Sprint Spark LTE Rollout Expands, HD Voice Coming Soon

Sprint activated 20 new 4G LTE markets as well as the upcoming availability of HD Voice.

Sprint Spark, which leverages carrier aggregation across three bands, is designed to deliver peak wireless speeds of 60 Mbps today on capable devices, with the potential for speeds three times as fast by late next year. 

HD Voice is also now available to customers in Provo, and will soon be available in Trenton. HD Voice capability requires call between two Sprint HD Voice enabled devices on upgraded areas of the Sprint network.  Sprint said its HD Voice will provide a better experience than a landline.  A typical phone without HD Voice offers four octaves of sound, but a phone with HD Voice offers seven (10 octaves is considered perfect hearing).

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

Sprint Spark is available in the following 18 cities: Austin, Texas; Baltimore; Chicago; Dallas; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Fort Worth, Texas; Houston; Jacksonville, Fla.; Kansas City, Kan./Mo.; Los Angeles; Miami; New York; Philadelphia; Provo, Utah; Salt Lake City; San Antonio; Tampa, Fla; and Trenton, N.J.
