Leap Wireless International and LightSquared have entered into a long-term 4G roaming agreement that will allow Cricket, Leap’s operating subsidiary, to supplement the LTE coverage that Cricket plans to deploy across its own networks over the next few years with LTE roaming services from LightSquared.??

“Our business progress demonstrates how data services are increasingly important to our customers, as evidenced by our customers’ significant uptake of smartphones and data-focused, higher-ARPU service plans,” said Doug Hutcheson, Leap’s president and CEO, in a statement. “We intend to deploy our own LTE networks beginning this year to complement the existing nationwide 3G services we currently offer to customers. This new roaming arrangement will allow us to offer customers an even-greater 4G service area as LightSquared expands its own network.”
