Sprint Expands 4G LTE Network to New Markets in Puerto Rico

The carrier also enhances its 3G services in the area

Today, mobile phone carrier Sprint has officially announced the expansion of its 4G LTE network to new markets around the United States, including Aguadilla, Isabela, Cabo Rojo and Mayagüez in Puerto Rico, in addition to enhancing its 3G services in the area.

Sprint’s 4G LTE service (launched in 58 markets so far) has already been available for users in Ponce, Coamo and Guayama since last year, delivering faster download speeds to all users, as well as the possibility to easily upload photos and videos while on the go.

Sprint customers in Austin, Texas; Boston; College Station/Bryan, Texas; Columbia, Tenn.; Emporia, Kan.; Fort Wayne, Ind.; Framingham, Mass.; and Gettysburg, Pa can also enjoy the carrier’s new 4G services now, Sprint announced.

“Now residents and tourists in Puerto Rico can experience 4G LTE on their smartphones, tablets and wireless modems,” said Jeffrey Bennett, regional vice president-consumer sales, Sprint.

“Sprint customers in Puerto Rico will find that their 3G service has improved – bringing better voice quality and a more reliable signal. We continue to invest in and make improvements to Sprint’s 3G network in Puerto Rico so customers can expect to encounter fewer dropped and/or blocked calls as they reach out to their friends and family.”

Users interested in taking advantage of the fast speeds offered over the LTE network can do so on smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Note II or LG Optimus G, the carrier also announced.

Whether it comes to sharing a photo, a favorite song or a video with friends, these smartphones can deliver when paired with Sprint’s next-gen networks.

Sprint’s 4G LTE network is being built as part of the carrier’s Network Vision initiative, which also includes plans to enhance the available 3G coverage and to expand it to more areas.

The wireless carrier has already improved its coverage in areas such as Baltimore, Boston, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C. All Sprint 3G customers, including prepaid customers on Assurance Wireless, Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile, can enjoy the enhanced services there.

“When you combine the power of 4G LTE with an Everything Data plan with Any Mobile, Anytime, which includes unlimited Web, texting and calling to and from any mobile in America while on the Sprint Network, Sprint becomes the best choice in wireless,” the carrier notes.
