Sprint updates network in St. Louis
HTC EVO users on Sprint in St. Louis might be noticing fewer dropped calls and faster data speeds, thanks to some network upgrades the carrier has completed. According to Sprint, the Now Network has completed 32 network capacity upgrades in the St. Louis area, with 30 more scheduled throughout Missouri for the next three months.
From the official press release:
Thanks to recent 3G capacity upgrades from Sprint (NYSE:S), residents of the Gateway City can clearly tell friends and family to “Meet Me in St. Louis” this spring, whether it’s for a baseball game, post-season college basketball game or a bike ride through Forest Park … Whether it’s St. Charles, Chesterfield, Creve Coeur or Kirkwood, Sprint customers in metro St. Louis should expect faster data speeds, fewer dropped calls and confidence that Sprint is committed to investing in Missouri and keeping pace with the ever-increasing demand for data.
Sprint went on to say that it completed 28,513 network upgrades in 2011, and that Network Vision work is currently underway on 38,000 cell sites across the country.
Personally, I live about 90 minutes north of St. Louis in Springfield, Illinois, and I've noticed some improvements around town, although there's still work for Sprint to do. How about any of you in or closer to the St. Louis area? How are your data speeds looking these days?[Sprint]
