Sprint today announced that 11 new cities now have access to Sprint Spark, the enhanced tri-band 4G LTE service that the carrier launched late last year. The new market enhancements will make Sprint's service more reliable and widely available in the affected markets, as well as introduce data speeds as fast as 60 Mbps, though the consistency of such speeds may not be visible.
The following markets gained Sprint Spark today:
- Austin, Texas
- Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
- Fort Worth, Texas
- Los Angeles
- New York
- San Antonio, Texas
- Tampa, Fla.
Customers with Spark-compatible devices, like the HTC One Max or LG G Flex, will see a boost in network performance in the aforementioned markets. The LG G2 and Google Nexus 5 will be updated soon to be made compatible. Sprint says its prepaid customers on Boost, payLo, and Virgin Mobile USA will also benefit from the change because it is introducing overall improvements in 3G and 4G LTE service as part of its Sprint Spark vision.
