    Verizon Wireless is launching 1xEV-DO service in several US cities today, bringing broadband speeds to supported mobile devices.


    US phone carrier Verizon Wireless is today launching 1xEV-DO service in several American markets, and has stated plans to cover a third of their network with 3G service by the end of the year.

    Starting today, Verizon Wireless customers in Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Milwaukee, New York City, Philadelphia, Tampa, and West Palm Beach will be able to sign on to the company's new 3G-compliant 1xEV-DO network. Airports in Dallas, Houston, and Newark, New Jersey are also getting 1xEV-DO coverage for travelers.

    CDMA 1xEV-DO is an upgrade from conventional 1xRTT network technology that meets the definition of of a 3G service with download speeds of 300 kbps to 500 kbps. Naturally the service requires a 1xEV-DO capable phone or handheld, the selection of which is still limited but expected to grow over time. Verizon's main CDMA competitor in the United States, Sprint, has also been working to upgrade their network to 1xEV-DO, and expects deployments to most of its metropolian markets sometime in 2005.

    Verizon Wireless's CEO also reiterated that the company is continuing to expand its network, and plans to offer 1xEV-DO service to about over one third of its network by the end of the year, which would include about 75 million people. That figure includes non-Verizon Wireless subscribers, however.

    We've been discussing that in the another thread. Sprint 650 EV-DO? Hope for Verizon customers, but probably too early for the Treo 650 to implement. http://www.infosyncworld.com/news/n/5364.html

    Verizon's EV-DO plans are widely known. Glad to see it's finally here.
    According to this "old news" story, Cingular can't even apply for 3g spectrum until the AT&T merger is final. They are still testing technology, and are far away from building a network.
