Sprint says that it has upgraded the Sprint Power Vision Network with the faster EV DO Revision A technology in the San Diego market making it the first market in the country to have the technology commercially available. San Diego is the first of 21 markets where Sprint will roll out EV DO Revision A this year with coverage expected to reach more than 40 million people.
Sprint Power Vision users in these markets should experience significantly faster average upload speeds of 300-400 kbps (compared with 50-70 kbps of current EV-DO networks). Average download speeds should also increase to 450-800 kbps from 400-700 kbps. By 3Q 2007, Sprint's Power Vision network is expected to be completely upgraded to the faster EV-DO Revision A.
"Sprint's mobile broadband leadership is unmatched. Not only do we have the largest mobile broadband network, but with the upgraded EV-DO Revision A technology Sprint Power Vision will also be the fastest wireless broadband network in the country," said Kathy Walker, chief network officer for Sprint. "The power of Sprint's networks, especially with this EV-DO Revision A upgrade, allows Sprint to deliver a mobile broadband experience to our customers that no other carrier can provide."
