    I tested my 700w's speeds using 1xRTT and EVDO (turned off EVDO with #*#3836) to see the effect of EVDO on data transfers. I used www.dslreports.com/stest and their servers in SFO and LAX. PDAnet was used for connecting my laptop to the test site. I did did three tests for comparison - 1xRTT, EVDO and my home DSL. I ran each tests three times at each site to get an average speed. I also ran 1xRTTT a fourth time at SFO to see if the difference between there and LAX was repeatable. (it was - that was interesting because it only happened with 1xRTT)

    The results - EVDO appears to offer very little advantage in uploads over 1xRTT but is anywhere from 2x to 3x as fast on downloads - so page loading for web browsing and getting data files will be faster but if you do a lot of uploading you'll see no gain of consequence.

    ~20KB/ sec with EVDO ....much nicer than EDGE

    I havent done any of the speed test, but at the DFW airport verizon site, it's SLOW, slower than dialup on your computer it seems. Now at my house it just downright giddys up.
    Figured you would like to know
