Upgraded Sprint 4G LTE Network Sails into Boston
Today, Sprint is expanding 4G LTE service in the Bay State and bringing faster speeds for uploading photos, surfing the Web and streaming videos to customers in Boston and Framingham, Mass. Sprint continues to show significant progress in the buildout of its all-new 4G LTE network - reaching more customers every day. In addition to Boston and Framingham, today Sprint launched 4G LTE in Austin, Texas; Bryan/College Station, Texas; Columbia, Tenn.; Emporia, Kan.; Fort Wayne, Ind.; Gettysburg, Pa.; and Western Puerto Rico (including Aguadilla, Isabela, Cabo Rojo, Mayagüez).
"Now our customers can keep track of their favorite hockey, basketball and college sports teams using 4G LTE on their Sprint smartphones, tablets and mobile hotspots," said Karen Paletta, regional vice president-Consumer Sales, Sprint. "The demand for smartphones continues to grow, and a strong network is more important than ever for our wireless users." Additionally, Boston area customers can expect a better 3G experience thanks to continual upgrades being made in the area, resulting in clearer voice quality, more reliable in-building coverage and fewer dropped and blocked calls.
In Massachusetts, Sprint 4G LTE is also available to customers in Barnstable/Hyannis/Mid-Cape, New Bedford/Fall River, and Peabody. Customers will be able to use their smartphones - such as Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Note II or LG Optimus G - to share a picture of their favorite musical group or college football team or check the web for sports scores with greater speed. When you combine the power of 4G LTE with an Everything Data plan with Any Mobile, AnytimeSM, which includes unlimited Web, texting and calling to and from any mobile in America while on the Sprint Network, Sprint becomes the best choice in wireless.
Sprint's network buildout, known as Network Vision, not only delivers 4G LTE but also is expected to provide 3G customers better wireless signal strength, in-building coverage, and fewer dropped/blocked calls. These 3G improvements are already available to customers in many cities across the country, such as Baltimore, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C. All Sprint 3G customers in these areas, including the company's prepaid customers on Assurance Wireless, Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile can expect to see better coverage and improved network reliability and voice quality once the improvements come to their areas.
Sprint introduced its all-new 4G LTE network in July 2012 and now offers service in 58 marketsi.
