STUART, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 15, 2008--Sprint (NYSE:S) customers in Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties can now enjoy the benefits of SprintSpeed(TM) from even more places. During 2007, Sprint added 470 new cells sites throughout Florida and 17 of those are along the Treasure Coast.

Sprint customers can take advantage of the recent improvements in the following communities:

  • Palm City
  • Jupiter Island
  • Ft. Pierce
  • Sebastian
  • Vero Beach
  • Indian River

Sprint offers customers the largest voice calling area, largest mobile broadband network and the world's fastest and largest push-to-talk network, which means customers can share pictures and video, download full-length CD-quality songs, send emails with large attachments, or connect instantly with the touch of a button with Nextel Direct Connect.

"Whether it's catching a conference call or just catching-up, customers can trust Sprint's robust, ever-growing network coverage to help them keep in touch with family, friends and co-workers," said Jaime Jones, area vice president for Florida.

Nationally during 2007, Sprint added more than 4,000 cell sites to the Nationwide Sprint Network and Nextel National Network. Both networks are currently performing at their best-ever levels, which means fewer blocked or dropped calls, translating to better connections for customers.
