HONOLULU -- Sprint  customers in Hawaii can now enjoy the benefits of SprintSpeed from even more places in the state.

We continue to invest in Hawaii and worked aggressively in 2007 to ensure that Sprint customers have the enhanced coverage they need.

Nationally during 2007, Sprint added more than 4,000 cell sites to the Nationwide Sprint Network and Nextel National Network. Both networks are currently performing at their best-ever levels, which means fewer blocked or dropped calls, translating to better connections for customers.
