Good Things. We are continuously upgrading the nTelos network locally, allowing it to operate as part of Sprint’s enhanced 4G LTE network nationwide. Over the past year we have nearly doubled the 4G LTE coverage nTelos offered, and we will complete our 4G LTE expansion in the nTelos footprint this year. Futhermore, we have added over 60 new cell sites to our local network and will continue to invest in new cell sites. That means more coverage in more places, stronger signals and much faster downloads.

- You will be given the option to move to a customized Sprint rate plan that matches your existing nTelos plan for the same price you pay today. If you choose this option, you will not need to sign a new contract – your current contract and plan will continue with Sprint.
- Or you will be given the option to sign up for any other Sprint plan available at the time of your migration which may better fit your current wireless needs.
For the better! We are committed to investing approximately $350 million to upgrade and expand the nTelos local network to allow it to operate as part of the Sprint enhanced 4G LTE network. Over the next two years, we will be adding more than 150 additional coverage sites and rolling out major network upgrades in your area. That means more coverage in more places, stronger signals and faster downloads.
