• Sprint LTE Handsets Coming 2012

    Sprint Nextel (NYSE:S) intends to launch its first LTE handsets running on its forthcoming FDD-LTE network sometime in the second half of 2012, according to Sprint CFO Joseph Euteneuer.

    In a wide-ranging interview at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference, Euteneuer also said Sprint's LTE network will be "very competitive to what's out in the marketplace" in terms of LTE network speeds when the company does launch LTE service by mid-2012. Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ) and AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T) have said that their LTE networks deliver average downlink speeds of 5-12 Mbps.

    Sprint plans to first launch FDD-LTE on its 1900 MHz spectrum next year as part of its Network Vision network modernization project. Euteneuer also said that starting in 2012 Sprint will deploy LTE service on its 800 MHz spectrum as it moves iDEN customers on that spectrum to Sprint's CDMA push-to-talk service. Euteneuer said Sprint just deployed its first multi-mode base station as part of its Network Vision project, which is being constructed by Alcatel-Lucent (NASDAQ:ALU), Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) and Samsung.
