After nearly six months since Sprint advertised it has phones that use 4G data speeds, the wireless carrier has made that speed upgrade officially available for South Florida on Monday.

Sprint boasts its 4G network, which is available from Palm Beach to Miami, can browse the Web 10 times faster than its current 3G service.

Sprint's 4G network is now is 68 markets across the country, including Daytona Beach, Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa. Devices that can take advantage of the 4G speeds include its smartphones HTC Evo 4G and Samsung Epic 4G, mobile hotspot Overdrive, mobile broadband cards 250U and U600, netbook Dell Mini 10 and notebook Dell 11z. (Go to Sprint.com/4G to get details on each device.)

For anyone who wants to see 4G speeds in action on Sprint's 4G compatible devices, the carrier has demonstration kiosks set up until January 8 at Dadeland Mall, Dolphin Mall, Sawgrass Mills and The Mall at Wellington Green.

Verizon is expected to release it's version of 4G speeds for South Florida customers sometime in December.
