Sprint Demos Games Streaming Over Its Next-Gen Wireless Network

by Stephen Bye

Ask any gamer. If you’re looking for a great network connection, you want more than just the ability to suck down bits and bytes quickly. For smooth gaming – especially when you’re playing a game on a remote server – you want one with low latency.

That’s tough to deliver over wired networks. So we figured streaming games would be the perfect way to illustrate not just the speed – but the low latency delivered by our next-generation Sprint Spark wireless network. Just imagine being able to stream the very latest, most graphically-intense game to your mobile device while you’re on the go.

That’s why we’re using NVIDIA’s GRID cloud gaming technology to demonstrate “Borderlands 2” being streamed over our next-generation Sprint Spark wireless network to a MiFi mobile hotspot at the Sprint Innovation Center in Burlingame, Calif.

These action-packed, graphically-demanding games are the perfect way to show the quality of the network we’re announcing today – and the kind of services you’ll be able to enjoy on it in the months and years to come.
