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.

I live in DFW a "launch" market and Sprint still does not have LTE working here.

Seems like they should focus on actually getting LTE to work in the markets they claim to already have it working.

Sprint as a whole is just a huge FAIL. I have been with them for the last 3 years because with a family of 4 they have the cheapest smartphone plans (with unlimited data).

My wife jumped on a SGIII and was super excited to get LTE. To this day LTE does not work except 1% of the time and as soon as you see the connection and try to do something it drops back to 3G immediately.

I was going to say the exact same thing, except the part about the wife getting the S3. I love my EVOLTE, but not having a decent network to use it on is maddening. Sure, find a hotspot and you are gold, but why lie to their customers and tell them they have a working 4G network when they are still testing it. I've been with Sprint for 13+ years. I may not make it to 14 if they don't actually get their network working.

LTE is working fine here for me in DFW.

Got this at a stop light the other day:

Coverage needs improvement, for sure, but on the drive in every day I get more of that.
