Sprint to Showcase Network Upgrades in Chicago

Sprint plans to make Chicago into the showcase city of its upgraded network.  Over the next two year, the carrier plans to invest $45 million in its LTE Advanced infrastructure in Chicago.


Hundreds of new cell sites will be located in neighborhoods throughout the city and include the areas around Rush University Medical Center, along Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) subway routes as part of the project to upgrade the wireless network in the City’s system, and areas surrounding Garfield Park.

“Sprint’s investment means more jobs in our neighborhoods today, and supports Chicago’s continued economic growth,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “From the new storefronts to making us the first in the nation to upgrade to faster service, Sprint is helping to bring both the jobs and the technology to power Chicago’s neighborhoods and communities for the 21st century.”

“Chicago is the perfect city for Sprint to expand its operations – diverse, innovative and on the path to becoming a world-class technology leader,” said Marcelo Claure, Sprint CEO. “New stores mean more jobs, and a first-class network means loyal and satisfied customers ready to use faster and more reliable connections.” Chicago has long been Sprint’s city of choice for introducing new technologies and the company continues that commitment with the support of the Mayor’s office.
