CDG, 3GPP2 Publish UMB Specs
Sep 24, 2007, 12:04 PM by (staff)
The specification for Ultra Mobile Broadband, also knows as EV-DO Rev. C, was published today by the CDMA Development Group and the Third Generation Partnership Project 2. It includes a number of upgrades for the CDMA family of wireless technology, including peak download/upload speeds of 288 Mbps and 75 Mbps, respectively. Along with the faster speeds, it has increased data capacity, reduced latency and covers larger areas. UMB is the 4th generation of wireless technology in the CDMA path, while LTE is the 4G technology for the GSM path. With Verizon's recent indication that it might choose LTE rather than UMB, and Sprint's move toward WiMAX, the future of UMB and which companies will deploy it is unclear.

If you have any questions, I will try to help. (UMB or LTE)
And from what I understand, LTE isn't finalized. They ask for at least 100MBps but it could be more possibly. Wouldn't UMB fulfill the needs of the LTE st...
You have any questions or concerns please ask and I will try to assist you. Either on LTE or UMB.
Yes, what websites do you copy & paste from?
288 mbps and 75 mbps...
Like your entire FM dial is about that much
My thoughts The "Art Bell" Way
What if the One World Government has decided to tap all future wireless technologies and has chosen LTE as the best choice. With At&t and Verizon customers alone, that's a lot of calls and downloads to see.
I just think that it would be nice to have the same phones that are in Europe and Asia without mods.
WiMAX and UMB
THAT'S ****ING NUTS!!!!!
HSDPA does it's job with 5MHz of spectrum
still even 74 MBps is way better than 7.2 MBps
