Sprint Nextel Corp (S) is expanding its 4G LTE network to 15 cities including Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City and San Antonio, as well as surrounding communities.
“Sprint and our vendors have been deploying Network Vision sites all across the country for the last several months and we are thrilled to deliver our new network to our customers today in and around Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, San Antonio and Waco,” said Bob Azzi, senior vice president of Sprint’s Network department. “This new network is performing extremely well and customers should find it consistent, reliable and really fast.”
The Overland Park-based company plans to launch additional 4G LTE markets in the second half of 2012, the locations of which it will announce later this year. By the end of 2013, Sprint expects to have largely completed the building of its all-new 4G LTE nationwide network – with an all-new enhanced 3G network – covering 250 million people across the United States.
