Leap Wireless has quietly begun using CDMA 1X Advanced networking technology in select portions of its network in order to more efficiently handle voice traffic. Leap confirmed that the Huawei Mercury, which went on sale in December, is its first device capable of using CDMA 1X Advanced technology, and that the carrier plans to offer more CDMA 1X Advanced devices during the course of 2012. By the third quarter of the year, all of Cricket's feature phones will include support for CDMA 1X Advanced. CDMA 1X Advanced can handle four times the number of voice calls in a single cell when compared to standard CDMA.
