Sprint Spark receives Most Innovative 4G Service award

This week Sprint was awarded a 2014 Leading Lights Award in the category of Most Innovative 4G Service for Sprint Spark. The award is given to the mobile operator that has launched the most innovative 4G LTE service for its customers during the past year. Sprint was honoured at a gala dinner attended by hundreds of communications industry executives at The Adler Planetarium in Chicago following the June 17 kick-off of Light Reading’s Big Telecom Event.

“The standard of the entries in all 16 Leading Lights categories this year was exceptionally high, so the winners have really had to prove themselves worthy with great submissions that have been able to stand up to thorough scrutiny. A Leading Lights award is a true mark of excellence,” said Light Reading Editor-in-Chief Ray Le Maistre.

Judging was conducted by Light Reading’s editors and the analyst team from Heavy Reading.
