sprint_logoSprint revealed today in its Q2 2013 results that it had sold 1.4 million iPhones last quarter, with 41% of those iPhones being sold to new customers. The company announced an 8% overall year-over-year growth, posting a record high revenue of $8 billion. This holds steady when compared to the 1.4 million iPhones it sold in the year-ago quarter. Sprint also announced LTE networks in 41 new markets, bringing its total LTE locations to 151 markets.
Eighty-six percent of quarterly Sprint platform postpaid handset sales were smartphones, including approximately 1.4 million iPhones® sold during the quarter. Forty-one percent of iPhone sales were to new customers.
In 2011, Sprint committed to buying $20 billion worth of iPhones from Apple, and launched the iPhone on its prepaid Virgin Mobile USA brand in the year-ago quarter.

Can you believe that some people have to deal with a slow network???

The horror!

There's even people on this planet that don't have adequate shelter, running water or a warm meal! It's like... "It's 2013. C'mon get with the times dude!"

The nerve of those less fortunate!

There's a sucker born every minute. I can't believe people are willing to deal with a slow network, just to save a few dollars. Pathetic.

Sprint lte is actually respectable in my area. Or at least the speed test I ran on my buddies phone was. The problem arises when you leave lte coverage :p


How far can you actually go before you leave LTE coverage? Meaning are there a lot of holes or is it pretty consistent?

the $20B commitment seems extravagant and beyond reason

edit--
the article does not stipulate until when the $20B in iphones should me completed

The original deal was for 4 years. And if I recall correctly, it was quoted as $15Bil, not $20Bil.

Here's a link (http://www.networkworld.com/community/blog/sprint-ceo-dan-hesse-talks-about-sprints-15-billion-iphone-investment)where Dan Hesse (Sprint's CEO) describes the deal as $15.5 Billion. Shame on Macrumors for calling it a $20Bil deal.

The 41% made a mistake! I've been on Sprint for a few years now and still no beloved LTE in NJ. Only in like 2 cities out of the whole state and I'm pretty sure 1 city is getting that signal from Staten Island, NY :(
