Sprint Is Ready For A 4G iPhone 5

We can't say if this is an intriguing PR move or a good opportunity to take a glimpse into Apple's future plans, but Sprint has made an announcement relating to the next iPhone.

Joe Euteneuer, Sprint Chief Financial Officer, let everybody know that in the following months the carrier will be ready to accommodate the upcoming iPhone on its 4G LTE networks.

No real confirmation about a deal with Apple has been declared on this matter, however. Sprint plans to deploy 4G LTE networks in six cities by this summer, and has also announced a subscriber base of almost 100 million customers in the US.

Sprint is expected top this mark very soon. "So I don't think we are really disadvantaged at all," pointed out Joe Euteneuer, hinting to the competition.

Major rivals Verizon and AT&T already have 4G LTE coverage across the country, and they will have no problems in implementing the fastest connection speed for the upcoming iPhone.

A future iPhone with support for 4G LTE is not a matter of intricate investigations and suppositions. After Apple released the 4G capable new iPad, the 4G sixth generation iPhone seems to be a sure bet.
