Based on CDMA 1x Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) Revision A (Rev. A) technology, customers in the areas of upgraded coverage can expect "average download speeds of 450-800 Kbps and average upload speeds of 300-400 Kbps".
Verizon Wireless and Sierra Wireless today announced that the Sierra Wireless AirCard 595 PC card for EVDO Revision A networks is now available for use with Verizon Wireless' BroadbandAccess service. This is the first EVDO Revision A-compatible PC card to launch on the Verizon Wireless network.
