Intertelecom Rev.A (CDMA) with Sierra Wireless AirCard 802S hotspot

Usage of modern smartphones (i.e. iPhone 5) with GPRS/EDGE technology in year 2013 is that kind of sophisticated torture. EDGE is in use by Kyivstar from 24.10.2005. There is still no 3G or 4G frequencies licensed to major Ukrainian GSM operators (Kyivstar, MTS, Life). So to keep Kyivstar number and get fast internet outdoor some external solution needed. One of those solutions is CDMA 3G Wi-Fi hotspot. Those devices could be connected to Intertelecom, PeopleNet, CDMA Ukraine. For EVDO Rev.A it is theoretically DL:3.1/UP:1.8 Mbit/s. A lot of CDMA operator dealers in Ukraine selling Sprint OverdrivePro 3G/4G mobile hotspot (assuming that device was previously locked for Sprint network).

Power on, connect to 3G takes about 40-60 second.
