Overview

Sprint offers wireless and wireline voice and data services to subscribers in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and in more than 200 global destinations. In addition to the corporate brand, retail brands include Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile and Assurance Wireless.

Sprint is widely recognized for developing, engineering and deploying innovative technologies, such as the first wireless 4G service from a national carrier in the United States; instant national and international push-to-talk capabilities; and a global Tier 1 internet backbone.

Sprint has an improved network today and is investing in its Next-Gen Network to make it even better. Using a mix of traditional towers, innovative small cells like Sprint Magic Box, and Massive MIMO technology, the company is increasing coverage, reliability and speed across its 4G LTE nationwide network.

Starting with soft launches this fall and expansion in the spring, Sprint is also adding Voice Over LTE (VoLTE).

And Sprint will use its spectrum advantage to launch the first mobile 5G network and smartphone in the U.S. in the first half of 2019. Initial 5G markets are Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix and Washington, D.C.

Sprint 5G will enable incredible new connections to people and things, services and opportunities that will allow customers to live a better life — on a network built for unlimited.

Recent reports from Ookla indicate that Sprint's 87 percent increase in year-over-year national average download speeds is the highest among major carriers. Plus, Sprint has the fastest average downloads in 100 cities — more than AT&T!

Sprint's unique and innovative service plans include “Unlimited for All” — a value proposition that allows customers to design plans to fit their lifestyles. Offerings include unlimited talk, text and data and various additional features, such as HD streaming, mobile hotspot, Hulu, Tidal and Global Roaming.

Because of these and other initiatives, including a digital-first strategy to increase sales and improve the customer experience, Sprint continues to add customers in its postpaid, prepaid and Sprint Business segments.
