Wireless Connectivity

Sprint Corporation (NYSE:S) has entered into agreements with 12 rural mobile network carriers, providing small carriers the potential to offer their customers high speed broadband solutions. The step is a further mve in the company’s initiative it announced earlier in March with NetAmerican Alliance and Competitive Carriers Association. These deals aim at boosting wireless competition by allowing carriers and hence their customer database access to the sprint 4G LTE network. The agreements not only help the company to pursue wider range of handheld devices, but also help the company discover an opportunity to speed up the installation and utilization of 4G LTE across the whole of America, while keeping the networks establishment expenses and roaming costs at check.

ConnectED

Apart from the above endeavor, Sprint Corporation (NYSE:S) also made an important move in providing support to the government’s ConnectED program. The company has launched an online application and opened up an information portal to assist institutions and schools in availing the Sprint Spark high speed wireless broadband network for a period of 4 years. Sprint aims to benefit as many as 50,000 students across the U.S. with its offering. At the same time, the company will benefit a stronger ground in the Internet business as the program will allow it to reach out to a greater population.

Reportedly, other communications companies have also made a move in this direction. Competitor AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) has made a similar initiative to support ConnectED and launched an online application allowing $100 million free classroom connectivity.
