Sprint races with AT&T and Verizon, ready for iPhone 5 getting 4G LTE feature if any

Standard

After the highly successful release of the new iPad, there have been rumors around about iPhone 5 also bearing the LTE. This new, although exciting to many, also came as an issue to few. Like, may be the mobile phone operators. After all, its not that to add up a LTE supporting service.

Sprint’s CFO Joe Euteneuer was quoted saying,

“Nonetheless, Euteneuer said Tuesday at an investor conference that Sprint’s Apple contract is similar to those of rivals AT&T and Verizon Wireless, and that the carrier isn’t being held to any 4G LTE coverage requirements. In comparison, the other two carriers have rolled out 4G LTE to large swaths of the country.”

Although the iPhone 5 having a LTE is just a rumor, in a competitive market where Sprint is constantly in a race with AT&T and Verizon, it is only natural that it would try to win.
