Sprint is continuing their mission of bringing faster 3G data speeds to users nationwide, with their most recent network upgrades happening in "The Beaver State," or "The Sunset State," or "The Hard-case State" – in other words, the great state of Oregon.

So what does this really mean for Sprint customers? In a word: Everything. It means faster data speeds, so you can download Google Music Store on your HTC EVO™ 3D and hear the latest free song of the day. It means fewer dropped calls so you can call grandma to wish her Merry Christmas. It means confidence that Sprint is committed to investing in Oregon and keeping pace with the ever-increasing demand for data.
In the past few weeks, Sprint has announced similar upgrades for Las Vegas, San Francisco, central New York, and Hawaii. We'll continue to keep our eyes open for additional 3G announcements around the country, but as for our readers in Oregon: have you noticed the improvements in coverage?[Sprint]
