SouthernLINC Scores iDEN Roaming Agreement with Sprint

SouthernLINC CEO Bob Dawson told Phone Scoop today that the company has signed a major roaming agreement with Sprint Nextel. Under the terms of the agreement, SouthernLINC users will be able to roam onto Sprint Nextel's 800MHz iDEN network and access push-to-talk and data services. Users will be able to make nationwide PTT calls from within SouthernLINC's home coverage region, as well. SouthernLINC will introduce new rate plans to coincide with the availability of nationwide roaming onto Sprint's network. The agreement, which vastly improves the service footprint of SoutherLINC, may be a short-lived victory for the privately owned company, which is headquartered in Atlanta. Sprint has publicly announced plans to eventually transition away from iDEN-based PTT and will at some point shut down the iDEN network entirely so its 800MHz spectrum can be used for other services. Dawson said that SouthernLINC will worry about that transition if and when it arrives. The agreement is to take effect at some point in April, though the exact date has yet to be announced.
