As well as offering standardised cellular technology for voice calls, SMS text messages and data transfer - including 3G broadband internet - Sprint also offers advanced business solutions such as cloud computing, hosted applications and virtualisation technology.
Over the last ten years Sprint Corporation has been working to improve its network performance. These efforts have been rewarded with a steady rise in subscribers from the 35 million customers the company had back in 2003, through to today's 55 million consumers. In an effort to retain existing customers and bring new ones on board, Sprint Corporation has launched a 'Now Network' advertising campaign that focuses on selling its services as simple, reliable and competitive.
