Smart Telecom in Bali is the world's first network operator to deploy an EVDO Rev. B 3G wireless network. Rev. B is an evolutionary update to EVDO Rev. A, which is currently used by Sprint, Verizon and others in the U.S. for 3G services. Rev. B boosts speeds to 9.3Mbps in the downlink and 5.4Mbps in the uplink. Both Sprint and Verizon have made clear commitments to other wireless broadband technologies for their next-generations networks (WiMax and LTE, respectively), but other CDMA operators around the world, including Japan's KDDI and China Telecom, are trialling Rev. B. AnyData, Huawei and ZTE have committed to making Rev. B compliant hardware. Smart Telecom expects to upgrade the majority of ti network to Rev. B by the end of 2010. The first devices available that will operate on the Rev. B data network will be laptop modems.

No one interested in this?

This is awesome for CDMA! I hope they will get as much mileage out of CDMA that they can get. Those speeds are not too shaby. So what if I can't talk and surf the web right Owen? 😉
You could if Verizon or Sprint were interested in sinking money into CDMA. But...they are not. Neither is going to pour any resources into Rev B or C etc... So this is not news for us.
