Verizon EVDO Rev. A card

Verizon has begun unofficial support of EVDO Revision A with the AirCard 595, produced by Sierra Wireless. The card plugs into a Type II PC card slot, and allows enhanced data rates without a local connection, with an average speed of 400-700Kbps and a maximum of 2Mbps. A computer with Windows 2000, XP or Vista is required. Standard EVDO and CDMA networks are also supported. Sprint was previously the only American phone carrier to support Revision A, and the company is still working to expand its services. Verizon has yet to formally deploy a single Revision A subnet. The AirCard 595 currently costs $100 online with a two-year contract.
