Verizon today announced it has completed a deal with Lucent to upgrade its EV-DO network to Revision A. The company will use equipment from Lucent, which provides Verizon's current network hardware, making the transition as fast and simple as possible. Although Verizon has been testing Lucent Revision A hardware for some time, it had not announced any official move to the next generation technology. Verizon still has not announced a timeline for the Revision A rollout. Sprint announced it expects to roll out Revision A in select markets by the end of 2006, and offer nationwide coverage by the end of 2007.

I've had GSM carriers for the longest time and I just recently switched to Verizon Wireless.. everyday I love it more and more... V-Cast, VZ Navigator, High Speed browsing... and now its gonna be even faster! Very Happy

Cingular will never be good with data especially when they only have UMTS/HSDPA against Sprint or Verizon, but Cingular will do well with HSUPA and/or MIMO. I think people just have to be patient.
...
What's up with this it works very slow compared to Verizon & Sprints networks, all these loooooser networks are currnetly running @ 400-700kbps, each of them, the SAME looooser speed, ZERO competition to cable internet.
...
We all know that "if everything goes well" Cingular with HSPDA will be faster in 2 years. That's not to say Revision D won't be out at 25 mbps.. hell who thought 4 years ago we would have Fiber Optics to the house.. it would be cheaper than my cable i...
