Sprint CTO Says iPhone With LTE Could Be Offered By Sprint Soon

Posted on Mar 28 2012 - 7:28am by Editorial Staff

The Dow Jones reports that Sprint CFO Joe Euteneuer said today at an investor conference that the company is free to offer a potential future Apple iPhone using 4G LTE, though he didn’t say explicitly whether Apple had such an iPhone planned. The carrier plans to introduce the 4G LTE network in only six cities by midyear.

“If you make the assumption that they launch a device at a similar time that they did last year, you’re basically done with the major markets” on Sprint’s 4G LTE buildout, Euteneuer said, noting the carrier plans to initially cover around 100 million Americans. “So I don’t think we are really disadvantaged at all.”
