Sprint Network Jointly Awarded #1 Ranking in Call and Text Performance in New Hampshire

Sprint today announced that its all-new network in New Hampshire shares first-place RootScore® Awards for call and text performance according to a recent report by independent testing company RootMetrics®.

Last week Sprint also introduced new shared data plans that offer double the high-speed data at the same price as AT&T and Verizon Wireless.

“We’re very proud to report that Sprint’s all-new network offers outstanding call and text performance in New Hampshire,” said Joe Meyer, vice president of Sprint Network Performance. “With our new data plans, there’s never been a better time to switch to America’s Newest Network.”

Best Deal on Data

The Sprint Family Share Pack offers double the high-speed shareable data1 for smartphones, basic phones, tablets and mobile broadband devices. For example, customers can get four lines and 20GB of data for $160 compared to 10GB of data for the same price from AT&T or Verizon. Sprint is offering a limited-time promotion for the Sprint Family Share Pack: For a family with up to 10 lines, get 20GB of Shared Data and Unlimited Talk & Text for only $100 a month through 20152 – and, as an added bonus, customers will get an additional 2GB per line for up to 10 lines. For a family of four, that’s a savings of $60 per month better than AT&T’s and Verizon’s current pricing through 2015; double the data of Verizon; and more than double the high-speed data of AT&T and T-Mobile.

Sprint also now offers the best unlimited wireless plan available from a national carrier with the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan. This plan provides consumers unlimited talk, text and data while on America’s Newest Network for just $60 per month, a $20 savings compared to T-Mobile's $80 per month unlimited plan. Simple, easy, affordable – the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan is available to both new and existing Sprint customers. To qualify for the plan, customers must purchase their device through Sprint Easy Pay, pay full retail price or bring their own compatible device.

All-New Network

As part of a nationwide multi-year overhaul, Sprint has transformed its network across New Hampshire to deliver faster data speeds and improved call quality. Network improvements include:

  • 4G LTE for faster, more reliable data delivering peak wireless speeds of 25Mbps.
  • HD Voice, a new Sprint standard for crystal-clear voice calls providing a fuller, more natural-sounding voice, plus noise reduction technology that virtually eliminates background noise from places like a busy road or crowded restaurant.
  • Stronger in-building coverage using 800MHz low frequency spectrum.

Looking ahead, Sprint will continue to invest in its New Hampshire network by implementing new technologies and techniques to make the network more efficient and deliver improved performance and faster data speeds. Sprint Spark, an enhanced LTE service that’s built for data, will offer peak wireless speeds of 50-60Mbps on capable devices, with increasing speed potential over time.

RootMetrics, an independent mobile analytics firm that offers insights into the consumer mobile experience, tests the networks of all four major wireless carriers in the U.S. twice per year. The company provides objective, unbiased assessments of performance across a broad range of consumer-oriented mobile activities including data usage, calling, and texting.

Rankings based on RootMetrics New Hampshire RootScore® Report for mobile performance as tested on best available plans and devices on 4 mobile networks across all available network types (January – June 2014).

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development.

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control.
