David Pogue writes about EVDO in the New York Times: But his column is several months late to the mainstream media coverage of this cell data technology. It’s also a little scanty on two important issues. First, EVDO isn’t national yet, although it’s getting there. EDGE may be slower, but it’s available fairly universally from Cingualr. Second, he mentions in a parenthetical paragraph that upload speeds are poor, but he cites the 100 Kbps estimate given by Verizon and doesn’t list a test upload speed as he does for download late in the story. I’ve heard that 50 Kbps is a more typical average upload speed.
Seattle is the latest city to get Verizon’s EVDO service starting today, reports The Seattle Times.
