Sprint continues to expand its coverage with the availability of its super-fast LTE Plus Network in 204 markets, including newly added markets such as New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Honolulu, and San Juan, Puerto Rico. In addition, total Sprint LTE coverage now reaches nearly 300 million people with LTE roaming, with approximately 70 percent covered by Sprint’s 2.5 GHz spectrum.

As coverage has improved, so has Sprint’s network reliability. The Sprint LTE Plus Network takes advantage of the company’s rich tri-band spectrum portfolio, and uses some of the world’s most advanced technologies in wireless such as carrier aggregation and antenna beamforming. Two-channel carrier aggregation, deployed on high-traffic 2.5 GHz cell sites, doubles speed and capacity offering peak speeds of more than 100 Mbps on capable devices. With three-channel carrier aggregation, currently in lab testing, customers can expect peak speeds of more than 200 Mbps on capable devices.

“Customers consistently tell us how much they value good coverage and reliable service. And we know that data speeds are important to keep up with growing demand. We’re delivering on all fronts with a network that is performing at best-ever levels,” said, Dr. John Saw, Sprint CTO.
