Finnish carrier TeliaSonera and Nokia today announced that they have successfully tested the world's first EDGE-WCDMA packet data handover in a commercial network. This new feature provides seamless data coverage while offering the fastest data rates available at any given moment. The step is important, since most WCDMA deployments around the world are only covering urban areas initially. TeliaSonera's commercial network has been upgraded by Nokia to support intersystem handovers (ISHO) nationwide and the connection was conducted using the Nokia 6630 - the world's first phone capable of EDGE-WCDMA ISHO.

EDGE/WCDMA

I wonder how long after WCDMA goes live in most urban areas this roaming feature between it and EDGE will go into effect? I'm assuming we won't see this for quite some time due to the logistics of the pending merger of ATTWS and Cingular's networks.
I'm guessing that by the time that the UMTS service is launched "nationally" by Cingular, this will be available. This type of handoff has been anticipated and I'm sure it will be available soon after it's available in the rest of the world. You have ...

One way to read this is that operators want UMTS in the densely populated/urban areas and EDGE elsewhere.
