Sprint is yet again expanding its Spark LTE service. This time they’re going for the residents of the Kansas City, which BTW is Dan Hesse’s (Sprint CEO) home town market. The coverage is also extending to surrounding areas like Brookside, The Legends, downtown and Overland Park.
For those of you who missed it, Sprint Spark relies on three bands of LTE spectrum — 800MHz, 1.9GHz and 2.5GHz — to deliver faster network speeds and increased capacity. According to Now Network, Spark can deliver download speeds of up to 60Mbps today, with that number expected to triple by late 2015.
The service is currently available in 12 markets, including Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Worth, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Antonio, Tampa and Kansas City. Sprint’s goal is to hit 100 of the largest U.S. cities over the next 3 years.
Spark-compatible devices include the LG G Flex and NETGEAR LTE Gateway 6100D, as well as the HTC One max and Google Nexus 5 when they receive the firmware update.
