Sprint expands 'Spark' to six new markets Sprint has expanded its higher speed, higher bandwidth "Spark" LTE network to six new markets.
The network is now available in 11 major markets, and Sprint noted that they plan to make the service available to its Virgin Mobile prepaid customers, as well.

Having initially launched last year in NY, LA, Chicago, Miami and Tampa, the network is now also available in Austin, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.

The network promises "wireless peak data speeds of up to 50 60 Mbps" although the speeds are likely to be reduced the more people access the network.

"Sprint Spark is all about performance," said Stephen Bye, chief technology officer for Sprint. "When we bring Sprint Spark into a market, it is like trading up to the fastest sports car on the showroom floor. I am excited to see where we will take this technology in 2014 because I know we are bringing our customers an unprecedented network experience."
