Cingular today launched their long awaited 3G network in 16 metro areas. BroadbandConnect is the first HSDPA service to launch world-wide. HSDPA increases UMTS's download speeds to an average of 400-700 Kbps. Initially the high speed service is only available to laptop users through the Sierra Wireless AC860 and Novatel 720 PC Cards. The cards cost $100 with a 2 year contract. Unlimited data service is being offered for a promotional price of $60 per month. The service is available in Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Portland OR, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, Tacoma and Washington D.C. Cingular will launch HSDPA handsets at a later date. Additionally the company has said it will expand BroadbandConnect coverage to 100 markets during 2006.
