October 2nd sees changes in Sprint's Direct Connect service
Yesterday we reported about a number of changes that Sprint is expected to make on October 2nd. To that list, you can add changes to the carrier's Direct Connect service. One major change (coming in Q1, 2012) is the ability to support international PTT, something that neither Verizon or AT&T offer, according to the leaked internal screenshot obtained by SprintFeed.

Other features of the new Direct Connect include the ability to reach a group of 200 at the same time (vs. a maximum of 50 for both AT&T and Verizon), and the per-second PTT billing that the nation's third largest carrier offers. And according to the comparison chart, it takes less than second to set-up a PTT call on Sprint, something that you can't do using PTT on the other two carriers. You can check the chart below to make your own comparisons between the top 3 U.S. carriers and their PTT capabilities.
