Broadband to Go

Anecdotal Tests: EvDO Delivers, Most of the Time

On Verizon's BroadbandAccess service, testers' experiences varied widely. Several of the tests we performed are expressly forbidden under Verizon's terms of service.

Footnotes: 1. According to Verizon's terms of service for BroadbandAccess. 2. Activity not explicitly disallowed.

How We Test: We asked testers in six metropolitan areas across the United States to perform seven tasks using a laptop equipped with a built-in EvDO adapter and/or a PC Card at various locations around (and outside) their city.
