Sprint Reportedly Raising 4G Upload Speed Cap

Sprint 4G upload

It appears that Sprint is getting ready to bump its WiMax upload speeds by a bit as of tomorrow.  According to an internal memo leaked to Spantechular, the maximum upload speed on Sprint’s 4G network will get a boost from 1.0 Mbps to 1.5 Mbps as of tomorrow.  The even better news is that this is happening on the network side of things, so users won’t even have to download any new software to take advantage of the increased speeds.

As we all discover on a pretty regular basis, the only number the majority of people care about is their download speeds, but when you consider how we’re putting more and more data into the cloud as soon as we create it, upload speeds are going to become increasingly important.  We’re getting to a point where we sync everything wirelessly the moment a picture is taken or a song is purchased, so getting that data to the cloud as quickly as possible is definitely going to become something everyone looks for.

Fire up those Sprint 4G devices tomorrow and get to uploading!
