Sprint’s Network Gets Even Better
Galaxy Note8 is an HPUE-enabled (High Performance User Equipment) smartphone. HPUE makes the Sprint network experience even better with increased coverage, more capacity and faster speeds on capable devices. HPUE-enabled smartphones are designed to give customers a better overall experience with streaming videos, mobile gaming and other online apps and services. HPUE can extend Sprint’s 2.5GHz coverage by up to 30 percent to nearly match its midband 1.9GHz spectrum performance, including indoors where the majority of wireless traffic is generated.
With an average of 204MHz of spectrum and more than 160MHz of 2.5GHz spectrum in the top 100 U.S. markets, Sprint has more spectrum than any other carrier across the nation, allowing Sprint to keep adding the capacity and speed needed to serve customers’ increasing demand for unlimited data.
