Sprint and Crown Castle extend tower deal

28 JUL 2011

Sprint said it had “amended important contracts” with towers company Crown Castle, which the operator said will “enable the delivery of next-generation networks through Sprint’s Network Vision plan.” The deal establishes a uniform rate for deploying sites rather than contracts being negotiated site-by-site; provides Sprint with “the flexibility it needs to deploy next-generation technologies and to affect its future migration from iDEN;” and could enable the faster deployment of Network Vision by enabling both new and existing infrastructure to be operated for a period of time, “to ensure a smooth transition for customers.”
