 4G LTE network in the coming months can be found here.
 
Sprint, which obtained the iPhone for the first time last fall when the iPhone 4S was released, could likely be preparing for the iPhone 5’s release in two days. The iPhone 5 is the first Apple smartphone to have 4G LTE connectivity.

Sprint stirring up shareholders again?

Have they cleared this with shareholders? I know Verizon had a backlash when they were rolling out new technology before competitors. They wanted their dividends instead of reinvesting the profits and expanding FiOS.

Some people assume the US has the latest tech available, but in terms of infrastructure, that's rarely true.

Wanting their dividends instead of spending it on FiOS turns out would've been a better use of money, considering the problems it ran in to.

At the very least, spending it elsewhere would've been wise.

Honestly, looking at how the stock price was performing before they started rolling out LTE... compared to now... I think the stockholders are happy with their 50% price increase.
