Sprint to offer 4G LTE service in 279 NYC subway stations, expands Direct 2 You service
The nation's fourth largest carrier, Sprint, is building out 4G LTE service in 279 subway stations in New York City. The project will be completed in 2017, and will bring 800MHz and 1.9GHz spectrum into each station. High traffic locations in Mid-town Manhattan and in Queens, will be outfitted with 2.5GHz spectrum for faster data speeds at those stations.

Six million riders a day traveling to and from the New York City boroughs of Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx, will be covered by Sprint's subway station service. Currently, Sprint has 83 NYC subway stations covered with its 4G network, more than Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile have hooked up.

Sprint also announced that its Direct 2 You delivery service is expanding. Now, Sprint customers in Charlotte, N.C., Cincinnati, Las Vegas, Nashville, New Orleans, Pittsburgh and Salt Lake City can have their new Sprint phone hand delivered. At the same time, the driver will be happy to move over content to the new unit, and show the phone owner exactly how to set-up and use his/her new handset. Other cities offering the service include New York, Chicago, L.A., Denver and Atlanta.

Those who use Direct 2 You can be entered into a contest to win $250,000. Snap a selfie of you and the Direct 2 You representative, and post it on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtags #Direct2You and #Sweepstakes. The contest ends on New Year's Day.
