Will we have EVDO after Switching from Alltel to Verizon
Accurated

Hi!

 

Any help on this problem would be VERY much appreciated!

 

Here goes:

 

I have had an Alltel Aircard (Kyocera K650) for years which I use at my home for my business. I use it in the exact same location every day and have had outstanding EVDO service for years. Sometime in July, we lost our EVDO service and now only have the 1X network (Dial up speed). After much research, it appears that the EVDO service we had in this area was actually provided by a roaming agreement with Sprint, and this roaming agreement was ended in July. My big question is, when the switch to Verizon is completed in this area on October 17th, will we have EVDO again? Our zip code is 49309 (Bitely, Michigan). We currently draw from the Lilley Cell Site tower just off of 14 mile and Gordon roads.

 

Dial-up speed is killing us, we really need to know if we will get our EVDO back, or if we need to look for other options now!

 

Thank you!

You should probably call verizon wireless at 18009220204 just to be sure but based on the coverage map on the website Verizon has evdo coverage...

The folks in your local store may have better information about the area than customer service/tech support would at the 800 number.
