While it's no big surprise, Telus has finally gone official with its EV-DO Rev. A details
, explaining that Southern Ontario, Montreal, and Winnipeg can now enjoy the speedy luxuries of Rev. A
technology. The speed boosts are part of a $100 million investment to roll out EV-DO across Canada
, and while it seems that only select locales can look forward to average download speeds of approximately 450Kbps to 800Kbps at the moment, Telus did note that these "enhanced speeds" would grace "the company's full existing EV-DO coverage areas later this year." As for connecting up with the service, Telus will offer a variety of Sierra Wireless
cards to fit a myriad of setups, and those springing for Panasonic's CF-19 or CF-30 Toughbook
can jump right on if you purchase the embedded modem.
