    Sprint Demonstrates 1 Gigabit Over-the-Air Speed at Silicon Valley Lab

    Sprint Spark Currently Delivers 50-60 Megabit Per Second Peak Speeds

    Sprint poised to deliver the industry’s fastest wireless network speeds to approximately 100 of America’s largest cities
    Press Release: Sprint – 22 minutes ago..
    OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

    Sprint (NYSE:S) demonstrated live today 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) over-the-air speed at its lab near Silicon Valley, Calif. This was the highlight of a day that showcased the innovation and what’s possible on the Sprint network as the company unveiled technology with the potential to surpass wireless speeds of any U.S. network provider.
    “Sprint Spark is a combination of advanced capabilities, like 1x, 2x and 3x carrier aggregation for speed, 8T8R for coverage, MIMO for capacity, TDD for spectral efficiency, together with the most advanced devices offering both tri-band capability and high-definition voice for the best possible customer experience,” said Dan Hesse, CEO of Sprint.
    Sprint plans to deploy Sprint Spark in about 100 of America’s largest cities during the next three years, with initial availability in five markets today. Sprint 4G LTE service will be available by mid-

    • great news and need to be discussed more. With wins like these in US market, the chances of an ALU acquisition diminishes significantly imo.

    • Radio heads

      A key ingredient enabling Sprint Spark is equipment compatibility with the architecture of the Sprint initiative known as Network Vision. Alcatel-Lucent, Nokia Solutions and Networks and Samsung have been selected to provide 2.5GHz radio heads and to enable Sprint Spark. Each company will service approximately one-third of Sprint’s deployment markets. These 2.5GHz radios are expected to have capabilities for 8 Transmitters 8 Receivers (8T8R), which will be a first deployment of its kind in North America. These radios will be capable of improved coverage, capacity and speeds when compared to the more traditional 2T2R or 4T4R radios used by our competitors.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • How much is the deal? It is all going in the right direction, but people can't expect a straight line though in its stock price. It is no fun if it just goes up, we have to have intrigue, confusion, fear, buying opportunities. Fear is beautiful, it makes life interesting, don't y'know eh.

      Plus another patent win! Expect the good news to keep on flowing!

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Great news, so long as they don't pull a "WiMax" with Spark and halfass it. I guess Clearwire is not up to the task, which should surprise nobody. 

    • Good find!

    • Congrats NSN !

    • Here is the part of the press release..

      Sprint Spark components

      Sprint is building the Sprint Spark capability using a unique combination of spectrum capacity and network technologies. Today the company has approximately 55,000 macro cell sites; a level Sprint expects staying at for the next few years. The company also anticipates using small cells to augment capacity, coverage and speed. Small cell deployment is expected to begin in 2014, continuing into 2015 and beyond.
