NEXTEL Flarion outperforms CDMA2000 1x EV-DO

Nextel Communications Inc.’s decision earlier this week to expand its wireless broadband network trial in the Raleigh, N.C., market may have proven well founded as network testing conducted by RBC Capital Markets indicated Flarion Technologies’ Flash-OFDM based technology is providing data speeds nearly three times faster than CDMA2000 1x EV-DO networks and equal to wireline-based broadband offerings.

I am a little leery of the reported speeds since it was tested in Raleigh, NC (SP?) Lets get it into a big market where is actually a high volume of cellular traffic, like Washington DC and see how it performs. If it is indeed better that is great, since it will only be a matter of time before VZW buys Nextel.

That market is actually pretty big, J. In fact...it's damn big. Alot of people. Granted, not as many as D.C...but let's see how BOTH stack up if and when they go nationwide. Flarion is pretty damn fast, though...looks faster than EV-DO.

Don't mean to burst your bubble, but Flarion along with Moto have launched service in DC for public safety.
