Evolution Data Only or Evolution Data Optimized, often abbreviated as
EVDO, EV-DO, EvDO, 1xEV-DO or 1xEvDO is a wireless radio broadband
data protocol being adopted by many CDMA mobile phone providers in
Brazil, Japan, Korea, Israel, the United States, Australia and Canada
as part of the cdma2000 standard. 1xEVDO is pronounced "One Ex-E:-
Vee-Dee-Oh." It is commonly referred in the industry as DO (Dee-Oh).
Compared to 1xRTT networks currently being used by operators, or the
GPRS and EDGE networks employed by their GSM competitors, 1xEV-DO is
significantly faster, providing access terminals with download speeds
of up to 2.4 Mbit/s. Only terminals with 1xEV-DO chipsets can take
advantage of the higher speeds.
