TELUS EVDO Migration From CMDA to HSPA and LTE
As was announced in the fall of 2013, TELUS is currently re-allocating their wireless spectrum to make room for more HSPA+ and LTE services. Part of this re-allocation of spectrum will involve the turn down of TELUS EVDO data services which operate on the CDMA network. CDMA voice services will remain operational for several more years but will now be re-allocated to a different area of the same 800MHz spectrum to make room for the HSPA services.
EVDO provided users with anywhere from 2.4 Mbit/s of bandwidth up to 3.1 Mbit/s. The HSPA services TELUS will deploy offer anywhere from 14Mbit/s to 84Mbit/s.
