Sprint Adds 6 New Spark Markets

Sprint 4G LTE

U.S. carrier Sprint announced the availability of Sprint Spark in six new markets. The newly added markets are Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio and Fort Lauderdale. Sprint Spark is designed to accommodate all of Sprint’s spectrum bands on a single device.

Sprint plans to deploy Sprint Spark in about 100 of America’s largest cities during the next three years. By the end of this year, 100 million Americans are expected to have Sprint Spark coverage.

Announced at the end of 2013, LG G2 will become tri-band enabled through a software update later this month. Nexus 5 by LG, NETGEAR LTE Gateway 6100D and LG G Flex will soon join the initial group of Sprint Spark-enabled devices. Sprint currently offers six Sprint Spark-capable devices, including Samsung Galaxy MEGA™, HTC One® max, and NETGEAR® Zing Mobile Hotspot™.

As part of Network Vision program, Sprint is redeploying its 800MHz spectrum for LTE and 3G, delivering improved in-building coverage for voice and data. Sprint expects the rollout of Network Vision to be largely complete by mid-2014.
