Sprint Corp (NYSE:S) is looking forward to expand its presence and investment in the New England Region. To achieve this dream, it intends to implement two strategies. The first way will be to establish about 60 new retail stores across the area whereas the second will be the addition of more than 450 jobs. The company expects to accomplish this in the next 18 months.
Some of the areas the provider will be setting up its stores include: Connecticut, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Upstate New York and Rhode Island. All those persons interested in the job opportunities are advised to visit the company’s website for more directions.
Sprint Corp has also made extensive network investments in markets such as Northern Connecticut, Boston, Providence, R.I., Buffalo, N.Y., and Rochester, N.Y. It has channeled some of its funds to upgrading more than 630 cell sites and that has been with the addition of HD Voice, LTE technology, 800 MHz, 2.5 GHz and Carrier Aggregation.
The importance of these upgrades is that they have helped boost the overall performance of video and other bandwidth-intensive applications in different parts of the region, and in venues such as Fenway Park and Gillette Stadium. The addition of 2.5 LTE at the new ERA stadium is also part of the developments the company has made recently.
Sprint has managed to create about 650 jobs for people in the New England Region and hopes to accomplish much through its local presence. As a matter of fact, the company has made a lot of progress in advancing its network though there are still a number of companies ahead of it.
Sprint Regional Vice President for Network, Mark Walker while addressing a press conference recently said, “We’ve been upgrading the network and deploying new technology on our cell sites across New England because Sprint customers in markets like Boston and Providence have increased their wireless data usage by more than 800 percent over the last five years.”
The demand for wireless has been rising with time and the provider intends to continue making the necessary upgrades and that will help boost customer confidence.
