They are replacing all old equipment with new Samsung equipment.. The nice thing about this new NV ( Network Vision ) Samsung stuff is Sprint can switch their network over to LTE-A ( Advanced ) in a couple years - with a software upgrade ! From what I understand Verizon and ATT are having to switch out panels to do this.. So Sprint which seems behind now - will be right there when it counts in the near future..
What's funny is a lot of folks say Sprint Wi-max was not 4G ( and ATT HPSA+ is not 4G ) while also referring to LTE as true 4G ( Mostly because Verizon has marketed LTE as 4G when talking down ATT's HPSA+) ...The truth is LTE is no more 4g then Wi-max or HPSA+.. All those technologies are halfway between 3G and 4G (more like 3.5G techs) ...
.. LTE-A will actually be TRUE 4th Generation technology and will be more of a 'leap' in speed, then the 'skip' we get now with LTE..
