Sprint today announced that it has completed a major upgrade of both its 3G and 4G networks in the metropolitan Chicago area. Sprint ripped out much of its legacy cell tower gear and replaced it with new equipment. The result, says Sprint, is stronger performance of its CDMA and LTE networks, including better voice calls and faster data. Sprint noted that it has worked hard to provide more coverage to sports arenas, major thoroughfares, shopping destinations, and business districts throughout the region. Last, Sprint said Sprint Spark, its next-generation LTE networking technology, is now widely available throughout the Chicago area. Spark soft-launched in limited fashion in late October. Sprint Spark relies on the company's three LTE bands and special network management technology to provide the fastest LTE speeds possible. In order to access Sprint Spark, customers need a tri-band LTE handset. To date, only the Samsung Galaxy Mega and S4 mini, and the LG G2 can access Spark.
