Prior to the highly anticipated reveal of two well known LTE handsets, Sprint opens up its plan to improve its networks saying that it will enhance its 3G networks and stabilize its future LTE network strategically. It is very much possible that Sprint will offer the Galaxy S3 of Samsung and the upcoming iPhone 5 of Apple.
However, prior to the launches, it recently presented the scheduled upgrade of its network for the main purpose of improving the present performance and coverage of its 3G network as well as to maximize its future LTE network's potential.
PC Magazine said that Sprint recently presented its plan at the CTIA event. With that, it told the audience that it will launch an improved 3G network, a strong connectivity for its LTE 4G network and an enhanced push-to-talk quality.
Sprint's network competitors offer 3G and LTE with tiered data plans. Arguably, the smartphone data plans of Sprint can rival Verizon and AT&T if only it is stable enough to be able to support to a huge amount of subscribers who surf the web simultaneously.
Apparently, Sprint was faced with complaints last year regarding the iPhone 4S' weak 3G connection. Currently, it appears that the third biggest wireless carrier has already learned its lesson.
At present, Sprint's offer of the iPhone 4 and 4S comes with unlimited data to let customers enjoy internet connection 24/7 for only one data fee each month. The unlimited data plans of Sprint are also offered for Android-powered smartphones.
According to Bob Azzi, the Senior VP of the carrier, the company is currently concentrating on its subscribers and it is confident that it will be a really competitive network.
In case Sprint will indeed offer the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3, then there is a high possibility that the future upgrade of its network is a good move because it will let them compete with Verizon Wireless and AT&T which are the top two carriers in the U.S. However, Sprint will only launch the LTE in six cities and it has not announced anything yet regarding other areas.
Rumors say that the iPhone 5 will be Apple's first LTE phone while the Galaxy S3 of Samsung just like the Galaxy Nexus is anticipated to have LTE support with the aid of the new Krait CPU of Qualcomm which is the Snapdragon S4.
