    Verizon Wirelessí EVDO has won itself many fans, and those fans will have a lot to cheer about later this summer or early fall, when the company rolls out an upgrade to its wireless data network.

    Verizonís key supplier Nortel Networks today announced that it will be supplying gear to Verizon and has finished trials successfully. In comparison to todayís EVDO technology, the Rev A technology is able provide peak data rates of up to 3.1 Mbps on the forward link (information flowing from the cellular base station to the subscriber) and up to 1.8 Mbps on the reverse link (information flowing from the subscriber back to the cellular base station).

    Though it is highly unlikely that we will all see those speeds, but they will be substantially higher than what we get today - 200 kbps in good areas of coverage. (You can download it here.)
    OK, I know peeps are alreday thinking about selling their 700's now

    As for 200 kbps ?......puts a damper in theorists on both sides claiming the OS being the reason EVDO is slow on 700w's or 700p's. I am aware that people have seen 500-700 on occassion and I gotta wonder why some get this while most seem stuck at the 200 range.

    Peak of 3.1? And a good reverse link too? Impressive

    As for the 200k, the best way to measure the Treo's speed is to download a large file. I downloaded a 13MB file and calculated my speeds to be in the 400-500k range. Blazer stalls after the download for several seconds on dslreports.com, so it is understating the speed.

    The bigger thing about Rev A that is less talked about is the lower latency, as low as 50ms compared to 150ms-400ms for Rev 0.

    Sprint is also rolling out Rev A later this year, a sample result appeared to show up here at 2.8Mbps..

    Even though Rev 0 devices can't be upgraded to Rev A, the good news is that you'll get more out of Rev 0... chances are better you can get better than 1Mbps and chances are better you'll get closer to 150ms latency.

    The big thing is simultaneous voice and data.

    ^Not quite true, not until VoIP over Rev A. However Sprint will be coming out with phones that do voice over iDen and simultaneous data over EVDO.

    BTW, more Sprint REv A results are appearing just now...
