Sprint to rollout LTE Advanced to Chicago area

Matt Hamblen | March 31, 2015
Sprint plans to add more than 540 jobs and 115 stores in the Chicago area along with its first LTE-Advanced upgrade in the nation. LTE Advanced has the potential of delivering 100 Mbps wireless download speeds.

Sprint has also created a Chicago-focused team with a general manager to improve customer service, collaborate with community groups and simplify the purchasing experience for local wireless customers.

Wireless usage by Sprint customers has increased in Chicago by 640% since 2012 and Sprint has invested more than $548 million over that period, the company said.

Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure called Chicago the perfect city for a Sprint expansion, calling it "diverse, innovative and on the path to becoming a world-class technology leader."
