Significant network enhancements part of a more than $56 million statewide investment, adding 56 wireless sites

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sprint Nextel (NYSE:S - News) announced today it added 56 wireless cell sites to its Nationwide Sprint PCS Network(SM) and Nextel National Network(SM) in Connecticut with a total investment of more than $56 million statewide in 2006.

This network investment includes:

  • more than $23 million in northern Connecticut and
  • nearly $33 million in southern Connecticut.

With this investment, Sprint further increased network coverage and capacity in Connecticut. Sprint also extended and enhanced its mobile broadband services, and in November, began deploying EV-DO Rev. A statewide.

"Sprint continues to make significant investments in its wireless networks in Connecticut and throughout the country," said Maureen Link, area vice president for Sprint's New York Metro Area. "Customer satisfaction and network quality are two of Sprint's top priorities as we further strengthen our powerful networks where our customers live, work, play and travel."

In 2006, Sprint added more than 3,400 cell sites across the country to strengthen performance in both of its wireless networks. This year, the company expects to add more than 4,000 cell sites.

Sprint spent more than $7 billion in capital expenditures in 2006, most of which was invested to enhance its wireless and wireline networks nationwide. Across the country, thousands of markets - large and small - received the benefit of this major investment. This year, Sprint will invest nearly $7 billion to further enhance its powerful networks and expand mobile broadband coverage.

The Sprint Mobile Broadband Network and EVDO Rev. A

Sprint offers the largest wireless broadband network of any carrier through the Sprint Mobile Broadband Network, which reaches more than 209 million people across the country and covers more than 10,000 cities and 1,000 airports.

In many major cities, Sprint has upgraded the Sprint Mobile Broadband Network with higher-speed EV-DO (Evolution - Data Optimized) Revision A technology. Sprint's industry-leading EV-DO Rev. A coverage now reaches more than 109 million people and covers 4,600 cities and 378 airports. With EV-DO Rev. A, users should experience significantly faster average data upload speeds of 350 to 500 kbps (compared with 50-70 kbps on current EV-DO networks). Average download speeds should increase to 600 kbps to 1.4 mbps (from 400-700 kbps). By third quarter 2007, the Sprint Mobile Broadband Network is expected to be completely upgraded to the faster EV-DO Rev. A.
