Sprint Increases Upload Speeds on 4G Phones

Users of Sprint’s 4G smartphones will benefit from increased upload speeds as the carrier prepares for the launch of the flagship HTC EVO 3D smartphone. While most users will probably not notice the upload speed increase, which is jumping from 1.0 Mbps to 1.5 Mbps, as consumers mostly consume content on their phones, which is affected by download speeds, those who upload and share photos and videos to the web should be pleased to know that the faster speeds means the upload times will drop.

The 50% increase in speed will affect Sprint’s current 4G WiMax smartphone lineup, which currently includes the HTC EVO 4G, the HTC EVO Shift 4G, and the Samsung Epic 4G. The HTC EVO 3D, which is capable of capturing 1080p 2D videos and 720p 3D videos along with 5-megapixel resolution 2D and 3D photos, will launch June 24th.


The speed jump will happen beginning on June 10th.
