Sprint’s main selling point versus AT&T and Verizon is that the carrier offers truly unlimited data, which means you don’t have to watch the meter or worry about overage fees. Sprint’s growing 4G LTE network already covers some 230 markets nationwide and the company recently activated its enhanced LTE network Spark that delivers blistering download speeds. Spark will be deployed in 100 cities across the U.S. over the next three years, but people in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Tampa and Miami could already be seeing Spark speeds in your neighborhood.
