Caribbean Island of Aruba Upgraded to EVDO

PARIS -- Alcatel-Lucent today announced it has completed the deployment of an enhanced third-generation (3G) network based on CDMA2000® 1X and 1xEV-DO technology covering the entire Caribbean island of Aruba.

The new network will enable SETAR N.V., the leading wireless telecommunications operator in Aruba, to expand its wireless service to offer local customers and tourists high-quality, mobile voice and high-speed broadband data services such as video streaming, access to corporate e-mail and intranets, and many other new applications at speeds of up to 2.4 Megabits per second, as well as CDMA roaming capabilities to tourists.

"SETAR’s investment in CDMA will strengthen Aruba's position in the tourism industry, allowing tourists to stay connected while visiting Aruba," said Roland Croes, Managing Director, SETAR N.V. "This modern telecommunications infrastructure will make Aruba an even more attractive destination for cruise ships, hotels and timeshare guests, and we will be able to introduce new innovative services with the deployment of CDMA2000 1xEV-DO technology."

Under the terms of the agreement, Alcatel-Lucent provided SETAR N.V. with its CDMA Modular Cell 4.0 base stations, as well as comprehensive maintenance services, including network engineering and deployment.


So which carrier in the US will have a roaming agreement first? Sprint or Verizon?

Looks like the specs for the upgrade are EVDO Rev 0, not EVDO Rev A
