Sprint Begins Revision A Rollout
Oct 24, 2006, 11:21 AM by (staff)
Sprint today launched EV-DO Revision A in San Diego, and with it has begun its official rollout of the faster 3G data service. Higher data speeds are now available at no additional cost to data subscribers with one of four cards: Novatel S720 and U720, Pantech PX-500, and Sierra Wireless Aircard 595. Customers with those cards can expect 450-850 kbps download and 400-700 kbps upload in San Diego. Sprint expects to launch Revision A upgrades in additional markets this year and complete their upgrade network-wide by third quarter of 2007. Sprint will launch upgraded data networks in the following cities before the end of the year: Baltimore, Boston, Buffalo, Denver, Detroit, Hartford, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, New York City, Newark/Trenton, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Providence, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C.

EVDOrA will be available to 158 Million next year.
When not under EVDO coverage, expect speeds of 144kbs (1xRTT)
UMTS: 384kbs (with burst speeds of 2mbs)
EDGE is available to 250 million customers
UMTS is available to 70 million customers
By the numbers, Sprint appears to be superior.

Therefore, your numbers are skewed.
What happened to "Up to 6.0 mbps"?
Only a 50mbps increase at minimum is somewhat depressing.
3.1 Mbps peak downlink is the most I've ever seen touted for rev. A, and that's been the peak rate consistently since it was announced, AFAIK. If you saw 6, it had to be a typo.
