Great news for 4G device users on Sprint’s WiMAX network. According to a leaked photograph of a Sprint memo, the current 1.0Mbps upload speed cap for its WiMAX devices will be given a boost to 1.5Mbps. The boost will only affect mobile devices such as their EVO 4G and Epic 4G phones, but “fixed” devices like their desktop modems won’t be given the same treatment. It’s uncertain why Sprint made such a decision, but the cap will be increased tomorrow (June 10).
The changes will be network-based, so there won’t be any software updates or customer migration required – users just have to enjoy their new speed caps (even though other carriers don’t have such caps in place) provided they have 4G coverage where they are.
