Sprint Expands its Carrier Ethernet Footprint

Sprint has expanded its U.S. Ethernet footprint to Central and Northern New Jersey, Stockton, Calif., and Baltimore, Md., and has deepened its coverage in 10 U.S. markets. The carrier now offers Ethernet access in 28 markets nationwide and 35 countries globally. Sprint expects to further enhance and expand coverage in an additional 16 U.S. markets later this year.

Sprint's Ethernet access solution connects from the customer's premises to the Sprint Global MPLS or DIA networks using an Ethernet local loop. Speeds range from 2 Mbps to 1 Gbps, subject to market availability.
