Sprint opens new 5G centre at Kansas City headquarters

Thursday 14 March 2019 | 17:33 CET | News
Sprint inaugurated its Sprint 5G Experience at its Kansas City headquarters. The dedicated immersive centre is designed to showcase and explain the ways in which 5G works and to help change the way people live, work and play. The space was unveiled ahead of the company's 5G commercial service launch expected to begin in Kansas City and other markets in May.

The Sprint 5G Experience features more than a dozen stations and demonstrations that use augmented reality, virtual reality and simulated displays. The journey takes visitors through the foundation for 5G from spectrum to a fibre-optics network and from Massive MIMO technology to real-world demonstrations of 5G’s lower latency. Guests will learn how 5G will help innovate gaming and entertainment, power smart cities and make cities safer, and connect billions of things through IoT. The space is located in Sprint’s Executive Briefing Center in Overland Park.

Sprint expects to launch its commercial 5G service starting in May. Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas and Kansas City are among the first of its nine 5G markets. Also slated to launch in the first half of 2019 are Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix and Washington D.C. Its total initial 5G footprint is expected to cover more than 1,000 square miles across all nine cities giving true mobility to on-the-go customers.
