Sprint prepares for 2009 Presidential Inauguration6
Who thought that third place in total wireless subscribers domestically could be such a bad thing? With less than a week away before the president elect is sworn into office, Sprint has been busy around Washington, D.C. area preparing for it. Since April of 2008, the number three wireless provider in the U.S. has been aggressively increasing its Nationwide Sprint Network capacity by 40 percent. Additionally, they have been doing the same for their Nextel National Network by 90 percent around the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area. The key agencies that will benefit the most are first responders who will be able to use a government-run Wireless Priority Service (WPS) program and Priority Connect on Nextel Direct Connect.
