Sprint Strategy Update invite

Clear your schedules for early October, Sprint users, because your carrier just sent out invites to a "Strategy Update" event to be held on October 7th. The event is scheduled to take place from 9:30 AM-1:00PM ET. There's no mention of exactly what Sprint is planning for the event, but the invite does say that there will be presentations from Sprint senior management.

So what might Sprint's "Strategy Update" be about? The topic of 4G seems the likeliest candidate for discussion. Not only did Sprint CEO Dan Hesse recently say that his carrier would be making a major 4G announcement this fall, the Now Network also signed an LTE-related deal with LightSquared last month and is rumored to be in talks concerning a purchase of Clearwire, which has said that it plans to roll out LTE coverage of its own.

Of course, the date of this event also lines up nicely with the rumored early October launch of the iPhone 5, which Sprint may finally be getting this year. It seems doubtful that Sprint would schedule a "Strategy Update" event just for the iPhone — if it does end up getting the device, that is — but the carrier may touch a bit on Apple's new smartphone at the gathering. Whatever Sprint has up its sleeve, you can be sure we'll be bringing you the news from the event as we get it. Until then, go ahead and drop your own opinions on what this whole "Strategy Update" is about in the comments. If you end up being right, you could try to use it as evidence to show that you can read the future! Just saying.

King Josef I have been with sprint since 2003 and been through majority of their ups and downs overall sprint has came a long way being the number 3 carrier and now in 2011 they had 1 of the best years in a long time they have more 4 g device than any of the carrier in america although there internet speeds are not that lightning fast ... this brings me to conclude that this conference will be about the new lte 4g.... iphone 5 & how they will be the only carrier to have no cap on the internet throttle
