Kankakee, Illinois. If you live in that town a little while south of Chicago then you should be excited, Sprint’s first set of LTE towers have gone up and live in your town. Sprint is currently deploying “multi-modular functionality” that includes LTE signal being broadcast to their subscribers. This functionality will lead to wider coverage, stronger signal and less dropped calls for their customers Sprint says. They also say that LTE devices are on track for mid-2012, whether those devices will be phones or laptop modems will remain to be seen but let’s all hope it is the former.
