Sprint will launch 4G LTE high-speed data in another 100 cities, including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Boston, in the “coming months,” the company announced today.

Sprint offers LTE in just 19 metropolitan areas in the U.S., including Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. (Check out Sprint’s coverage map here.) Verizon, on the other hand, now claims to cover 235 million Americans in 371 cities with its 4G LTE. AT&T has 60 active markets with 4G LTE but plans to have more than 100 total markets by the end of the year.

While Sprint was the first major U.S. wireless carrier to offer next-gen 4G data speeds over WiMAX, its WiMAX buildout was plagued with problems. It shifted gears to LTE with an “aggressive roll-out” last October, and it is now aiming have the majority of its LTE efforts completed by the end of 2013.
