Sprint has signed a four-year agreement to continue providing voice and data services to Smithfield Foods, a processor and marketer of fresh pork and processed meats.

This follows a two-year relationship during which time Sprint has provided Smithfield with voice, frame relay, IP (Internet Protocol), Dial IP, switched digital, audio and video conferencing and wireless services.

Given concerns about the rising volume of spam email, Smithfield Foods will now also use Sprint Email Protection Services, which will block spam from entering the corporate network infrastructure or reaching the email servers.
