Beginning July 30th, Sprint’s new 4G LTE network and improved 3G service will be available in the Bronx and Brooklyn. Also, with the groundbreaking Sprint Unlimited Guarantee, available with an Unlimited, My WaySM or My All-inSM plan, customers can get unlimited talk, text and data while on the Sprint network guaranteed for the life of the line of service. In addition to the Bronx and Brooklyn, customers are finding 4G LTE in parts of Manhattan, Staten Island and Queens – which are expected to officially launch service in the coming months.
“Whether you’re uploading videos from your neighborhood in Brooklyn or sending photos to your friends, Sprint 4G LTE provides impressive wireless data speeds,” said Karen Paletta, regional vice president-Sprint. “We think that New Yorkers of every age and background, as well as customers of Sprint’s prepaid brands, Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA will appreciate Sprint’s improved 3G service and 4G LTE.”
In more exciting news for Sprint customers in New York City, Transit Wireless and Sprint recently announced that the companies have finalized their contract to bring Sprint’s wireless voice and data service to the state-of-the-art wireless network in the New York subway system.
