US EV-DO Approaches 100%

Chetan Sharma reports that Sprint and Verizon have completed their EV-DO Rev. 0 rollout and now have national coverage in the US. This is remarkable for two reasons:

  1. They only stared the upgrade a year ago;
  2. Sprint's plans to have 100 million users covered by Q4 2008 with WiMAX needs to occur at a similar, if not faster, pace.

Note that Sprint claims a similar rate for EV-DO Rev. A with initial rollout beginning end of October 2006 and being completed by Q4 2007. That's pretty good going.
