Sprint (NYSE:S), a provider of Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS), announced on Monday its selection by the state of Wisconsin to continue providing assistive communications services to individuals in the state who are deaf, have hearing loss or a speech disability, for another three years plus two one-year renewals.
Financial details of this selection were not available.
Sprint has reportedly provided relay services in Wisconsin since 2009.
According to Sprint, its Relay service in Wisconsin allows hearing callers and users of text-telephone (TTY), CapTel and Speech-to-Speech (STS) to communicate with one another through trained Relay operators, particularly when the hearing party does not have specialised telecommunications equipment.
Also, Sprint has served as the nation's largest 711 TRS provider for the past 23 years and currently provides relay services in 35 states and exclusively for the federal government, Puerto Rico, New Zealand and the US Virgin Islands.
