Sprint LTE Plus Data speeds up 28% in 7 months

Sprint (NYSE:S) customers are having a better network experience than ever with national average download speeds up 28 percent in seven months, according to Ookla Speedtest Intelligence data, the company said.

Ookla data also shows Sprint now ranks #1 for the fastest average download speed in 15 cities such as Atlanta, Denver, Indianapolis, Salt Lake City and Seattle.1

The new data comes on the heels of another recent independent report stating that in the past six months Sprint´s 4G LTE availability had improved to nearly rival AT&T, and Sprint´s average speeds had also improved. Separately, the report also stated that Verizon and AT&T´s average speeds slowed due to their introduction of unlimited data plans.2

Sprint continues to expand its toolbox of solutions for adding network coverage and capacity to provide customers with a great unlimited data experience. Sprint´s newest innovation, Sprint Magic Box, is improving data speeds for thousands of its customers such as the City of Kansas City, North Boone School District, and some residents at the Denver Housing Authority where Sprint Magic Box increased download speeds by more than 300 percent in that location.
