Cingular today announced that it has selected Lucent to deploy a WCDMA/UMTS and HSDPA trial network in Atlanta. The 3G network will use 1900 MHz PCS spectrum to test WCDMA/UMTS technology, supporting data rates up to 384 Kbps. Cingular will also test the network with Lucent's High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSPDA)software upgrade. HSDPA boosts WCDMA data rates to as high as 14.4 Mbps. The network, expected to be operational later this summer, will only be used for internal testing.
