Sprint says its wireless network in the Kansas City area will speed up by Halloween.
The Overland Park-based carrier announced upgrades and demonstrated their impact in a suite at Kauffman Stadium before Wednesday’s Royals game. All area Sprint customers should expect to see benefits from Sprint’s use of technology it calls three-carrier aggregation being added at hundreds of cell sites this month and next, says John Saw, Sprint’s chief technology officer.
Sprint’s announcement comes after its larger rival Verizon announced its LTE Advanced network was running nationally. Verizon’s faster LTE network uses carrier aggregation techniques to combine blocks of spectrum.
