2018 could finally be the year Sprint’s network becomes good

January 31st, 2018

Sprint has comfortably occupied the plucky underdog role among wireless carriers for the last five years.

‘Confusion and skepticism’ could turn users away from 4G, study says

July 13th, 2011

According to a new report from Retrevo, consumer “confusion and skepticism” could impede the adoption of 4G devices. We’re not surprised.
