Sprint Mogul

As you know from previous posts, I'm currently using Sprint's version of the HTC Mogul called the PPC6800 running Windows Mobile 6.0.

Up to now, the broadband speed has been pretty decent. About 1/2 DSL speeds or better.

The other day HTC announced the upgrade to EVDO Rev A -- the true DSL speed network.  I reflashed my firmware pretty smoothly and the upgrade went well.  Did I get double speed downloads?  Well, it seems snappier, quicker connects, overall a little faster but not 2X.

I just now did a speed test using and it reported 713 kbit/sec with a 400K file and 664 kbit/sec with a 1MB file.  Not too bad.

Faster than that 1200 baud Hayes modem I bought for $695 in 1983.

You probably weren't getting a Rev. A tower when you tested. That is the same speed you'd get with Rev. 0. You'd need to get above 700Kb/s and closer to 1.4Mb/s to realize Rev. A speeds. I get close to 800Kb/s at times on my unflashed Mogul (Rev. 0).
