Sprint Spark

Sprint customers in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Jacksonville, Flordia, rejoice! As long as you have a capable device, you can now enjoy Spark LTE speeds and HD voice. Sprint announced early this morning that the network was upgraded in these two cities to support these services, bringing customers in these cities into an elite fold.

Spark is also available here:

  • Austin, Texas
  • Baltimore, Maryland
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • Dallas, Texas
  • Fort Lauderdale, Florida
  • Fort Worth, Texas
  • Houston, Texas
  • Kansas City, Missouri/Kansas

Currently, phones capable of taking advantage of the Spark network include the HTC One max, the Google Nexus 5 by LG, LG G2, the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini, and the Samsung Galaxy Mega. Spark takes advantage of Sprint’s Clearwire spectrum in the 2500-2600MHz range to increase speeds, range, and capacity. It also combines spectrum from LTE on the 800MHz and 1900MHz ranges.

Regarding HD voice, Sprint says that it 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. 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).

So, Jacksonville and Salt Lake City readers – how’s your Sprint service lately?
