Although Sprint isn’t considered the top wireless carrier in the country, it’s still very much in the race, and its new ‘Spark’ technology could very well make it a very appealing option.
Sprint claims that its new technology reaches peak rates of 50 to 60Mbps.
How long will we have to wait to see Spark? Well it’s actually rolling out today in five select regions: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and Tampa. It’s also expected to reach over 100 million Americans by the end of 2014, and will be implemented in over 100 cities over the next three years.
However, current smartphones won’t be able to take advantage of this new technology. Devices have to have tri-band hardware— the first of such devices should be arriving from LG, HTC, and Samsung in November.
Hopefully this new technology will make data speeds a whole lot faster not only for Sprint customers, but for all wireless users everywhere.
