    Anyone have any idea when Verizon is launching EVDO in upstate NY? I keep asking the CS reps but they have no idea.

    I honestly think they will pronbably finish NYC first. Rember, NYC is more than just Manhatan and the airports.

    Its not as major a market as you think. Albany would get it before Rochester probably. The way to tell were it will be next sometimes involves were is it at the airport but not in the city....yet. But like I siad, only Manhatan has it, not the rest of NYC. When that changes then we will see it in more non super metro places.

    Verizon Wireless expands high-speed Internet service in Rochester, 14 other areas

    6/28/05

    NEW YORK (AP) - Verizon Wireless is bringing broadband Internet service to Rochester and 14 other markets, for a total of more than 50. The move extends Verizon's lead over Cingular Wireless and Sprint in delivering faster data transfers to laptop and cell phone users.

    The expansion of the Verizon data network includes Seattle, Saint Louis, Cleveland, Long Island, and Syracuse.

    Tuesday's announcement comes amid mounting speculation about possible snags in the launch of the same technology by Sprint and the further deployment of a similar service by Cingular. Verizon's rivals both maintain they're on track with their wireless broadband strategies despite some substantial merger distractions.

    verizon loves to pre-announce services before they even have it setup - when you sign up for it you end up waiting months before they can actually deliver.

    Its your fault for signing up for a service that they said was coming out that isn't out yet.
