30 Mar 2012

Cross Wireless, doing business under the ‘Sprocket Wireless’ brand, has announced that it has enlisted French-US equipment vendor Alcatel-Lucent to roll out a network based on Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology. Headquartered in Warner, Oklahoma, and operated by long-time regional Cross Telephone, Cross Wireless intends to deploy the network in the counties of Muskogee, Pittsburg, Choctaw, McCurtain and McIntosh during the first half of 2012.

TeleGeography notes that Sprocket Wireless is the second firm to announce the launch of LTE services in the state of Oklahoma this week. Yesterday Panhandle Telephone Cooperative Inc (PTCI), which is headquartered in Guymon, Oklahoma, confirmed that it was poised to launch LTE services in rural Oklahoma under the ‘Bonfire’ brand.
