    Well I was wondering if anyone has used a 1XRTT network and how the speed of data is and call quality is....

    I know what the speed is suppose to be with 1XRTT but was wondering what you really get in the real world.....

    Thanks!!

    some guy on the sprint usenet forums has a sanyo 5150 with the latest software upgrade. its not even supposed to be 3g data compatible (according to sprint) but if you know the debug menu code it pops up a menu with 1x rate set [​IMG] he set it to 144kbs packet and hooked it up to his laptop in kansas city.....and said his laptop was flying on the internet.....ill try to find his post and post it here.

    With 1xrtt the speed is pretty darn good. It averages anywhere between 56-90k with bursts up to 144. When it hits 144 it is actually faster than a dsl line. The voice quality I did not notice any difference at all, but it is supposed to increase capacity leading to fewer dropped calls. By the way I am with Verizon and I used it in the detroit area.

    DSL lines generally start at about 640kpbs I thought..... (mine is 768kpbs)

    ISDN would be reasonable - IIRC they are 128kpbs....
