Telecom Lead America:
Sprint will launch 4G LTE services in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City
and San Antonio on July 15.
Sprint customers will benefit from an all-new, nationwide 3G
and 4G LTE network through the Network Vision program.
Sprint CEO Dan Hesse is spearheading the Network Vision
The new network provides significant enhancements to Sprint
3G service. Customers will experience better signal strength, fewer
dropped/blocked calls, faster data speeds, expanded coverage and better overall
performance as the improvements roll out across the country.
“The performance of both the 4G LTE and improved 3G networks
are exceeding our expectations and we are pleased with the progress of the
entire Network Vision program,” said Hesse.
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.
