[Cricket announces availability of nationwide 3G data coverage available for user of the Android-enabled Sanyo ZIO by Kyocera and Huawei Ascend along with the BlackBerry Curve 8530.]

San Diego -- Cricket Communications Inc., a leading provider of innovative and value-driven wireless services and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Leap Wireless International, Inc., today announced the availability of nationwide 3G data coverage. This nationwide 3G capability will initially be available for users of the two Android Smartphones offered by Cricket: the Sanyo ZIO by Kyocera and the just-announced Huawei Ascend, and the Blackberry Curve 8530. Cricket has significantly expanded its 3G data capabilities through a roaming arrangement announced in August, which enables Cricket to now offer its Smartphone customers nationwide 3G coverage to complement the nationwide talk and text service it currently offers.

“We are pleased to offer nationwide 3G data coverage. It’s a significant step in our efforts to bring exciting new devices and capabilities to our customer and become the best provider of value-driven 3G services in the prepaid wireless industry,” said Doug Hutcheson, president and chief executive officer of Leap. “Data is increasingly important, particularly as the new Smartphones we’ve introduced gain popularity across our customer base. We expect our ability to offer high-speed data services across the United States will expand our appeal to potential customers and provide a better customer experience.”

Starting today new Cricket customers can take advantage of nationwide 3G coverage when using their ZIO and Ascend Android Smartphones and Blackberry Curve 8530. The roaming agreement that enables Cricket’s expanded coverage is the first major commercial 3G data roaming agreement in the United States and expands Cricket 3G data network from 92 million potential customers (POPS) to cover approximately 280 million POPS.
