Sprint Confirms WiMax Upload Speed Boost
In an email to Phone Scoop, Sprint spokesperson Stephanie Vinge confirmed that the company plans to increase the upload speeds available on its WiMax network. She said, "Soon the uplink speed cap on all existing Sprint dual mode and single mode 4G mobile devices will be increased from 1.0 to 1.5 Mbps. Customers may notice uplink speeds as much as 50% faster after the speed cap is raised. We haven’t stated a specific date this will take place."
Oooohhhh big whoomp 1.5 upload
I'll still be using my D Charge though.
On Verizon LTE I get 3-7mbps upload speeds, sometimes even a little higher
1. Clear WiMAX operates in 10 MHz of spectrum; VZW LTE operates in 20 MHz of spectrum. On a per MHz basis...
Bottom line is it's easy to provide quick speeds when no one is using the network.
It's Clearwire, not Sprint.
BTW, may Clearwire increase the outgoing to 3Mbps?
