Sprint Offers CDMA Back-up for Wirelines Access

Sprint will begin offering a means to use its CDMA network as a back-up for existing wireline data access services at business locations. Companies could also use the Sprint-certified CDMA modem and Sprint PCS Data Link service for remote-access features for their mobile workforce. Sprint expects to make these capabilities available to business customers next month.

Sprint Nationwide PCS Network currently supports average data speeds of 50 to 70 kbps. The company's ongoing EV-DO (Evolution Data Optimized) rollout will boost download speeds up to 10 times.
