However, ever since Google sold Motorola to Lenovo in 2014 and was relegated to merely a brand, the classic phone manufacturer’s devices have disappointingly gone from being amongst the first […]

Sprint has announced a revamped LTE services to deploy to markets with a significantly improved wireless experience for customers. This new network is deploying to 77 markets today, and it offers some notable new technologies that should make a world of difference for Sprint customers.
LTE Plus utilizes all three of Sprint’s bands of spectrum, using the 2.5 GHz band for speed, the 1.9 GHz band for coverage, and the 800 MHz band for building penetration. Carrier aggregation allows LTE Plus to bond multiple spectrums together to beef up the bandwidth and speed available to users, and Sprint claims the new network doubles both of those. Pretty impressive, especially considering that claim means capable devices can reach theoretical speeds of up to 100Mbps on that network.
The biggest claim that LTE Plus can make? It’s faster than Verizon and AT&T’s LTE network. Third party testing in 44 of the biggest markets show that data is transferred faster on Sprint’s LTE Plus network than Verizon or AT&T’s LTE network, which should give Sprint’s marketing department some serious ammunition to work with.
You can hit the link below to check out where Sprint is deploying this new network.
