Sprint's 4G network is already surprisingly widespread. I've taken two cross-country trips in the last month and been able to take advantage of this next-gen network on my Evo in many different places. From California to Texas to Oregon, high speed wireless Internet has allowed me to work from the road and coffee shops all o'er the land. Now, SlashGear reports that this 4G network has just seen another lurch forward.

Modesto and Stockton, California now benefit from increased speeds. As do Jacksonville, Florida and Wilmington, Delaware. Grand Rapids, Michigan rolls in to bring the total number of 4G cities up to 48. In case you've been living under a rock, 4G promises speeds as much as ten times greater than 3G.

As a caveat; real users are unlikely to ever see speeds that high. In practice, 4G is usually only 3-4 times faster than 3G. This is still a huge improvement, but not nearly so much of one as Sprint would like to claim. That said, I haven't ever regretted paying the additional fee for 4G. Three times as fast is still three times as fast.
