Last December, Sprint rolled out 4G to the San Francisco Bay Area and also released this video (below) explaining 4G as well as the power of some of their 4G devices. Using a hotspot to tap into the Sprint 4G network, you can connect a laptop or any Wi-Fi enabled device to the Internet virtually anywhere, such as downtown San Francisco, Palo Alto or San Jose, at speeds that are up to 10 times faster than 3G.
If you’re coming to the Tech Cocktail mixer event tomorrow night at ROE, make sure to tweet about 4G using the hashtags #Sprint4G and #TechCocktailSF and you could win one these great prizes from Sprint: a Samsung Epic 4G or an Overdrive Pro 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot by Sierra Wireless. Here’s more about these 4G devices:
Samsung Epic 4G from Sprint, a Galaxy S smartphone, is America’s first 4G-capable phone with a full QWERTY keyboard and super 4-inch touchscreen – an all-in-one device for staying connected, getting work done and enjoying the latest in entertainment while on-the-go.
Overdrive Pro 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot by Sierra Wireless allows users to connect up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled devices simultaneously – including laptops, tablets, eReaders, gaming devices, cameras and even smartphones from other carriers – through a single connection (via Wi-Fi) to Sprint’s 4G network. Overdrive Pro creates a connection between the Sprint 4G network and virtually all of the hundreds of millions of Wi-Fi-enabled electronics devices owned by or available to customers today.
Watch this video to learn more about 4G in the Bay Area.
