Canadians to get high-speed EV-DO wireless network

Canadian wireless users may be getting high-speed wireless services much sooner then expected. Thanks to a new CAD $160 million deal between Bell Mobility and Nortel, CDMA2000 1X radio base stations, base station controllers, switching platforms and other related equipment will be setup throughout Canada to offer CDMA2000 1X and 1xEV-DO (Evolution-Data Optimized) third generation (3G) wireless technologies to consumers.

The speeds expected for wireless data transfers will be as fast as 2.4 megabits per second with average speeds of 300-500 kilobits per second. If this doesn’t mean much to you, remember that most high-speed DSL connections are 1.5 megabits per second. Services will be initially available to select markets this year.

“The EVDO network will offer Canada’s fastest wireless experience and deliver leading-edge innovation to the market to revolutionize the way Canadians use their mobile devices.” said Almis Ledas, vice president, corporate development, Bell Mobility.

With this network in place, Canadians will be able to access high-quality video, audio and even Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DBM) services.
