Cingular to Light Up HSPA in Mid 2007

Article Comments  100+  

Mar 28, 2007, 5:29 PM   by (staff)

AT&T (Cingular) chief technology officer Kris Rinne confirmed in an interview that AT&T will be upgrading its 3G wireless broadband with high-speed uplink packet access (HSUPA) in the middle of 2007. The update to high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) improves speeds both on the up and down links. The combined technologies are called high speed packet access (HSPA). Uplink speeds are boosted to 1.8 megabits per second, and downlink speeds will reach 7.2 megabits per second. Real world speeds for HSDPA were in the 400 to 700 kilobit per second range. HSPA real speeds will be faster than that, but AT&T is not releasing any guidelines on what they will be. AT&T is planning to trial the technology in April and launch later this year,

all these damn cingular people think that thier data is the **** should look at this and know that this is all facts and should just shut the hell up. stop being phone nerds and be real, i work in sprint sales and HAVE to know what every carrier is working with so i know advantages and disadvantages
Both you and I think alike because I was actually going to post that website. I actually posted some of the speeds and other Wimax situation against the other technologies when it comes to speed, capacity, spectrum, devices, and other relevant informa...

All this talk about how great WiMax is GOING to be and how it's GOING to take over the world. Now, does anyone have a WiMax capable phone? Have any of you experienced WiMax speeds? Didn't think so, I HAVE a 3G/HSDPA phone now, I HAVE experienced HSDPA...

Primary consumer

What kind of consumer is AT&T aiming this ever speedier network to? Is it mainly corporate use of Aircards?

Is there an assumption retail customers will take more interest in 3G data applications over time?
The demand is low across all carriers, excluding aircards.

Kind of simple there my friend. The primary consumer would be business and regular customers who want higher data needs and usage. If you aren’t a heavy data user this isn’t for you, especially if you don’t need the speed. This type of network w...

Sprint WiMax (Vaporware). Cingular HSPA. No connection.

Do the Sprint postings that have been appearing lately remind anyone of Wal-Mart's PR stunt where they paid people to blog about travelling in an RV, you know, Walmarting Across America?

How about

How about agressively deploying hsdpa in more areas, FAST and upgrading it to 3.6mbps then worry about hsupa.
As TDMA markets begin to shut down as of June 1st (oops you didn't hear that from me) You'll start seeing Cingular being more 'aggresive' in the 3G dept...

There adding 58-65 more markets of HSDPA by the end of the year, dont wry efveryone is going to be covered eventually

i doubt it would be any faster then rev a, and you still limited on content you can use.

Yea, that is the problem with some companies who do have that policy in place such as Verizon and Cingular, but those speeds are obtainable, of course the correct spectrum and capacity has to be there to ensure those types of speeds. If everything is ...

New cards needed?

Any idea if the current HSDPA cards/devices will work with the upgrade or are new devices needed to take advantage of the newer speeds?

More specifically the newer PC cards (Sierra Aircard 875/Option GT Max 3.6) say they are capable of these HSPA speeds, but they do not claim to be HSPA "capable".
These are the current HSUPA cards when it comes with Sierra Wireless;
“Sierra Wireless’s newly unveiled HSUPA-capable product line includes two AirCard® PC cards, called the AirCard 880 and the AirCard 881; two corresponding AirCard ExpressCard...
