Once your device is connected you can easily play online games from your device or even stream your favorite TV shows, movies in Full HD.
First tri-band smartphones that will join network operator’s line-up are: the Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy Mega, LG G2 and HTC One Max, all available November 8. Other select devices will also get upgraded to Spark via an OTA (over-the-air) update in the coming months. Compatible hotspots available now are the Netgear Zing Mobile Hotspot, Netgear 341U USB Modem and MiFi 500 LTE by Novatel.
The first cities connected to such technology are: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Tampa and Miami. These are the areas where Sprint Spark has coverage right now.
