Sprint upgrades Kansas City, Wichita to EvDO Rev. A technology

Sprint has continued its rollout of wireless EvDO Revision A technology by adding the Kansas City and Wichita, KS, metropolitan areas this month.

EvDO Revision A technology offers faster upload and download speeds than its predecessor. Upload speeds with the new technology can reach 500kb/s as compared with 50kb/s to 70kb/s, and download speeds can now hit a maximum of 1.4Mb/s as opposed to the previous 400kb/s to 700kb/s.

Plans call for Sprint to complete the nationwide upgrade of its mobile broadband network to EvDO Revision A sometime in the third quarter of this year.

The broadband wireless service could augment backhaul of news filed from the field using a store-and-forward approach as well as provide the return channel for FTP links between a station's newsroom computers and ENG crews in the field.
