Sprint Nextel Becomes First Major U.S. Carrier to Launch Faster CDMA Data Service


“CDMA EV-DO Revision A” is a radio network upgrade to existing EV-DO systems, which are based on the earlier Revision O standard. Revision A is expected to crank peak burst rates up to 3.1 Mbit/s on the downlink and 1.8 Mbit/s on the uplink, using a 1.25MHz channel. Sprint says that the new network will offer faster average download speeds of 450 to 800 Kbit/s, with average upload speeds of 300 to 400 Kbit/s. Typical download speeds for current EV-DO networks are in the 300 to 500Kbit/s range. So the upgrade will mean faster wireless access to email and other applications for the enterprise user.
