For LTE network slow but thorough will win the day, Sprint says

The story, "For LTE network slow but thorough will win the day, Sprint says," posted to the wire on Wednesday, incorrectly stated how many of Sprint Nextel's iDEN radios will be shut down by the end of this year. Approximately one-third will be shut down.

The story has been corrected on the wire. The 12th paragraph now reads as follows:

One-third of Sprint's radios for its narrowband iDEN service are on track to be shut down before the end of this year. Sprint is working at shifting over iDEN users to its 3G CDMA network and said it is happy with progress on that score. The popular push-to-talk feature of iDEN is being replaced by Direct Connect, which runs on 3G and now matches the original technology in call setup, latency and call success, according to Sprint. The company is also making Direct Connect available as software for integration into third-party applications.
