Sprint plans to deploy Long Term Evolution-Advanced on its 800MHz spectrum during the first half of 2013, said an executive at the 4G World trade show today. Iyad Tarazi, vice president of network development at Sprint, said that the company will deploy LTE-Advanced Release 10 in a 10x10 configuration. It believes it can achieve download speeds in the 12Mbps to 15Mbps range with that set-up. Sprint will begin deploying standard LTE on its 1900MHz spectrum by mid-2012. It will offer data over LTE and voice over its CDMA network, though it will eventually transition to voice-over-LTE in 2013. Sprint believes it can have between 250 million and 277 million POPs covered by its LTE network by the end of 2013. The company plans to launch 12 devices running LTE in 2012.
