AT&T Wireless made headway this week on the wireless data front with several announcements from partners. Sony Ericsson announced a strategic alliance with AT&T Wireless to support the carrier's roll-out of EDGE services in the United States. Sony Ericsson also announced its dual-band GC82 EDGE PC Card for 850/1900 MHz GSM networks. The card, which provides high-speed data for laptop PCs, will be jointly marketed and distributed by both companies. In a separate development, Palm has started selling its Tungsten W handheld with AT&T Wireless GPRS service. AT&T Wireless initially will not sell the device in its stores, relying instead on Palm's established sales channels.

Verizon Wireless has completed refarming its 1900 MHz spectrum in the country's largest city, an effort first begun in 2014. The company recently converted the last remaining 10 MHz block from CDMA 3G to LTE 4G, which means Verizon is running LTE on 20 MHz of its Band 2 spectrum in New York City.
