The Uneducated Masses

If you don't know what you're talking about, you shouldn't be posting in this forum.

LOL some of the things that have been spouted off in here are just plain ignorant.

That being said, GO SPRINT! Proud to be a part o the company that's about to revolutionize the wireless industry.

I agree. In this forum though, I don't see many stupid people. This one isn't as bad as some of the others. I think most people who read on this topic either know or don't know about the wireless technologies. Yeah we see a lot of gsm lovers, but you ...

With this new Wimax lauch sprint is now winning any race by a mile versus a few feet. Speed already has the largest coverage area both voice and data, Wimax is just a larger enhancement!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ better watch out competitor ๐Ÿ‘€
Much, if not most of Sprint's coverage is through other companies towers and networks. We call this a roaming agreement.
w00t! Go T-Mobile!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Keeping it quiet

I wouldn't count VZW out. I am sure they have something up their sleeve that will be an equal competitor.

They are defiantly not going to let HSUPA, HSDPA, or wimax launch with out their own very high speed network.
They might. AT&T and Verizon don't see the *need* for the high speed internet right now I don't believe. Sprint wants to do it because they want to be the company that large companies turn to for their internet needs and they want to be on the cutting...

just a hunch

Sprint should just get it over with and buy them.....that's my gut feeling and that's all! Thanks for reading.
You mean buy Clearwire right? They really should. I agree 100%.

just when I rule out switching to CDMA, SPRINT has to stick it to me. Good thing is my contract with the AT&T devil for my soul is up early 2008.
Well, have fun with the locked down CDMA phones ;)
GSM/HSDPA/LTE equals freedom!!!!

I will never buy another carrier branded/locked phone again.

will this also affect helio as well ๐Ÿคจ
Probably not until late 2008 at the earliest. Sprint will want to get most of the top markets covered before they start letting anyone else use the new network.
helio will probably be bye bye in a year.... ๐Ÿ˜ข
sales not to hot from what i've heard.... ๐Ÿ˜ข

Anybody know?

Does anyone remember which company it is that's providing future cable and/or other multimedia services to Sprint? Please give me a link if you can.
Comcast, Time Warner and Cox

Its still not as fast the HSDPA can be!!!
Well, sort of. HSDPA has a max downlink of 14.4 Mbps and uplink of 384 kbps. WiMax has a theoretical downlink and uplink of 70 Mbps.

Now what you are thinking of is HSUPA which has a theoretical 28 Mbps downlink and 5.76 Mbps uplink.

I don't k...
What??? The fastest HSDPA as of right now is 14.4 Mbps. If you beam the information they target it to eventually meet 200Mbps (remember thats Beaming it) While WiMax is still new technology it will soon reach 70 Mbps. The HSDPA has to receive many up...
yeah but atleast rev a is more available anyways ๐Ÿคฃ

atleast i can say one thing about wimax... it can be a complete data phone and use voip for data. which may mean barely dropping calls and not rely on gsm tower with high speeds

Okay I found this on a website, thought I'd share it.

As both systems use air interfaces radically different from those already deployed, neither standard can operate in the same physical spectrum as prior standards, though an FDD version of HSOPA can share licensed cellular spectrum allocations as long as those allocations are greater than the 6.25 MHz (5 MHz for W-CDMA and 1.25 MHz for HSOPA) minimum required for both standards to co-exist.

In practice, most UMTS networks should be possible to migrate at the tower level to HSOPA without the need to obtain more spectrum, except where legal barriers exist preventing the use of non-IMT-2000 air interface technologies.

A major reason for the shift from CDMA is the ability of OFDM to m...
so in other words, WiMAX is a better because it will have better coverage than HSOPA. Am I correct?
For those interested, HSOPA is a subset of the LTE set of standards. LTE is still in the development stages so we won't be seeing this releasing on a U.S. carrier until after WiMax is nationwide.

Thank you ClearWire. I have read about this technology when it was first announced. Its been a worry of mine that Sprint may give up on the 4g WiMax technology. Now this really screws up the other carriers of getting enough of the spectrum to go toward WiMax. Sprint already has enough of the 2.5 Ghz spectrum to cover most of the Internet. While Clearwire also owns much of it, I'm sure they will buy some more spectrum when it gets released later this year. Now I can securely laugh at all the TM, Verizon, and At&t users, while I download my content. Ha ha ha ha!! ๐Ÿคฃ
Sorry I meant U.S not internet LOL
sounds cool but I'm don't understand how wimax will work? Can someone explain?
