Currently Being Moderated

“We are committed to delivering a cutting-edge network as quickly as possible, one that provides a greater level of reliability and speed to our 3G and 4G customers.” - Bob Azzi, senior vice president-Network, Sprint. 

 


Sprint 4G LTE service is expected to be available in the coming months in Chicago, Boston, New York and Los Angeles. And that’s not all. We expect to bring Sprint’s all-new network to more than 100 new cities during this period.

 

 

Sprint was the first national wireless carrier to introduce 4G on the WiMAX network in 2008 and began rolling out 4G LTE to customers this summer. Currently, Sprint offers the new 4G LTE service in 19 metropolitan areas, including Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and surrounding cities.

 

 

These efforts are part of the Sprint Network Vision project, which is expected to be largely completed by the end of 2013.

 

 

Wireless data

 


Today’s consumers have a ravenous appetite for mobile data. From apps to surfing the Web to checking email to watching videos, we all are using our smartphones for fun and getting things done.

Sprint offers advantages such as a strong line-up of phones and the value of our unlimited data for smartphones while on the Sprint network. With Sprint’s all-new 3G and 4G LTE networks, consumers value Truly Unlimited data because it’s simple and straightforward – no metering, no throttling, and no need to share data, which increases the likelihood of a surprise monthly bill because of overage charges.

 

 

“We know our customers depend on their mobile devices as their primary source of communication, business connectivity and entertainment,” said Bob Azzi, senior vice president-Network, Sprint.  “We want to deliver a network that delivers mobile access, productivity and entertainment at a highly competitive price point.”

 

 

Faster, better and more reliable

 


With Network Vision, customers can expect to benefit from an updated 3G network and new 4G LTE network, enabling expanded coverage, improved network reliability, better voice quality, and faster data speeds as the improvements are rolled out across the country.

 

 

As part of its overall network strategy, Sprint is also doing a complete overhaul of its 3G infrastructure so that customers can enjoy better wireless signal strength, in-building coverage, and fewer dropped/blocked calls. These enhancements are now available to customers in several markets across the country, with significant deployment in Baltimore, Boston and Washington, D.C., and will continue to improve in the weeks and months ahead.

 

Aggressive momentum

 


During the pre-launch phase, customers with capable 4G LTE devices may begin to see 4G LTE coverage in these areas and are welcome to use the network even before it officially launches. Sprint plans to announce commercial availability of 4G LTE in these cities in the coming months, at which point we expect coverage, performance and reliability to get even better.
