Alltel launches EVDO in Richmond, Va.: The company is now number five after the really big top four (Cingular, Verizon Wireless, Sprint Nextel, and T-Mobile). They’ve added a competitive EVDO offering in Richmond (and soon elsewhere), even as Sprint PCS and Verizon Wireless provide 3G there now and Cingular will add HSDPA (incorrectly called EDGE) in the future. Although they overlap in this city, Alltel’s cellular coverage area is practically the negative image of where big cities are in the U.S.
Alltel launched EVDO elsewhere in the country earlier this year. They have a somewhat hard to find page that shows their Axcess Broadband service’s regional areas: Akron, Cleveland, Lansing, Little Rock, Norfolk (and Richmond), Oklahoma City, Phoenix, and Tampa.
