Sprint also announced the forthcoming availability of international Wi-Fi Calling on select smartphones. With Wi-Fi Calling, Sprint customers will be able to make calls and send texts via Wi-Fi in more than 100 countries around the world. Wi-Fi Calling will launch in a few weeks. Last, Sprint is prepared to deploy 8T8R radios in order to boost the coverage and the strength of its 2.5GHz spectrum.
