Re: What would like to see.

Sprint is generally really fast, I don't know why they get such a bad rap compared to Verizon. I guess that's the magic of pervasive 24/7 advertising.

tested right now with marginal signal tethered from my HTC Mogul. Rev A. market.

I agree, Sprint is a decent company.

Would anyone care to coment on latency, that is my biggest concern with EVDO, i find EVDO plenty fast for wireless(it is not my primary HSI connection). But playing FPS games on EVDO is very iffy. Thanks to anyone.

I generally average in the 110 - 130 ms range on Sprint EVDO. Xohm should be comparable to cable and DSL.

I've seen Sprint EV-DO as low as 50-60ms on the first hop and ~80ms to google. Im guessing 30-40ms on the first hop on XOHM but still no where nere 8ms as like my DSL line. I would like to see how much better his is for gaming also.

Ahh, Sprint is all about the area your in, and the tower your on. Here in Northern California, Sprints EVDO RevA services tend to feel way over subscribed. This test is with full 5 bar signal (200 Yards from the tower out my office window)Using the Novatel Express Card in a laptop:



And that is a good speed, as its still early in the day here.
