    I believe I saw it on Engadget. Consider it a rumor. There have also been postings on sprintusers.com that referred to that pricing.

    wonder if the rumor means $30 for first device, then each device is piggybacked at $5, or slightly similar, like they have now. although i think now it's $10 or $7.50 per device with new pricing plans

    I found out today my $80/mo EVDO rate will be $60/mo beginning with the next billing cycle. That's with 2 months left on my 2 year account. The CSR told be they're doing this with all the existing accounts - with no contract change. Thanks Verizon!

    That's awesome. I have a feeling that I'll be switching to Verizon sometime soon. Sprint may be cheaper, but you pay for it with some awful customer support. I wish there were more than just 2 CDMA carriers (at least nationwide ones).

Bandwidth is great but latency is still not all that great, averaging 200-400ms (both Sprint/Verizon EVDO). The next release of EVDO will supposedly improve latency.

    Sprint's new standard pricing will supposedly come out Sept 1, according to our rep, who is based out of the HQ.

    Not exactly a price war yet, Sprint still shows 79.99 for unlimited data. This was verified through Sprint's new website on 9-1

    ^and it looks like Sprint is now offering a free EVDO laptop card with 2-year contract. Go for the Novatel Merlin card, it performs consistently better than the Sierra card.
