The CDMA Development Group (CDG) has announced that there are now 47 operators in 33 countries that have selected CDMA2000 1xEV DO Revision A (Rev. A) to deliver advanced broadband services, of which 13 of them are commercial. The number of operators that have decided to deploy Rev. A has more than doubled within the past 8 months, with the greatest amount of adoption coming from emerging markets.

"Since operators first began offering Rev. A services a year ago, the CDG has witnessed an dramatic increase in Rev. A networks, devices and subscribers," said Joe Lawrence, vice president of marketing for the CDG. "Rev. A's versatility and performance make it the most advanced wireless broadband technology available today. It allows operators to maximize their return on investments by offering affordable and compelling services with a significantly enhanced user experience."

CDG also reported that so far, CDMA2000 operators have witnessed double digit growth in data revenues, which account for 20% of U.S. revenue and 30% percent of revenue in Japan and South Korea. In Q3 2007, Sprint Nextel generated $1 billion in data revenue (including SMS) and Verizon Wireless generated $2 billion.

Within the past year, 13 commercial Rev. A networks have been deployed in 11 countries - providing access to more than 412 million people. Another 34 Rev. A networks are in deployment. Also, there are currently 37 Rev. A devices commercially available.

The following operators have deployed or are committed to deploying Rev. A networks:
