    EV-DO is the network technology (full name - CDMA2000 1xEVDO). VCast is the service branding, BroadbandAccess is another service branding. Both use EVDO network technology.

    EVDO will allow you to download at close-to-broadband speeds. VCast is a service (program) on the new phones that allow you to connect and watch TV/Movie clips. VCast uses EVDO to download and buffer the clip at faster speeds.

    EV-DO is a technology that facilitates a connection to the Internet. With it, you can use your phone as a modem, connect to the Internet, and do just about anything you could on a home computer/home connection.

    VCast is a service offering. I believe it's major offering are video clips which you can watch on selected phones.

    EV-DO facilitates VCast...VCast is not EV-DO.

    BroadBandAccess is the service name for EV-DO. NationalAccess is the service name for 1xRTT which is the same as EV-DO in that it allows you to connect to the net, but is slower.
