Sprint customers across the New York Metropolitan Area can now experience faster, stronger, more reliable service than before with the availability of Sprint’s LTE Plus Network.

Since the beginning of the year, Sprint doubled the speed and capacity of more than 900 2.5GHz cell sites across the New York Metropolitan Area with the deployment of two-channel carrier aggregation. Carrier aggregation, a feature of LTE Plus, creates a wider lane that allows more network traffic to travel at higher rates, enabling Sprint to provide customers with even faster data speeds on capable devices.

Within the past six months, Sprint has added or upgraded service at several popular locations such as Rockefeller Center, the 9/11 Memorial, Jacob Javits Center, JFK International Airport, and The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. Sprint continues to lead with more stations on air to-date than any other carrier. Sprint is contracted to complete all seven phases of 279 underground stations in the New York City subway project. Sprint will be deploying 4G LTE to all underground stations and service will be ready for customers in 2017.

Sprint’s LTE Plus Network Is now available in New York City and 204 other markets across the country and takes advantage of Sprint’s rich triband spectrum portfolio and uses some of the world’s most advanced technologies in wireless.
