    Now that this is out here for public consumption, can they concentrate on both DOrA and a Wi-Max buildout together

    EV-DO and WiMAX really are separate deployments. Having EV-DO does help pave the way for WiMAX since there’s a backhaul upgrade… but it’s actually just a small upgrade compared to the bandwidth that WiMAX requires.

    Do not expect EV-DO and WiMAX deployments to happen in 1xRTT areas simultaneously. You should only expect to see WiMAX in metropolitan areas that already have saturated EV-DO coverage.
