Spring Into Rev A
"CDMA EV-DO Revision A" is a radio network upgrade to existing EV-DO systems, which are based on the earlier Revision O standard. Revision A is expected to crank peak burst rates up to 3.1 Mbit/s on the downlink and 1.8 Mbit/s on the uplink, using a 1.25 MHz channel.
Sprint first launched the network upgrade in October 2006. (See Verizon's Rev A Gets Carded.) A Sprint spokeswoman says that the Rev A now covers 13,453 cities and 234 million people in the U.S. The operator originally promised Rev A handsets for 2007. Better late than never, I say.
