Travel. School. Business. Play. Even Skateboarding! Sprint Connected Device Technology, Powered By the Now Network, Is Impacting the Everyday Lives of Americans Everywhere...



Shredding the airwaves...Sprint's Now Network powers the electronic signage (provided by ICG) at the ultra popular skateboarding event, the Maloof Cup.

You may not realize it. But Sprint’s Now Network is impacting many parts of your life…in many ways you didn’t think possible.

Sprint’s efforts in Machine-To-Machine (M2M) technologies – which means, using wireless and wireline technologies to make devices “talk to each other” directly – have been affecting the way people play, the way businesses deliver for customers and even the way your doctor utilizes the most modern technologies to keep you healthy.

It could be your utility meter sending your usage information to the electric company’s billing database. It could be your e-reader downloading a book from a central bookstore. It could be a digital signboard updating its message from a laptop at the advertising agency. It’s literally that broad. And there’s a reason why Sprint is the most trusted wireless name in business operations. Our partner companies trust the Now Network’s speed, power and reliability to keep their operations running smooth to make your life easier. And we’ve only just begun…the possibilities are endless…but look what we’ve done already.
