Overland Park, Kan.-based Sprint (NYSE: S) and Atlanta-based Cox Communications have inked a new multi-year partnership that was reached as part of a settlement of patent litigation. Sprint reported the agreement will allow it to leverage Cox's broadband infrastructure to accelerate the densification of the Sprint network while simultaneously increasing efficiency of its macro backhaul and small cell deployment. "This is another opportunity to work with a strategic partner to accelerate our densification plans to improve our network performance and experience for Sprint customers throughout Cox's national territory," Sprint's Chief Technology Officer John Saw said in a statement.
