Good news to Las Vegas, Milwaukee and Seattle residents. The elderly residents of San Diego aren't the only ones with fast mobile internet, as Sprint's just activated EV-DO Rev. A in your cities, allowing you to watch YouTube videos of monkeys urinating in their own mouths at 800-1000kbps instead of the old 153kbps you were puttering along with. I mean, c'mon, having the video pause half-stream in order for the rest to load really killed the mood.

actually 153kbps download speed is not EVDO, but is 1X (or CMDA2000). EVDO (not rev.A) caps out at 2.4mbps (down), giving you a realistic speed of around 500-800kbps. Rev.A i think caps out at 2.8mbps or something, but the real treat to it is the upload speed, which is a lot higher. Non-rev.a upload speed is 153kbps i believe. Wikipedia has all the numbers.
