Sprint Targeting First Half of 2013 for LTE-Advanced

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.

no 10 MHz x 10 MHz configuration in SMR 800 MHz spectrum

The article states that "Sprint plans to deploy Long Term Evolution-Advanced on its 800MHz spectrum" and "will deploy LTE-Advanced Release 10 in a 10x10 configuration."

Those two intentions are incompatible with one another. Sprint's reconfigured SMR 800 MHz X band 12 MHz license is 6 MHz x 6 MHz. So, Sprint can deploy LTE 800 in a 5 MHz x 5 MHz configuration. If Sprint is to deploy LTE in a 10 MHz x 10 MHz configuration, that will have to be in PCS 1900 MHz or BRS/EBS 2500-2600 MHz spectrum.

For related info, see my previous post on CDMA band class 10 in SMR 800 MHz spectrum:

I knew something didn't sound right about that!!!

Good catch man! Someone has their wires crossed on this article!
Would they still be able to get the same tyical speeds of 12-15 Mbps? Sort of a noob to the cell side of networking.
Sweet lord, that was one epic nerdpost. Kudos.

Bout time!

I don't have Sprint no more but this is the first time in a ling time that they jump head first into something that is a smart decision. I still could care less bout them tho. VZW still will look into deploying it too but just not so soon right now. Plus I get these speeds anyway right now. So VZW will be faster once or if they decide to deploy it, which I believe they will. LTE is the future along with LTE Advance.
