    I got to try Readylink this afternoon after an out of town business
    meeting. "Volley" latency is indeed 1 second. Regular wireless voice
    call to land line latency is 1/2 second so the overhead associated
    with Readylink is only an extra 1/2 second.

    For a half-duplex service this seems very usable to me.
    (I dread to think that teenage girls would use this to gab away to up
    to 5 friends simultaneously, unlimited!)

    I await Rat Shack to get their Readylink phones going. I'd like to get
    an FTP session going on the same tower to see what, if any, effect it
    would have on the latency, while talking to someone via Readylink at a
    different Rat Shack across town, on a different tower.

    Paul- what area of the country? This is a good report, but I wonder what
    the network traffic was like.

    To another phone in same room?

    Even Sprint admits its latency is unacceptable, and says its RL is not suitable
    for emergency services.

    Sprint apologists are grasping at straws to find something good about
    SprintPCS.

    Straws? What about totally fabricating what's being said,=20
    Sunshine? Where does Sprint PCS say the latency is=20

    If SprintPCS says: "It will take several seconds to establish the initial PCS
    Ready Link connection", I would tend not to accept anyone saying its 1 second.


    ========================*
    Here is what your own SprintPCS said about how good RL is:



    " PCS Ready Link may not be appropriate for use by providers of
    emergency services. It will take several seconds to establish the
    initial PCS Ready Link connection; users may experience slight delays
    in subsequent "in session" communications. Only one person can speak
    at a time when in session. PCS Ready Link calls are terminated when
    you press "End" or after approximately 20 seconds of inactivity. While
    in session, voice calls will go directly to voicemail. When making a
    voice call or using PCS Vision, PCS Ready Link calls will not be
    completed."

    ======================
    If SprintPCS says: "It will take several seconds to establish the initial PCS
    Ready Link connection", I would tend not to accept anyone saying its 1 second.

    Kansas City (Overland Park, to be exact). Just south of I-435 in a
    heavily urban area, lots of businesses, shopping malls. Cell traffic
    should be high.

    The real question what's that serving cell's capacity...

    May not be acceptable, especially since capacity is not dedicated to
    the emergency service. Haven't you ascertained that an emergency
    service and all its users, should take absolute control of any
    communications infrastructure whenever they need it? Imagine the
    complaints to SPCS when other users are shut out, all of a sudden, by
    an emergency event in a location requiring emergency service!

    That makes you a Sprint apologist, since you keep find it good enough
    to keep using their service. So, DSL GURU, by his own admission is a
    Sprint apologist.

    You know if you read you own post, the INITIAL connection may take a few
    seconds, That when the person if first trying to get to the other person.
    once the main connection has been established, the latency is around 1 -2
    seconds if even that. And no were in your "quote" of Sprint PCS did they say
    "It's not ready yet"

    Try it in Kansas City near the intersection of 435 & 35....

    Sprint said its not suitable for emergency services. Enough said.

    Then prove him wrong- he says its a second, and the reality of the situation
    is that it could be true. Sprint did a great job of setting a realistic
    expectation when they said it had latency problems- that doesn't mean it
    can't work better than expected.

    Prove him wrong? SprintPCS already posted that its wrong.

    I don't know if it is 1 second or not. Quite frankly, I don't care
    either but...

    Wow, Phille (DSL GURU, Weekend Sunshine, etc..) agrees with a Sprint
    press release and not some Joe Blow user actually using the service.
    Funny how 99.99999% of the time it is without question, the exact
    opposite. If anyone EVER had a question about Phille's true
    intentions or integity for making an educated decision on an issue, I
    think this sums it up.

    Disclaimer:
    I hate to reply to him but this was way too tempting. Time to go back
    into ignore mode.
