Cingular Upgrades Three 3G networks
Oct 18, 2005, 1:12 PM by (staff)
Network equipment partners Lucent and Ericsson today announced they have completed 3 upgrades to what was originally AT&T's UMTS network. 3G networks in Seattle, Phoenix and Dallas / Fort Worth have all been upgraded to support HSDPA in order to be a part of Cingular's launch, expected next month. Although the networks are now capable of higher speeds, users will not see any gains until they can upgrade to new handsets or PC cards that can take advantage of the HSDPA protocol.

So I gotta have an HSPA phone to take advantage of HSPDA speeds?
Its a little like the Sprint-Nextel thing where you can't take advantage of their combined coverage until the hybrid iDEN-CDMA phones come out, and then you gotta go get a new phone.
Hum, that mmight be ok for like a new sign up but others may not be 2 happy.
