AT&T Wireless and Cingular recently announced significant progress in the final stages of each comany's GSM overlays. AT&T Wireless invested over $2.5 billion to add or improve 15,000 cell sites in the past 12 months. Combined with new roaming agreements, the upgrades doubled the company's GSM coverage area. Meanwhile, Cingular announced that at the end of the first quarter, its new GSM/GPRS network was available to 94 percent of the company's service area. 100 percent coverage is expected by July. Cingular also expects to have EDGE high-speed data technology deployed in "substantially all" of its markets by the end of summer. In mid-March, Cingular requested approval from the FCC and DoJ for its planned acquisition of AT&T Wireless. The company expects the transaction to close before year end.
