CDMA Data-Only Grabs Lead in 3G Wireless Race

A new report is out saying that the CDMA carriers need to bite the bullet and move forward with EVDO, which will solve a lot of problems, as well as open up plenty of new opportunities for the carriers. It will also position them ahead of the non-CDMA carriers, whose path to real 3G technology isn’t as clear or as easy. However, they say that, unlike so many technologies that claim to be 3G, EVDO really delivers on the promise of cellular high speed data transfer. I’m actually quite surprised that we haven’t seen more companies follow in the footsteps of Monet Networks and establish high-speed (flat rate!) EV-DO networks.
