Sierra Wireless yesterday announced the EV-DO Revision A capable AirCard 595, along with a mini card designed to be embedded into laptops and other data devices. Using Revision A, the 595 will double download speeds to 3.1 Mbps and increase upload by a factor of 10 to 1.8 Mbps. The card is backwards compatible with EV-DO Rel. 0 and 1xRTT data in areas where Rev. A is not available. Sierra states the card is scheduled for commercial shipment in the third quarter, hinting that CDMA carriers may be rolling out their data upgrades before the holiday shopping season in at least some markets.

Unless you have REV-A equipment, you aint gunna get REV-A speeds. So for everyone who is posting asking if "my speed on my 6700" will go up, of course, no.

Slowing down, common sense, and intelligence go a long way to answering our own questions I think.

Don't have to be rude about it guy. People who don't work in this industry may not understand everything about it.
Noone here was asking if we could get Rev A speeds. we can tell by your post that you didnt read anything that was said. I just asked if the phones limit now was 128 because of the phone or the system, and if it was the system would we see faster sp...

faster upload speed to EVDO now ?

Will Rev A free up some bandwidth so us older evdo users can get faster upload speed? 128 isnt terrible but would like to think the cards and phones we have now can do more then that..but its just not setup to go faster at the moment. Would love to see this work

I would also like to see less latency. Trying to use VoIP or IP-Sec VPN over the VZW Broadband PC Card is painful at times. I often get 200-300ms latency with their 1x-EVDO offering.
It's technically not an issue of "freeing up bandwidth", but EVDO Rev. A does support much faster upload speeds: 1.8 Mbps. You'll need a Revision A card on a Revision A network to get that, but it is coming.
