CHICAGO -- Sprint (NYSE:S) today announced that more customers in the metropolitan Chicago area will have access to high-speed 4G LTE service – bringing faster speeds for uploading holiday photos, surfing the Web for the best bargains, and streaming homemade winter videos. Sprint continues to show significant progress in the buildout of its all-new 4G LTE network – reaching more customers every day.
“Now even more Chicagoans can experience 4G LTE on their smartphones, tablets and wireless modems,” said Kimberly Green-Kerr, regional vice president-Business Sales, Sprint. “In the Windy City area, customers will find that 4G LTE is available downtown and in more places around the metropolitan area.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
