We’re proud to announce that Sprint CTO Dr. John Saw has been voted to the top of the FierceWireless 2018 Rising Stars list, receiving more than 33 percent of the more than 26,000 votes cast. 

It’s great to see both an independent third-party and industry watchers acknowledge John as an executive on the rise. He and his team have already driven many accomplishments improving the Sprint Network and driving new innovations. Today Sprint’s 4G LTE network is the most improved network in the U.S. with national average download speeds up 30.9 percent year-over-year, more than any other national carrier.1 

As FierceWireless notes, John and his team have big plans underway executing on Sprint’s largest network investment in years. We’re making steady progress on our deployment numbers for cell site upgrades and small cell installations, creating a better network experience for Sprint customers.
