Sprint’s 4G LTE network is set to launch in five U.S. cities on July 15, 2012, according to The Verge.

Though Sprint has been an iPhone carrier for a while now, their lack of an LTE network meant that when the new 4G iPad launched earlier this year, support for super-fast cellular downloads was included for just AT&T and Verizon.

However, this could soon be set to change: Sprint has recently announced that it plans to roll-out LTE support in  Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Kansas City and San Antonio on July 15.

As outlined in a press release from Sprint that recently hit the Web:

With the launch on July 15, Sprint will have debuted 4G LTE to millions of people in five major metropolitan areas with more market launches in 2012 to be announced later this year. By the end of 2013, Sprint expects to have largely completed the build out of its all-new 4G LTE nationwide network – with an enhanced 3G network – covering 250 million people across the United States.

This is good news for Sprint customers, who’ve been thus far unable to take advantage of 4G speeds on their iDevice with their favorite carrier.
