Sprint announced the immediate availability of EV-DO Revision A for Wichita and Kansas City market. While I no longer reside in those two cities, I still fly in an out visiting friends and family. Thanks for the EV-DO Rev A love – Sprint!
Customers in Sprint’s new Revision A market enjoy upload speeds of 350 to 500 Kbps and an average download speed of 600 Kbps to 1.4Mbps. This is a significant jump, compared to regular EV-DO networks crawling at 50 to 70 Kbps up and 400 to 700 Kbps down.
