Sprint Expands Spark and HD Voice to Salt Lake City and Jacksonville Customers

Sprint’s 4G LTE network may be notoriously slow, but the carrier is making inroads to improve the situation with its continued rollout of  Spark. Today, Sprint announced that Spark connectivity is now available in Salt Lake City and Jacksonville, Florida, and that HD Voice would accompany the deployment. The expansion broadens Sprint’s LTE reach to 382 markets, and is a sign the carrier is well on its way to achieving its coverage goal of 250 million people by mid-year.

Spark is a tri-band LTE solution that leverages several different wireless spectra to improve  speeds; Sprint says the technology can help capable devices reach a peak of 60Mbps. HD Voice is an unrelated but equally welcome improvement that enhances the quality of phone calls.

In order to take advantage of both Sprint Spark and HD Voice, you’ll need a compatible handset. Here’s a list:

  • Samsung Galaxy S4
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini
  • Samsung Galaxy Mega
  • LG G2
  • LG G Flex
  • HTC One max
  • Nexus 5
