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.

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.
