Sprint 4G LTE expands in 20 new markets

Sprint today announced 20 new 4G LTE markets, bringing faster data speeds to customers in such locations as Bridgeport, Stamford, Norwalk, Myrtle Beach, S.C., Omaha, Peoria, Sarasota and Bradenton and expects to cover 250 million people with 4G LTE by mid-year.

Sprint today also announced Sprint Spark in Provo, Utah and Trenton as well as the upcoming availability of HD Voice.

Sprint Spark is an enhanced LTE service that’s built for data and designed to deliver peak wireless speeds of 60Mbps today on capable devices, with the potential for speeds three times as fast by late next year.

With its unique combination of network technologies, spectrum capacity and tri-band devices, Sprint Spark is designed to greatly improve the performance of video and other bandwidth-intensive applications, including new generations of online gaming, virtual reality and advanced cloud services. It enables stutter-free video chat on-the-go and mobile gaming that leaves lag behind.

HD Voice is also now available to customers in Provo, and will soon be available in Trenton. HD Voice is a new Sprint standard for mobile phones where background noise is virtually eliminated and sound quality is dramatically enhanced. HD Voice is designed to provide a better experience than a landline.

“Sprint’s all-new network is providing our customers significantly better call quality and faster data speeds in more places,” said John Saw, chief network officer, Sprint.

“Customers in Provo and Trenton will be particularly pleased with the power of Sprint Spark – say goodbye to slow downloads and content that lags,” added Saw.

Sprint 4G LTE is available in 402 cities, also provides benefits to customers of Sprint’s prepaid brands – Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA.
