Article Comments  100+  

Dec 13, 2006, 4:04 PM   by (staff)

A Verizon spokesman today revealed that the carrier has quietly been upgrading its high speed EV-DO data network to Revision A. The carrier has "had a number of communities lit up with Rev. A for a few months, and expect to introduce a first PC card in the coming weeks." Rumors have been mounting that the carrier could introduce its first Revision A data card as early as this week along with an announcement of the upgraded cities. However Verizon has said it will not officially announce Rev. A until a significant number of cities have been upgraded.

PC Mags best network winner is...

Sprint...so why oh why would Sprint win PC Magazine's Editor's Choice Award for wireless data networks if they sucked? Just a thought.
Rolling Eyes ha ha... vzw sucks
Do you have the link for that? I would love to see it.

B/c PC Mag should stick to PC. They shouldn't be reviewing Cell phones service.

The article is the comparison b/t Rev 0 vs. Rev A. What kind of review is that? Its like comparing apple and orange.

Is there a list of Rev-A cities yet?

I just noticed that the Sierra Wireless 595 aircard has just been released. I was wondering if there was an announced list of areas where Rev-A will work. TIA!!
REV A will be available in the 5 boroughs, long island, westchester, rockland by the end of the year and into january of next year.

Razz Now what corner of hell do you stay in and can get better broadband service with squint?

sprint took a half year to get rev. a up and running, verizon two.

sprint not planning on massive expansion of evdo service (they want to upgrade current system to rev. a)

verizon evdo expansion over 100 cities, rev a.
will also be rolled out into the new markets as well as the old.

Why Bring It Up At All?

I do not understand why Verizon even bothered to bring up Rev A. VZW is the best wireless company. Sprint is making a splash with Rev A and that is okay. In my hometown, Mobile, Alabama VZW has rolled out Rev 0 and Sprint is still 1x. Why they are rolling out Rev A when their coverage still has holes with no Rev 0 is beyond me, but that is their deal. Verizon should be above playing that game.

just wait

I'm sure that all carriers are waiting until 1st Q to release some big info...drop some bombs.

Cingy with their family share data plans...

VZW has some big bombs too..

Most of the recent EV-DO areas have been rev A.
Also of note vzw has not updated thier claims on the size of the evdo network. They have new markets launching almost every day.

bombs first of the year.....can't wait.
literally i think vz has launched like 15-20 new evdo markets in the last month or two. Im always seeing stuff about new markets everyday
