LTE Plus
is now available in more than 190 U.S. markets. It takes
advantage of Sprint’s rich triband spectrum portfolio and uses some of
the world’s most advanced technologies in wireless. Carrier aggregation,
a feature of LTE Plus, creates a wider lane that allows more network
traffic to travel at higher rates, enabling Sprint to provide customers
even faster data speeds.

According to Sprint’s analysis of Nielsen Mobile Performance Data, the
Sprint LTE Plus Network beat Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile by delivering
faster download speeds2. Key LTE Plus benefits include:

  • Faster service with double the network capacity and speed, and peak
    speeds in excess of 100Mbps on capable devices.
  • Stronger service with smart antenna technology that extends the cell
    signal further at 2.5GHz.
  • More reliable service using three bands of spectrum – 1.9GHz for broad
    coverage, 800MHz for better indoor service, and 2.5GHz for even faster
    data speeds.

Consumers switching to Sprint can take advantage of the biggest
wireless offer
in U.S. history – 50 percent off the price of most
Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile rate plans.3 Customers who
switch get 50 percent off most current rate plan prices from their
current carrier. And, Sprint will cover switching fees up to $650 per
line.4

Sprint also offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee
– the industry’s best consumer satisfaction guarantee. If customers
aren’t completely satisfied within 30 days, they can return their phone
and Sprint will refund the cost of the device and service charges.5
