Article Comments  79  

Nov 7, 2006, 3:42 PM   by (staff)

Sprint today announced that three more metro areas in addition to San Diego can take advantage of faster EV-DO Revision A technology. Subscribers can now get faster download and upload speeds in airports and major business districts of Las Vegas, Milwaukee, and Seattle provided they have a compatible data card. Sprint currently offers three Revision A capable cards as well as a USB modem. Sprint intends to launch Revision A in 21 cities by the year's end. However they have not stated whether entire cities will be covered at that time or simply major business districts in each area.

Round One to Sprint!

MMhmm. Here we go again.

Sprint's powerful EVDO data network is at it again. In FOUR major metro areas. Where are you Verizon?

What the five fingers say to Verizon?
SLAP!

Ha!
That's true and I am pleasantly surprised that Sprint now has the largest voice and mobile broadband calling area in the US. For all the TV commercials for Verizon & Cingular touting coverage, it's great to see that it is Sprint with the largest, mos...

Mr. Sprint Guy James,

Do me a favor and lets find out who owns the CDMA network that Sprint uses. Do your research then get back to this forum because obviously you don't know whats going on.

Props to Sprint.

I just wanted to add how ridiculous these forums get at times. All these fanboys act like you're insulting their mother if you say anything remotely negative towards their provider and/or employer. It's funny and to be honest, pa...

...We all know this but some might not admit it

Yeah, I get it Sprint has pwnt all the other carriers and I am sure Verizon will be next to follow suit HOWEVER when Cingular follows suit by upgrading their 3.5G network with the addition of HSPUA it will be better than both the carriers. I mean seriously Cingular does everything better. Their PTT pwns the others carriers, even NEXTEL, but it was launched latest and still hasn't picked up get...and their PTT phones suck for now. And yes TMOBILE will launch their network but by that time 4G will be ubiquitous.
I do not think Verizon will follow suit because they lack a lot of content and speed on their network. Cingular will go to HSDPA? Ok and? Sprint will go to WIMAX, which is better than HSDPA in every single way possible. Verizon does not have any plans...

If you build it, they will come!

Which ever carrier launches true high speed wireless access(upload & download) will win business. There is a need and we have become used to broadband speeds with DSL & Cable. What will be interesting is how others will follow. Only time will tell!
And Sprint is well on their way to becoming the best in data delivery. Period.

Even WITH Cingular and HSDPA, Sprint's Rev A is the cellular industry's stepping stone into the future of high-speed mobility.

Verizon can compete, if it really want...
