You are half right.

Verizon's CDMA network uses EV-DO Rev. 0 and EV-DO Rev A. Needless to say, Rev A is faster. The iPhone 4 I believe used EV-DO Rev 0.

EV-DO Rev 0: 400-1000Kbps Down, 50-100Kbps Up

EV-DO Rev A: 600-1,400Kbps Down, 500-800Kbps Up

However, both of these are a bit slower than the HSPA network AT&T uses, but thats not really worth talking about right now. Just for reference:

HSPA: 700-1700kbps Down; 500-1200kbps Up
HSPA+ will be a bit faster still.

This is about where the extent of my knowledge, and to be honest overall care, goes.
