Sprint upgrades its 3G network

Delivers faster data speeds that enable instant web access for news updates

By CBR Staff Writer

Wireless and wireline communications services provider Sprint is planning to upgrade its network capacity to deliver a better wireless experience for its customers.

Network Vision is planning to consolidate multiple network technologies into one network with the goal of increasing efficiency and enhancing network coverage, call quality and data speeds for customers.

Under the Network Vision programme, Sprint is making it easier for data to travel, so its smartphone customers can use their devices the way they were intended.

With the network improvements, voice service is enhanced and Sprint customers can expect to see better performance on their smartphones, mobile broadband connection cards and mobile hotspots when using the Sprint 3G network.

The performance improvements include: faster data speeds that enable instant web access for news updates, HD viewing and game-playing, quicker video downloads and clear video chats; better signal strength when making a call or using the web and fewer dropped calls for peace of mind when talking to friends, family or colleagues.

Sprint Network senior vice-president Bob Azzi said with the network investments Sprint made in 2011 and as the only national wireless carrier to offer unlimited data plans while on the Sprint network, Sprint continue to offer better value than Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T.

"But our commitment to an exceptional wireless experience doesn’t stop there. Sprint’s on an aggressive path to roll out Network Vision, and in collaboration with our partners, have already achieved many significant milestones that offer improved customer experience on the Sprint 3G network, and we expect to maintain and even accelerate this momentum in 2012," said Azzi.
