Sprint is a leader in introducing innovative products and services, running our business in a sustainable way and looking out for the interests of consumers. Our executives, experts and others will share information here about lessons we have learned and issues that are important to us.
Today Sprint, Qualcomm Technologies and SoftBank announced an agreement to jointly develop technologies for 5G. This includes developing the 3GPP 5G New Radio (NR) for our 2.5 GHz spectrum, which we anticipate will enable us to deploy our commercial 5G network in late 2019.
At Sprint we're working to make our traditional mobility architectures and software designs more streamlined, efficient, and scalable as we move to a virtualized environment. After four years of research and development with Intel Labs, we’re excited to unveil today our open source effort we call the Clean CUPS Core for Packet Optimization (C3PO).
With the ZTE MAX XL, Boost Mobile and Sprint expand the HPUE device portfolio, bringing an even better coverage experience to more customers.
G'day and Buenos Tardes from beautiful Barcelona where Gigabit Class LTE and Massive MIMO are moving from theory into real-life concepts and implementations at Mobile World Congress 2017. We’re on the ground for the biggest wireless event of the year showcasing these important stepping stones from LTE Plus to 5G on the Sprint network.
We’re excited to have achieved our best-ever performance in cities across the country, setting a new Sprint company record for highest number of Metro RootScore awards to-date. We’re pleased to rank #2 nationally in Call performance, rank #2 in a tie nationally for Text performance, and hold a competitive position in Overall performance. In addition we made significant progress as most improved in State RootScore awards, and we had the second-largest gain over first half 2016 testing by any carrier in Metro area testing.
Sprint’s Unlimited customers can be confident in our ability to keep meeting their demand for data now and in the future.
I recently heard a story about a Verizon customer that wanted to switch carriers after a big blow-up with their customer service folks. This customer didn’t end up switching because he was in one of Verizon’s “grandfathered” unlimited plans. They no longer offer unlimited data plans so he chose to stay in an old, overpriced one. AT&T is not much different as they only offer unlimited data plans if you sign up for DIRECTV® or U-verse® TV. No thank you!
