Joining Forces: UCP and Sprint Relay

Over the years Sprint Relay has responded to communication challenges in the lives of people with speech disabilities. UCP is excited to be in partnership with Sprint Relay to help promote the products and services of Sprint Relay while furthering UCP’s efforts to advance the accessibility movement for people with a spectrum of disabilities. This partnership will raise awareness of these various services and products available through Sprint Relay that can help people with a variety of hearing difficulties and people who have speech disabilities to communicate with friends and family and live as independently as possible.

Sprint is the largest and most technologically advanced Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) provider in the nation with more than 22 years of experience. Sprint Relay services are provided to persons who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind, or who have a speech disability, and give these individuals the ability to communicate on the phone or internet. Sprint’s experience in this field ensures Sprint Relay users receive quality service regardless of the type of relay service they are using. Sprint Relay service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with no restrictions on the number of calls placed or the length of calls. For more information, visit www.sprintrelay.com.
