Cingular and Lucent today announced the first successful data calls on Cingular's HSDPA test network in Atlanta, using Lucent equipment. The tests reached sustained data rates over 3 Mbps. Initial HSDPA devices will support 3.6 Mbps peak speeds. As faster devices are released, the network can ultimately deliver theoretical peak data speeds of up to 14.4 Mbps. HSDPA is an enhanced version of UMTS/WCDMA 3G technology. The trial network was first announced in May. Cingular has already contracted with Ericsson, Lucent, and Siemens to provide HSDPA network equipment that should be launched most major markets by the end of 2006.

CINGULAR HAS THE BEST COVERAGE!!!!

Cingular has contracts with hundreds of little company's for "Roaming" coverage in those area's but, You pay nothing for "Roaming", Because it's not really roaming! Verizon, The supposed "Best Coverage" company SUCKS! VZW only covers 74% of the nations Density area, As aposed to Cingular Who Covers 95%!!! Beat That! Oh, and Cingular Has approx 12 million more customers, because now, they just made a contract with T-Mobile, And finished buying Cellular One (Northeastern Cell One) This makes them #1! If you have any questions or don't believe me, E-Mail Me! Please! Gac0618@aol.com . I would love to debate with you! Have a nice day! Twisted Evil

Internet Competition

So will this drive the monopolized carriers of landline based High Speed internet to lower prices since there is now fixin to be viable competition?
I hope so. I think it is ludicrous to spend so much for internet access.
