evdo speed for tethering 6700 vs broadband card

Hello all,

I have a quick question about Sprints EVDO speed. I know the Sprint site states that the download speed is 600kbs-1.4mbs but via my 6700 tethered to my laptop, with full signal strength, the best I can get is ~ 115kbs. Would a broadband card and separate data plan give me the advertised speed on the Sprint site? I looked all through the Sprint site and could not find anything stating that there are different EVDO speeds in different areas. It only states that you either have it in your area or not.

Thanks for any info. you can send my way,

i've been fighting this issue for months. my area is supposed to be covered by rev.a. even in areas where i have 100% signal strength i'm getting at the most 800kb down. their speeds in my area (southwest florida) are almost laughable. and when you call them for support, none of the techs know anything about anything. it's just absurd.

Re: evdo speed for tethering 6700 vs broadband card

rwcj63,

Well at least you're getting speeds 8 times faster than I am. I'm still trying to find out whether there would be a speed difference by using a broadband card vs tethering my 6700. Or if EVDO has different speeds in different areas. Their maps on their site just show whether you have EVDO or not and do not list any speed differences. So I guess that EVDO should be at their advertised speed. I'm probably wrong on this though since I'm only getting ~ 115kbs download speeds through my 6700. It may be a device issue though. I'm not sure what type EVDO the 6700 has. Maybe the 6700 will only download at ~ 115kbs. I don't know and that is why I posted the question.

Even then, it should get higher speeds than that.

I'm usually able to get upwards of 750-1500kbps. I think the main difference is that certain areas will not have rev. a (but you should still get decent speeds). Other than that, they should be pretty equal in my experience.

Re: evdo speed for tethering 6700 vs broadband card

The hardware on the 6700 only supports evdo revision 0. Most of the broadband cards and the 6800 and 6900 support evdo rev A. In a rev a coverage area you should see a speed increase especially upstream with an evdo rev A enabled device.

Re: evdo speed for tethering 6700 vs broadband card

Thanks for all of the replys!!

I'm going to be traveling in a few days and I will test it out in the Ann Arbor/Detriot area. Maybe it's just where I'm at. I'm going to be upgrading to the Sprint Rapheal/Touch Pro when it comes out so I suppose it's not worth spending the money for the broadband card and the $59.99 bucks a month for 5gig of data.

Did anyone ever come up with a straight answer on whether Sprint will be able to keep track of your tethering on the new PPCs or not?

Re: evdo speed for tethering 6700 vs broadband card

Rev-A speeds will vary dependent upon your signal strength, # of T1's being used at the site for DO and capacity of the sector that you are using.
