Verizon Wireless yesterday announced the launch of its BroadbandAccess service in Las Vegas. Powered by an Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) third generation (3G) network, BroadbandAccess provides average user speeds of 300-500 kilobits per second (kbps). The service is already available in Washington, DC and San Diego. Verizon Wireless expects to invest $1 billion over the next two years to deploy EV-DO nationally.

What about EV-DV?

Why would you waste money on a protocol that takes away bandwidth from your voice services when there is one available that is fully retroactive and utilizes bandwidth for both data and voice?

the second release of EV-DO supports low latency applications. Thus voice over IP may (and only may) be a possibility in future. It may be a possibility already for all i know.

EV-DV support is wanning as well. EV-DO got a nice boost becaue it was...

very true.. however that's why verizon wireless isn't launching EV-DO until it has the extra spectrum for it to carry both broadband users and voice.. EV-DV would be nice, we'll see where this goes eh! Laughing

Funny, this.

Fact: UMTS has been rolled out in more markets so far then EV-DO.

And they had 6 months head start?!
We don't know what kind of woes that there has been in getting this rolled out. It probly all has to be approved by the FCC each and every step of the way too, because all forms of transmited comunication needs to be approved by them.

Exactly how do they choose the markets to roll EV-DO out in?

Is it solely a profit thing or are there more reasons for picking San Diego, Washington DC and Las Vegas as the initial markets for this?
Just a thought....if you notice that they are all three across the country. Perhaps this will help them in the future to connect their entire network. Like instead of trying to blanket across from one end of the country to the other, they will just ki...

Isn't Qualcomm in San Diego too?
Probably where their headquarters are.

EV-DO support?

I'm not aware of a phone that has been released that supports EV-DO. I've heard the the VX8000 was planned to be released as the premier phone to support EV-DO, but its not released yet. Has it been released in those markets or has another phone that suppports EV-DO been introduced?
as of now you have to get the PC card for your laptop...the 8000 is supposed to come out in the next 6 months..hopfully sooner
