Sprint Spark now accessible in Philadelphia and Baltimore, HD Voice in the coming weeks
Sprint has announced that customers in Philadelphia and Baltimore now have access to Sprint Spark, a unique combination of advanced network capabilities built for data delivering peak wireless speeds of 60Mbps today on capable devices, with the potential for speeds three times as fast by late next year. In the coming weeks, Sprint's network in Baltimore and Philadelphia will also include the availability of High-Definition (HD) Voice, a new Sprint standard for mobile phones where background noise is virtually eliminated and sound quality is dramatically enhanced. HD Voice is designed to provide a better experience than a landline. 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).

Those not familiar with the Sprint Spark should know that it is a unique combination of network technologies, spectrum capacity and tri-band devices designed to greatly improve the performance of video and other bandwidth-intensive applications, including new generations of online gaming, virtual reality and advanced cloud services. Sprint Spark is the difference between being the first to post and the last to like. It’s stutter-free video chat on-the-go and mobile gaming that leaves lag behind.

With the announcement, Sprint Spark is available in 14 markets. In addition to Philadelphia and Baltimore, Sprint Spark is available in the following markets: Los Angeles; New York; Chicago; Houston; Dallas; Austin, Texas; San Antonio, Texas; Fort Worth, Texas; Miami; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Tampa, Fla.; and Kansas City, Mo.. Sprint Spark is part of Sprint's all-new 4G LTE network, which now covers more than 200 million people across the country.

Customers with Sprint Spark-enabled devices can select the new Sprint Framily Plan – a pricing program available to new and existing customers that lets consumers decide who they consider family. The more people added to the group, up to 10 phone lines, the greater the savings for everyone on the plan.

For one line of service, new Sprint customers pay $55 per month per line for unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data while on the Sprint network (excluding taxes and surcharges). For each additional new Sprint customer who joins the Framily group, the cost per person goes down $5 a month up to a maximum monthly discount of $30 per line.

For only $20 per month per line, Sprint Framily Plan members can buy up to unlimited data, and they are eligible to get a new phone every year. Unlimited features are while on the Sprint network.

Customers of Sprint’s prepaid brands will also benefit from Sprint Spark. Virgin Mobile USA will offer its first Sprint Spark device when it launches the NETGEAR Mingle Mobile Hotspot, the first tri-band device available for U.S. prepaid customers. It is expected to be available this quarter on Virgin Mobile’s competitive Broadband2Go no-contract plans, which include daily service for $5 a day. Broadband2Go also offers monthly data plans with 1.5GB for $25 or 6GB for $55.

Mingle lets customers take Wi-Fi when they’re out and about, accommodating up to 10 wireless devices simultaneously. It is a dual-mode 3G/4G LTE device, providing up to 12.5 hours active time (1,800mAh battery) and featuring secure access with password protection, plus a 1.77-inch LCD display screen.
