Verizon today announced they completed preliminary tests of voice, video and data calls on EV-DO Rev. A equipment. The company plans to do further testing in early 2006 including Voice over IP (VoIP) calls and applications that use simultaneous voice, video and data transfer. Verizon is conducting the tests using Lucent equipment, which will be ready for deployment once Verizon is satisfied and wants to upgrade their network. EV-DO Revision A is the next step in high-speed wireless data. Not only does it provide faster data transfers (up to 3 Mbps download), it also allows for advanced call features like Push To Talk, VoIP calls and video calls.

Dandy !!! EVDO appears to be up on the Front Range CO

I was delighted to see some new letters on my Verizon (Audiovox, UT-Starcom, Siemens et al) XV6600 today - EVDO instead of 1x. Good job folks - the original goal of 'end of summer' for large scale deployment appears to have been met here in the eastern slope of the CO rocky mountains. I have not played around much with the new network but the default IE browser is quite a bit more responsive upon initial call and the Intellisync performance should *woo* the skeptics for sure.

Don't forget to *228 and update mobile if you see this new letters EVDO on the screen.

Also don't forget the 2nd ROM update this year for this particular product. The kind of support we come to expect and trust.
