sprint shareholdersOur world does seem to be obsessed with breaking records every single day, and when it comes to data speeds of your mobile or Internet line, you can be sure that forums and message boards alike will light up with different parties pointing out just why you ought to take their side. According to Strategy Analytics, a report that was issued by the research firm claimed that mobile carriers seem to be moving away from network coverage and tend to focus more on the speed of their data pipelines. Guang Yang, Strategy Analytics’ senior analyst for wireless networks and platforms, claimed that the TDD spectrum in the 2.5GHz band which Sprint acquired from Clearwire in 2013 could very well hold the key to enable Sprint to offer its customers with “super high speed data connections.”

Apart from that, Strategy Analytics also has nothing but positive vibes concerning Sprint’s tri-band LTE service which is known as Sprint Spark. The network will work with circuitry on selected handsets in order to think for itself, just which of the trio of bands happen to be the best for a selected task. Thanks to carrier aggregation, the three bands (800 MHz, 1.9 GHz and 2.5 GHz) are capable of offering speeds of up to 50Mbps to 60Mbps, with Sprint Chairman Dan Hesse claiming that such technology is capable of offering real-world speeds of 150 to 180Mbps.
