New Network Vision and LTE Deployment info released in Sprint Webinar today
A point that Mr. Barcomb repeated several times is ‘while we are in the neighborhood with Network Vision, we will be adding LTE.’
‘while we are in the neighborhood with Network Vision, we will be adding LTE.’
This is a point he stressed and reiterated to make it clear that even early Network Vision markets will be receiving full LTE-1900 deployment.
This is an appreciated point, because I have heard comments from several people concerned that the early Network Vision deployments may not include LTE.
Sprint repeatedly has said their LTE deployment will begin in Summer 2012.
However, in reality, Sprint’s LTE deployment is under way right now.
Kansas City. KCMO/KCKS will be one of the first Network Vision markets. As Mr. Barcomb said, “Surprise, surprise.”
LTE Advanced. The way that Sprint is deploying
their LTE network in Network Vision will allow
it to *easily upgrade* to LTE Advanced when it
comes to market in 2013.
If you are following the Google Wallet / NFC-Samsung-Sprint initiative / rollout which includes NYC, SF/Bay Area ,DC, Chigago ,LA take note of the upgrades / enhancements in same..especially NYC.,..food for thought.
