Techdirt Wireless reports that Verizon will lower unlimited EV-DO wireless data service from $80 to $60 per month. This change is rumored to be in response to Sprint, who's launching their EV-DO service
"any day now" at a cost of -- you guessed it -- $80 per month. Both
Verizon and Sprint networks are based on CDMA. The slowest (and
cheapest) wireless data service is 1xRTT; EV-DO is the fastest. You can
read a nice little primer from Qualcomm on CDMA wireless data
performance, throughput and economics here (pdf file).
