Sprint unveils Galaxy Nexus, LG Viper and Sierra Wireless Tri-Network Hotspot to strengthen 4G LTE presence

By Telecom Lead Team: Mobile service
provider major Sprint announced the initial group of devices that will operate
on its 4G LTE network: Galaxy Nexus, LG Viper 4G LTE and Sierra Wireless
Tri-Network Hotspot, 3G, 4G and 4G LTE mobile hotspot.

The introduction of these devices is a key
element of Network Vision, Sprint’s plan to consolidate multiple network
technologies into one seamless solution. With Network Vision, Sprint customers
can benefit from ultra-fast data speeds, improved 3G voice and data quality,
and stronger in-building signal penetration providing a more valuable wireless
experience and enhancing the value of current unlimited plans.

“The first three products that will run on
the Sprint 4G LTE network exemplify the cutting-edge technology our customers
can expect from Sprint as we progress with our 4G LTE rollout,” said Steve
Elfman, president of Network, Wholesale and Product Development for Sprint.

Galaxy Nexus packs several features and the
best of Google into a beautiful design while LG Viper 4G LTE continues Sprint’s
commitment to green devices that don’t sacrifice speed or technology. These
products combine with our unlimited data pricing plans to give Sprint customers
a powerful wireless experience.

On January 5, Sprint CEO Dan
Hesse announced that customers in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio are
expected to be among the first to benefit from 4G LTE and improved 3G coverage
in the first half of 2012.

Additional areas that will receive 3G
enhancements and 4G LTE expansion in 2012 will be announced later in the year.

Approximately 15 4G LTE devices are
currently on track to be launched in 2012 including handsets, tablets and data
cards. Additionally, 4G devices, including HTC EVO Design 4G, Samsung Epic 4G
Touch and Nexus S 4G, will continue to be sold in 2012.

The new 4G LTE smartphones will benefit
from Sprint Everything plans including the Everything Data Plan with Any
Mobile, Anytime offering unlimited data, texting and calling to and from any
mobile phone in America while on the Sprint Network. With Sprint’s unlimited
data plans, customers don’t have to worry about throttling or surprises on
their monthly bill from data overage charges like they might with tiered data
plans from other carriers.
