Sprint today said that it is working with existing partner C Spire Wireless to offer LTE roaming to C Spire's customers. In order to do this, Sprint has to make it possible to roam across multiple spectrum bands. "We are working closely on a technical solution for intercarrier 4G roaming between our network and others," said Dan Hesse, speaking at the Competitive Carrier Association conference. Specifically, the technology will have to let devices roam between the 700MHz, 850MHz, and 1900MHz bands. Sprint is currently operating it LTE network in its PCS 1900MHz spectrum, but plans to add LTE to other bands down the road. C Spire Wireless launched its own LTE service last year in the AWS 1700MHz and PCS 1900MHz bands. The companies did not say when they expect LTE roaming to become available.

Cant wait until all carriers make agreements on 4G LTE Roaming. Very Happy

Hopefully they dont set lame limitations. I have a feeling ATT and Verizon would be those individuals >
