Cingular 3G In Most Of 100 Largest Cities
Dec 20, 2006, 4:20 PM by (staff)
Cingular today announced it has launched 3G in 160 markets across the US. This exceeds Cingular's predictions a year ago that they would cover 100 markets by the end of 2006. According to the carrier this includes most of the 100 largest cities in the US, including Chicago, Dallas, Miami, New York, Seattle, San Francisco. However the carrier has not made a full list of upgraded cities available, and their coverage map does not allow you to see 3G coverage until you have zoomed in to view a specific city. We were able to determine that there is still no 3G coverage in Los Angeles. Although it has been confirmed the carrier will upgrade their HSDPA to 7.2 Mbbps speeds, Cingular has not announced future plans for their 3G network, including any further rollout plans or additional services / upgrades they will make.
