Verizon boosts whole network to EVDO Rev. A

Verizon EVDO Rev A

Verizon continued its series of messages today by announcing that its entire Internet-capable network now supports EVDO Revision A, allowing the company's V740 data cards and future cellphones to connect at 3.5G speeds anywhere they can find an EVDO signal. The company has boosted its claimed speeds and estimates that downloads in real-world conditions average between 600Kbps and 1.4Mbps; uploads are nearly as quick at 500Kbps to 800Kbps. A 1MB attachment can take as little as eight seconds to download and 13 seconds to upload, Verizon says.

Using EVDO Rev. A requires both one of the compatible devices and one of Verizon's BroadbandAccess data plans; the company has not set out a timetable for when it expects to offer EVDO Rev. A phones but should be able to do so in the near future given the existence of the HTC Mogul and similar devices.
