AT&T Wireless today announced agreements with Nortel Networks and Ericsson to deploy what is expected to be the first commercial WCDMA network in North America. Ericsson previously supplied equipment for AT&T's current WCMDA test network in Dallas, TX. The new agreements mark progress on AT&T's commitment with Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo to launch WCDMA service in four U.S. cities by the end of 2004. DoCoMo launched the world's first commercial WCDMA network in 2001, and holds a 16% stake in AT&T Wireless.
