    Sprint Powers Up faster broadband network in 10 more markets


    12/12/2006

    Sprint has upgraded the Sprint Power Vision Network, the nation's
    largest wireless broadband network covering well over 180 million
    people, with the faster EV-DO Revision A technology in 10 additional
    markets. With today's launch in New York City, Los Angeles, San
    Francisco, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Detroit, Denver, Baltimore,
    Providence and New Jersey, Sprint now covers more than 60 million
    people in 20 markets with the upgraded mobile broadband network -
    surpassing its previously announced year-end goal of 40 million people.


    Sprint Power Vision users in the 20 upgraded major metropolitan 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.

    "Customers value mobility and they value speed, and Sprint's upgraded
    Power Vision Network is unmatched in delivering both," says Kathy
    Walker, chief network officer for Sprint. "We offer the largest
    coverage area and the fastest data speeds, so our customers have the
    power to send and receive information at DSL-like speeds without being
    tethered to their desks or stuck inside their homes or offices."

    As Sprint's mobile broadband network continues to grow, so does its
    device portfolio with the addition of the only EV-DO Revision A-capable
    USB modem. The Sprint Mobile Broadband USB Modem by Novatel Wireless
    Ovation U720 that plugs into the USB port of any compatible laptop.

    Previously, Sprint announced that the faster mobile broadband network
    was available in San Diego, Seattle, Las Vegas, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh,
    Hartford, Boston, Buffalo/Rochester, Sacramento and Salt Lake City.
    By 3Q 2007, Sprint's Power Vision network is expected to be
    completely upgraded to the faster EV-DO Revision A.

    Do you, by chance, know if this new EVDO Rev A requires new
    handsets to benefit current EVDO users? Thanks.

    Wow ... it has only been one year since EVDO was pushed. How long to Rev B
    and the next generation handsets?

    Anyone know, will 4G WiMax be strictly data, or data+voice, and
    (if the latter) will it eventually replace Sprint's CDMA network?

    Re: EVDO REV A

    The EVDO REV A roll out is not scheduled for completion til about
    Novemebr of 2007

    Early on as the upgrade goes it will mostly be limited to the airport
    areas and business districts, then eventially spread out to the rest of
    the current EVDO REV 0 footprint. This being said I would not expect
    the 'next geneeration' of it or the handsets until well into 2008 or
    2009 at a minimum.

    Yes, a new handset is required to benefit from the Revision A upgrades.
    Specifically, Rev 0 equipment can't take advantage of increased upload
    speed. But, a Rev 0 handset will still perform the same wasy it would
    on a Rev 0 network.

    Personally, I'd rather Sprint finish the Revision 0 rollout before they
    focus on Revision A. There's still tons of places that are 1x only.
