Verizon today announced they have expanded their EV-DO high speed wireless data to several new markets, including the Denver, Charlotte and Raleigh Durham and San Francisco. Verizon's high speed network now covers 61 metro areas as well as some airports in cities where EV-DO has not launched yet. In addition, Verizon also cut the price of unlimited EV-DO data service (Broadband Access) 25% for voice subscribers. Customers with any monthly voice plan now pay $60 for unlimited data access from their laptops. Unlimited data for smartphones continues to cost $50 per month.

Price War coming!

"Some industry insiders see Verizon's price cut as the possible start of a wireless broadband price war. It is not clear yet if any of Verizon Wireless' rivals, especially Cingular Wireless or Sprint, will cut the price of their wide area laptop data offerings."

There's your first drop...

...$60 is entirely reasonable for EVDO.
It's a very exciting time to be a verizon wireless customer 😁
So was $80. My Comcast cable which is stationed ONLY at my home is $60/month... $60 is amazing for EVDO. Same cost as my Comcast, but I can take it with me outside my home.

Am using EV/DO in Denver to post this message

Am at Denver International, Terminal B, it's slower than in other places but otherwise working well. In Houston it's not uncommon to get bursts over 1 mbps (1000 kbps). Denver seems to be bursting around 600 kbps. It's still very fast however compared to EDGE.
