Anybody using EVDO in New Orleans?

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Paul, Feb 11, 2005.

    Has anybody tried EVDO in New Orleans, specifically in the vicinity of the
    Superdome?

    We have a conference coming up in New Orleans and the hotel is charging
    outrageous fees for internet access in the meeting room areas ($1000.00 a
    day!).

    Thanks.

  7. I think your confused but perhaps I am....
    1X is different than EVDO.
    1X is what they have in New Orleans at this point. That will work but is
    much slower than EVDO and will get you close to 144K at peaks.

    They have BOTH on the same plan.. Only works with the newer 5220 cards (and
    some new phones just announced). 1X and EVDO work sort of seamlessly, if you
    are in an EVDO area and travel into 1X, it drops to 1X speed, reverse also
    works.

    It is *NOT* only located in hotels like WiFi as some people on here persist
    on saying erroneously...

    The plan you get is NationalAccess *AND* BroadbandAccess. NA gives bursts up
    to 144k (avg 80), while BA gives bursts up to 2.4 meg (avg 500-600 k)

    Never tried it for a whole conference room full of people, just use it with
    a small webcam aimed at me while I watch the return video feed on my laptops
    screen.. Don't see why it wouldn't work I'm currently in Las Vegas and drove
    down the strip with the camera aimed out the front window (instead of at me)
    so my friends could see the strip as I drove around, and from the top of the
    stratosphere tower so they could see LV all around...

    Don't know how well it would work inside the dome though.. When in cement
    and steel buildings (or underground parking garages) here (where the signal
    isn't good enuf), it drops to 1X speeds.. Seems like inside a cement and
    steel structure you may end up with the same problem.

    Just saying "1X" by itself is the wrong term to use. Technically speaking:

    1xRTT is the "slow" 3G NationalAccess (144k at best). Available pretty
    much everywhere VZW has digital coverage.

    1xEVDO is the "fast" 3G BroadbandAccess (200k - 400k and beyond,
    theoretically) Available only in 30 major metro areas currently.

    EVDO does work at the Hyatt, but the conference room most likely will not
    receive. In Jan. 05 I stayed at the Hyatt and my PC5220 in my hotel room
    received OK. You are right that the Hyatt charges are high for internet
    use.
