Sprint Announces LTE Rollout Plans in 4 Cities (1/6/12)
Friday, January 06, 2012 | Comments

Sprint announced that customers in Dallas, Atlanta, Houston and San Antonio are expected to be among the first to have 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) and improved 3G coverage in the first half of 2012.

The launch of these metropolitan areas marks the next step in the company’s overall network strategy, also known as Network Vision. Sprint customers can expect to enjoy ultra-fast data speeds, improved 3G voice and data quality, and stronger in-building signal penetration providing a more reliable wireless experience, a company statement said.

“Within the first half of 2012, Sprint customers should experience first-hand the wide-reaching improvements we have made in terms of boosting voice and data quality,” said Bob Azzi, Sprint senior vice president.

Sprint’s Network Vision platform involves the deployment of multimode base stations across many of Sprint’s cell sites throughout the country. As base stations are deployed, customers will notice immediate improvements in voice quality, signal density and data speeds. The first completed deployment of a multimode base station was in Branchburg, N.J., in December. As additional areas receive 3G enhancements and 4G LTE service, announcements will be made.

Another component of Sprint’s network strategy has been the deployment of Sprint Direct Connect on the CDMA network. The first new push-to-talk (PTT) CDMA devices launched in September, and more CDMA PTT devices will be announced in the coming months.
