USA based Sprint has expanded its LTE coverage to 20 more areas. The mobile network said that it expects to cover 250 million people with LTE by mid year.
Sprint today also announced Sprint Spark in Provo, Utah, and Trenton, N.J, as well as the upcoming availability of HD Voice.
Sprint Spark is an enhanced LTE service that's built for data and designed to deliver peak wireless speeds of 60Mbps today on capable devices, with the potential for speeds three times as fast by late next year.
HD Voice is also now available to customers in Provo, and will soon be available in Trenton. HD Voice is a new Sprint standard for mobile phones where background noise is virtually eliminated and sound quality is dramatically enhanced. 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).
"Sprint's all-new network is providing our customers significantly better call quality and faster data speeds in more places," said John Saw, chief network officer at Sprint. "Customers in Provo and Trenton will be particularly pleased with the power of Sprint Spark - say goodbye to slow downloads and content that lags."
