Sprint may have lost 360, 000 customers over the last quarter, but it’s looking to stem that tide with the introduction of Sprint Spark, an enhanced LTE service it says will deliver “unprecedented speeds” to its cellphone users. The company demoed the service running at 1Gbps this morning, however, customers can expect “50-60 Megabits per second (Mbps) peak speeds today with increasing speed potential over time.” Sprint says the service will not only enhance video and bandwidth-hogging apps, but says it’s ready to take on virtual reality and “futuristic apps” — whatever those might be. Spark is dependent on tri-band wireless devices , which are intended to seamlessly switch between Sprint’s 800MHz, 1.9GHz and 2.5GHz cellular bands, depending on your location and which apps you’re using. The rollout begins today with limited availability in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Tampa and Miami, though Sprint promises to extend that service to 100 US cities by 2016. The HTC One max, LG G2, Samsung Galaxy Mega and Samsung Galaxy S 4 mini will all be available with Spark starting November 8th. For more info, check out the source links below.
