Sprint iDen Network

Technically, the narrowband iDen network Sprint obtained via its 2005 Nextel merger and based on Motorola technology is still kicking in 2012, but Sprint has given an end-of-life notice. The network, which supports the old push-to-talk-service but is super slow compared to today’s speedy networks, will shut down by June 30, 2013 so that Sprint can relieve itself of paying to operate two separate networks. Onward to CDMA and LTE!
