CTIA: Sprint Announces Tri-Band LTE Devices

Sprint announced the summer launch of a trio of mobile broadband devices that will take advantage of three bands of 4G LTE wireless spectrum available to Sprint’s network: 1.9GHz and 800MHz as well as Clearwire’s LTE network at 2.5GHz.

The first tri-band Sprint 4G LTE-capable mobile broadband devices will be the sleek MiFi 500 LTE by Novatel Wireless, international-capable NETGEAR Zing Mobile Hotspot and the plug-in NETGEAR 341U USB Modem. Pricing and exact availability dates for the three devices will be provided at a later date.

“We are very pleased to reach another Network Vision milestone today as we continue to be on schedule to deliver a world-class LTE network experience for our customers,” said Steve Elfman, president of Network Operations and Wholesale. “These three devices from our partners at Novatel and NETGEAR provide a clear look at the benefits of consolidating networks and making the best use of our spectrum assets. Best of all, these new mobile broadband devices bring our customers innovative features, including touchscreens and international capability.”
