No spark on Nexus 5 in Houston


No spark on Nexus 5 in Houston

I have yet to see Spark and have done the 4.4.3 update.

The website coverage map shows I am in a BEST coverage area, but not TURBO.  This has been confirmed in several calls to customer care--"yes, you are in a Spark area.

300 Woerner Rd  Houston  77090

So, what gives?  I bought this phone 2/1/2014 because it was spark ready, which your website still lists.

Thank you for reaching out for assistance. After looking into the area, there has been some Spark enabled but not yet at the cell site closest to the location provided. We're working as quickly as possible to get network enhancements rolled out, including more Spark in more areas. Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Keep in mind that the Nexus 5 won't have the spark icon. You will need to either download a app that shows what band you are connected to or access the LTE engineering screen on your phone to view the band. I travel all over Houston and have had spark in most locations on my Nexus 5 with 4.4.3.
