Users of the nation’s largest mobile broadband network now have the power of significantly faster upload speeds that are on par with some DSL services

KNOXVILLE, TN − March 27, 2007 − Beginning today, Sprint (NYSE: S) customers throughout the Knoxville and Chattanooga areas join the more than 140 million people in 5,400 communities who can enjoy access to the upgraded Sprint Mobile Broadband Network, which provides users faster data speeds and the ability to ultimately use richer applications and services such as high-speed video telephony, music-on-demand, video messaging and large file uploads.

The industry’s largest mobile broadband network allows customers in the Knoxville and Chattanooga areas to experience significantly faster average upload speeds of 350-500 Kbps (compared with 50-70 Kbps on current EV-DO networks) and average download speeds of 600 Kbps-1.4 Mbps (from 400-700 Kbps). Sprint’s upgraded mobile broadband network was awarded the coveted PC Magazine Editors’ Choice Award selected by a panel of PC Magazine editors, and leading industry experts.

“Sprint customers in Tennessee can now take advantage of the largest mobile broadband network to send and receive information at speeds that rival some DSL offerings without being tied to a desk,” said Craven Shumaker, Sprint area vice president of sales. “This leading technology gives our customers the powerful combination of mobility and speed so they can manage their business and personal lives while on the go.”

Upgraded EV-DO Revision A coverage will be available throughout most of the Greater Chattanooga and Knoxville areas including:

• Downtown Chattanooga and Knoxville and most of the surrounding suburbs
• Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport and McGhee Tyson Airport
• Along most of the Interstate 75 Corridor between Chattanooga and Knoxville

Currently, Sprint provides mobile broadband services throughout Tennessee including in and around Memphis, Jackson, Nashville and Murfreesboro and many areas in between. The upgrade to the faster technology is part of Sprint’s ongoing investment in its wireless and wireline networks nationwide. Last year, Sprint spent more than $55 million in Tennessee and $7 billion nationally to improve its networks.
