Sprint unveiled one of its secret plans of densifying the network by adding thousands of network enhancements using some of the most advanced technologies in wireless. Sprint’s toolbox of solutions include Sprint Magic Box, outdoor small cells, High Performance User Equipment (HPUE) and three-channel carrier aggregation in Chicagoland.
Along with the network enhancements, Sprint will be adding more than 100 Sprint and Boost Mobile stores in Chicagoland and adding more than 500 new jobs.
Bigger, Better Signal and Capacity in Chicagoland than before
Just like Sprint’s demonstration last year of the power of three-channel carrier aggregation where Sprint hit peak speeds of 230 Mbps at Soldier Field, customers in Chicagoland may now able to experience those peak speeds themselves with the hottest new devices capable of utilizing these new technologies on capable devices.
As for HPUE, this new technology can extend Sprint’s 2.5 GHz coverage by up to 30% to provide faster data speeds in more locations, including indoors where the majority of wireless traffic is generated.
For example, Lombard customers will have noticed the significant increase in speeds over the past month, thanks to a combination of these new technologies including Sprint Magic Box.
Sprint Magic Box, the world’s first all – wireless small cell, is a revolutionary new plug–and–play LTE small cell for businesses and consumers that dramatically improves data coverage and increases download and upload speeds on average by 200 percent.
Data usage of Sprint customers has increased more than 1,254% in the last five years in Chicagoland.
