Sprint Launches LTE Services in Chicago
Published on: 10th Dec 2013
USA based Sprint says that it has switched on its LTE network in the city of Chicago along with its own branded "Spark" service that increases the average mobile download speeds.
Sprint Spark combines spectrum capacity and network technologies and is expected to deliver a tri-band LTE service, including wireless peak speeds of 50-60 Megabits per second today on capable devices, with increasing speed potential over time.
"Sprint's investment in upgrading our network infrastructure has required a massive team of dedicated engineers and technicians to systematically install new, modern 3G and 4G LTE-capable equipment," said Bob Azzi, Sprint chief network officer. "It took us more than a year to complete and, although there have been some service interruptions, we expect our customers will find the improved Sprint wireless experience worth it."
The company added that it plans to deploy Sprint Spark in about 100 of America's largest cities during the next three years, with availability today in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Tampa and Miami.
