Re: CDMA to LTE Data Handover Completed..

Sprint doesn't have 4G, even if they claims that is is a 4G carrier. 4G is going to be a constant with LTE or WI-MAX, both will be a ip based network getting speeds of up to 10-12Mbps download and 2-5Mbps upload. In sprints crazy effort to regain customers they are claiming that REV-A= 4G which plain isnt true. its the 1st revision to EVDO< all they are doing is buffing up their network and making all their towers REV-A capable. Verizon is going with LTE(long term evolution). There is a substancial difference between the two networks and authentication on the server end of the data connection. The only phone provider currently that has manufactures a device that can support the LTE network currently is Sony-Erricsson. Either way eiher 4G technology is not going to hit the states until at least 3rd quarter 2010.
Like all good philosophers in search of truth she is always looking for new perspectives.
