Sprint has become the first US mobile operator to offer faster wireless speeds over an EV-DO Rev A wireless network. According to PC World, this marks the first time mobile users in the US will see a “meaningful” increase in speed.
Unfortunately for most, access to the EV-DO Rev. A network is only available to folks with a Sprint-branded HTC Mogul touchscreen smartphone who download the upgrade patch.
The current EV-DO high-speed cell phone network delivers speeds of 400 Kbps-700 Kbps. Rev. A increases the speeds to 600 Kbps-1,400 Kbps, PC World says.
