Sprint is Leading a Technology Revolution in the U.S. with Sprint 4G


Sprint 4G is still the only one of the top four carriers in the U.S. offering 4G, now in 62 markets covering over 80 million people, expected to cover up to 120 million people by the end of 2010. Cities still to see Sprint 4G this year include Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver and Miami. With Sprint 4G, you can access the most advanced wireless technology available from nearly a dozen 3G/4G devices including the Overdrive 3G/4G mobile hotspot and the only two award-winning 4G phones in the U.S. today: HTC EVO 4G or Samsung EPIC 4G,all designed to maximize your 4G experience. No other major national carrier – not AT&T, Not Verizon, not T-Mobile – can make these claims.

Sprint is leading a technology revolution with Sprint 4G, enhancing productivity and entertainment on the go:

  • When you download a full length feature film (like “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” or “Avatar”) onto your iPad or laptop (using Hulu or Netflix) it will take anywhere from 15 – 45 minutes to do this with a 3G connection. With Sprint 4G, it typically takes just several minutes.

  • When you need to urgently send a huge (let’s say 10 MB) file for business via your laptop or smartphone, it will take you 10-20 minutes using 3G, it typically takes just a couple of minutes using Sprint 4G.

  • When you need to video conference via your EVO 4G, EPIC 4G or on your laptop using a 4G connection, you can typically expect to experience a nearly seamless video experience in 4G, making remote video conferencing a realistic option. In 3G, it will often be choppy.

  • If you want to take a short video of your kid’s soccer game on your smartphone and send it to your spouse, it could take several minutes to send the file using 3G, it will typically take just seconds using Sprint 4G.

  • If you’re a passenger in a car or in a park and you’re in a hurry to download ‘The Girl Who Played with Fire’ onto your Nook e-reader or iPad, it can take up to 45 minutes using a 3G connection. Using the Sprint 4G network, it will typically take just a few minutes.

  • If you’re a business and you need to receive a high resolution video from a remote site you are monitoring, you will often get it delayed and in grainy quality using 3G, while you’ll typically get it instantly and in high-resolution using Sprint 4G. Transportation companies can access 4G speeds to work towards improving customer experience, help increase customer safety, support on-board marketing, monitor and manage fleet resources and enable wireless transactions. Home healthcare providers can implement higher-quality remote patient monitoring and faster patient data transfer. Public safety professionals can step up to another level in anytime-access to critical information, ability to document incidents, resource management and monitoring.

  • Sprint 4G in the home: Through a single connection, you can bypass your cable provider and stream HD movies from content distribution providers (such as Netflix, Amazon and Blockbuster) right to your TV; connect your Xbox 360 and game real-time with someone located across the globe; move pictures wirelessly from your camera to a digital picture frame and surf the Web on your laptop while streaming Pandora.
