Sprint 4G LTE Network Expands into Fort Wayne, Ind.

Sprint today announced that it is expanding 4G LTE in the Hoosier state - launching service in Fort Wayne, Ind. to deliver faster speeds for uploading photos, surfing the Web and streaming videos. Sprintcontinues to show significant progress in the buildout of its all-new 4G LTE network - reaching more customers every day. In addition to Fort Wayne, today Sprint launched 4G LTE in Austin, Texas; Boston; Bryan/College Station, Texas; Columbia, Tenn.; Emporia, Kan.; Framingham, Mass.; Gettysburg, Pa.; and Western Puerto Rico (including Aguadilla, Isabela, Cabo Rojo, Mayagüez).

"Now even more Hoosiers can experience 4G LTE on their smartphones, tablets and wireless hotspots," said Kevin Gleason, regional vice president-Consumer Sales, Sprint. "The demand for smartphones continues to increase and a strong network is more important than ever for residents of the Fort Wayne area. Sprint 4G LTE will increase the speed for streaming and downloading music as well as sending emails and videos to friends and relatives."

In Indiana, Sprint also offers 4G LTE to customers in Anderson, Gary, Indianapolis/Carmel, Muncie and South Bend/Mishawaka. Customers will be able to use their smartphones - such asSamsung 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 several cities across the country, such as Baltimore, Boston, 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 markets1.
