Sprint Wireless Access at 56K
Sprint this summer will offer business users 56K wireless access using compression technology. Users are expected to dial up a server with a cell phone using the Sprint network and connect it to a PDA for sending e-mail and basic browsing. Competitors are currently peaking at a 19.2K.
This speed is only available for business users for two reasons: Sprint doesn't have enough high-speed capacity to give everyone access and this is an attempt to gain entry into the lucrative business market, an area where its presence is considerably smaller than among consumers.
Officials from Sprint have confirmed this but would not provide further details about the company's plans.
