Sprint customers will soon be getting their maximum 4G uplink speeds boosted to 1.5 Mbps, according to an internal screen captured by Android Police. The change will kick in this Friday, June 10, and will only affect 4G phones -- 4G modems and the like will still be limited to the previous cap of 1.0 Mbps.
This is a relatively minor boost for Sprint's network -- upstream limits are generally less noticeable than download limits, especially on smartphones, where other bottlenecks can come into play. As such, the Sprint internal memo says that the carrier isn't planning on "proactively communicating" this information to customers. Still, any network speed increase has to be good news, right?
