But uplink is not really a bottleneck for most people. Typical Internet usage is more about downlink, and EV-DO has been designed to perform well (and it does) for typical scenarios.
The only common things where you need good uplink speed are things like VoIP and 2-way video conferencing. That's what EV-DO release A is all about. It boosts uplink considerably. Verizon and Sprint both have firm plans to move to release A as quickly as possible. I understand that it's mostly a software upgrade on the network side, so it should not be too difficult.
