Cingular To Upgrade HSDPA To 7.2 Mbps Next Year
Dec 8, 2006, 12:07 PM by (staff)
According to an official from Qualcomm, Cingular is set to launch even faster HSDPA in 2007, possibly as early as next month. The carrier will upgrade to a maximum download speed to 7.2 Mbps to the network, though with HSDPA upload remains capped at 384 Kbps. The faster speeds will only be available to users with new data cards, just as 3.6 Mbps is only available to cards users now. Cingular's handsets are still limited to 1.8 Mbps downloads. A number of companies including Option and Novatel have recently announced 7.2 Mbps HSDPA capable cards would be shipping soon, adding further credence to Qualcomm's statement.

Cricket Customers Won't Benefit from AT&T's LTE Advancements for Now
Cricket Wireless customers shouldn't expect to see an improvement in data speeds any time soon, despite the incredible gains in LTE performance made by Cricket parent AT&T. Cricket caps all customers' data speeds at 8 Mbps, even though its phones and the network support speeds up to 10 times faster.

Sorry for GSM technology...
CDG Defines EV-DO Revision C, Renames Standard
Tuesday, 11:43 AM source: CDG
The CDMA Development Group (CDG) today announced preliminary details of EV-DO Revision C, which uses additional technologies to squeeze even more data into a fixed amount of spectrum. The latest version of EV-DO will take advantage of every modern wireless technology and buzzword to pack spectrum with as much data as possible, including CDMA, TDM, OFDM, Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and Space Division Multiple Access (SDMA) advanced antenna techniques. The standard, which will be called Ultra Mobile Broadband, is capable of download speeds up to 280 Mpbs, although the CDG has not yet said how much spectrum will be required to re...
The main problem with CDMA is that its lack of global roaming ability, being stuck with that ANSI core. Technically speaking, GSM can (and has) used different types of air interface, f...
Rev A is not even completely deployed... Then there will be "B" and "C"
In the mean time (Jan 2007) for GSM there will be 7.2Mbps with HSDPA
At ITU Telecom in Hong Kong, several manufacturers are showing off HSUPA, the next evolution in 3G technology after HSDPA. Qualcomm will be demonstrating an HSUPA networ...
7.2 Mbps. Okay. When pigs fly.
Yeahhh, I did hear about that. They expect to have pigs flying by early next year.
3.6 MBPS Phones?
I think Cingular would keep it that way because phone users won't need more than 1.8 even with video services
HSDPA Upgrade vs EVDO Upgrade - Price and Hardware
But now here is the question, I just bought a new DELL Laptop with the integrated HSDPA card. With this upgrade coming to Cingular's network does that mean my internal card will have to be upgraded to take advantage of these new speeds? Like the Rev A to B that Sprint offers? Or are HSDPA upgrades only linked to tower upgrades and does not mean anything to the client side? A...

I'll believe it when I have a 7.2mbps aircard! ! !
But if they do, you can be, I'll be one of the first to order an aircard from Telesales, and I'll call Cox up and cancel my service, I'm currently getting 6mbps from Cox, which is great, BUT, it's not wireless.
Cox and comcast are nice speeds on wired, but 7.2mbps is highly unlikely because of the technology on the same voice tower. 1.8 mbps isnt achiev...
Rev. A as good as current version of HSDPA
Does that mean new commercials?
When will they get HSUPA?
