Sprint takes a bite out the Big Apple with LTE Plus launch

18 Apr 2016

Sprint Corp has activated its two-channel carrier aggregation (CA) network in the New York Metropolitan Area, effectively doubling the speed and capacity on more than 900 2.5GHz cell sites across the five boroughs. The launch means that the carrier’s ‘LTE Plus’ network is now available in a total of 191 markets. Gunther Ottendorfer, Sprint’s chief operating officer (technology), commented: ‘There is no better proving ground for our network than New York. In the past few months we made tremendous improvements across the entire metropolitan area, and we’re committed to providing ‘the city that never sleeps’ with an exceptional wireless experience.’
