EvDO In SF Bay Area Sooner Than You Think

According to a well placed source in the EvDO community in San Diego, the Bay Area will finally see real EvDO beyond the test group. My spies tell me that the start date for Broadband Access by Verizon is likely August 29th or so, assuming the Verizon folks like all the results.

It seems getting it up in San Francisco seemed to be more of a challenge with the locals wanting locals to do most of the antenna raising as well as working around some community pole issues.

Now that those issues are resolved it looks like San Jose, SF and parts of the East Bay will be lit, with Sacramento due in the future. Sprint also is getting it up, but they seem to look more for high traffic locations like the airports before venturing to where people who may actually buy and use it work and live.
