    Compare EVDO vs 1xRTT vs regular Vision

    For lack of a better term, I refer to my regular HA00 radio as regular Vision for data tranfer.

    I searched for comparisons of these protocols, but couldn't find what I want to know:
    What are the speed differences from my current Vision service to 1xRTT (if any) and then to EVDO. I recognize that EVDO is the fastest, but before I install the updgraded HA01 radio protocol (since I believe that EVDO is working in Orlando, but Sprint just hasn't decided how to give it to us yet) I want to know if the 1xRTT is any faster (in case EVDO really isn't here) than Vision.

    I'm NOT trying to compare Sprint vs Verizon. If I'm using some of the terms incorrectly, please forgive and feel free to correct me.

    "Vision" is SPRINT's name for their data network. It isn't a separate connection than 1xRTT or EVDO but is rather the "branding" for the network access which makes use of these technologies.

    1xRTT is up to 140Kbps, although typical performance is 90-100Kbps.

    EVDO is up to 1Mbps+, although typical performance is 600-900Kbps.

    The HA00_xxx radio stack supports 1xRTT only, no EVDO.

    So, "no", 1xRTT isn't faster than Vision... because Vision is the name of the network which makes use of either 1xRTT or EVDO.

    If I've failed to answer your question... refine it further and someone will dig deeper

    yeah sprints marketing is on crack.

    1xRTT + Sprint Marketing = "Sprint PCS Vision"
    EV-DO + Sprint Marketing = "Sprint Power Vision" (no really)
