Oregon gets faster Sprint network

Posted by Tricia Duryee at 5:16 PM

Sprint Nextel said today that it has expanded its high-speed wireless network -- which makes possible fancy things such as watching TV and downloading music -- into much of Western Oregon.

The network, which is already available widely in the Seattle area, will now include Portland, Salem, Eugene, Beaverton, Hillsboro, Vancouver, Oregon City, Tigard, Corvallis, McMinnville, West Linn, Happy Valley, Milwaukie, Sherwood, Gresham, Wilsonville, Newberg, Troutdale, Clackamas and Tualatin.

Sprint uses so-called EV-DO technology to deliver average download speeds of 400 to 700 kilobits per second. That's also what Verizon Wireless uses, while Cingular Wireless uses different technology on the GSM standard.
