Sprint today announced the launch of 4G in the Lone Star state's biggest city: Houston. The next generation of wireless, also known as 4G, provides fast mobile downloads, streaming video and Web browsing at turbo-speed and delivers downloads. More info:
With today's launch, Sprint makes Texas the "biggest 4G state" in terms of the number of people who have access to the Sprint mobile network. In addition to Houston, the 4G network is currently operating in Abilene, Amarillo, Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Fort Worth, Killeen/Temple, Lubbock, Midland/Odessa, San Antonio, Waco and Wichita Falls. Nationwide, Sprint boasts 28 markets that have 4G capability today.
Sprint delivers 4G to consumers and businesses, and Sprint's 4G powered products, such as Overdrive 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot, USB Modem and USB Mobile Broadband, make any online experience better by enabling users to stream video, download files and browse the Web at download speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G.
Texans will be able to enjoy the capabilities of the recently announced HTC EVO 4G - the world's first 3G/4G Android phone (available later in 2010). The HTC EVO 4G provides a superior and robust multimedia experience. It is a hotspot and a phone, making it possible to download music, pictures, videos in seconds - not minutes - and watch streaming video on-the-go.
In 2010, Sprint will launch many more markets, and is expected to cover up to 120 million people with Sprint 4G service, and will introduce several 4G devices, including a single-mode 4G data card and embedded laptops. View 4G coverage for all Sprint 4G markets at www.sprint.com/4G
