Cingular 3G To Launch November 1

An internal link to Cingular's sales website has revealed that the carrier plans to launch their 3G network on November 1. At launch, the network will cover 15 metro areas, however 3 of those are large contiguous areas covering more than one city. The initial launch includes Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco / San Jose / Oakland, Seattle / Tacoma and Washington / Baltimore / NoVa. The only device mentioned in the document is the Sierra Aircard 860, however the document also mentions streaming video, opening the possibility that the LG U320 and other handsets may be available at launch as well. Cingular expects throughput speeds of 220-320 Kbps on the network, which is slower than what HSDPA is capable of, however the Sierra Aircard 860 is an HSDPA specific device, lending credibility to Cingular's statements that the network would be HSDPA on launch.
