Sprint Beats T-Mobile on Network Reliability in Miami

Sprint’s Network Investment Strategy is Key to Continued Progress in
Market-by-Market Wireless Performance

MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sprint’s (NYSE: S) analysis of network performance data from Nielsen,
the world’s foremost authority on independent measurement, now
shows that the Sprint network in Miami, Fla., is more reliable than
T-Mobile for both voice and data service.

The analysis is based on Nielsen’s testing of wireless performance for
voice and data while driving more than 2,250 miles around Miami between
September and November 2015. Nielsen’s reliability tests measure both
accessibility and retainability of voice calls and data sessions. For
example, it measures the ability of a voice call or download to
initially connect to the network as well as maintain that network
connection from start to finish.

In addition to offering strong reliability, Sprint is deploying some of
the most advanced technologies in wireless such as carrier aggregation
on the 2.5GHz spectrum band. This feature of Sprint’s super-fast LTE
Plus Network creates a wider lane that allows more network traffic to
travel at higher rates, enabling Sprint to provide Miami customers with
even faster data speeds. In addition, Sprint has relentlessly focused on
expanding and fine-tuning the network in Miami. In the past year, the
company increased its capacity, and systematically optimized each cell
site to maximize performance. Sprint also improved service and upgraded
the wireless systems in key areas and venues such as Marlins Park, Sun
Life Stadium, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Aventura
Mall and American Airlines Arena.

““Network coverage and reliable service are among the top reasons
wireless consumers stay with or switch carriers. Sprint is proud that
the network investments we’re making are paying off for consumers
throughout South Florida. They’re getting better voice and data
reliability than T-Mobile and every day we getting closer to closing the
wireless performance gap with the other wireless carriers too. Our
superior network performance over T-Mobile in Miami combined with
compelling offers like 50% off the competition, makes it a great time to
give Sprint a try.”

Jaime Jones, Sprint President, South Area
