Sprint's Now Network Powers Palm Pre Success
Posted: 12-Jun-2009 [Source: Sprint]

[Sprint sings its 3G network praises following launch of the Pre.]

Overland Park, Kan -- It’s one thing to sell Palm® Pre™ – the most anticipated consumer electronics device of the year – but according to customers and industry observers, it’s a much bigger thing to be able to unlock its complete potential thanks to Sprint’s nationwide 3G network.

After the fanfare of the Pre launch – breaking sales records and glowing headlines – customers are now taking advantage of the device – and something much less heralded – America’s most dependable 3G network.

Since 2006, Sprint has invested almost $17 billion in capital to continue improving and expanding network performance. Today, according to customers and third-party reports, Sprint’s networks have never been better. In its latest quarterly report, the company reported that both its CDMA and iDEN networks are performing at best-ever levels.

“Better network performance has been a major priority and a key part of the improvements we’ve made over the past year that have materially changed the customer experience with Sprint,” said Dan Hesse, president and chief executive officer of Sprint. “Palm Pre is the coming out party for the new Sprint – the perfect device to show how far our networks have come.”

The investment has paid dividends for Sprint. Today, Sprint operates America’s most dependable 3G network. 1

The Sprint 3G Network is faster in more places than AT&T’s 3G network, 2 and Sprint has more than 20 times the coverage of T-Mobile’s current 3G network, based on square miles.

No one has a larger voice calling area than Sprint. The Nationwide Sprint Network (inclusive of roaming) reaches more than 304 million people in the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, with a Sprint national calling plan that includes roaming.

And, continuing to lead the way in network performance, Sprint is the first and only national carrier to offer wireless 4G. Sprint 4G is available in Baltimore today and markets expected to launch in 2009 include Atlanta, Las Vegas, Chicago, Charlotte, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Honolulu, Philadelphia and Seattle. In 2010 Sprint 4G launch cities are expected to include New York, Boston, Washington D.C., Houston and the San Francisco Bay Area.

As accolades poured in about Palm Pre, so did recent comments about Sprint's network.
