Cingular and Lucent today announced the first successful data calls on Cingular's HSDPA test network in Atlanta, using Lucent equipment. The tests reached sustained data rates over 3 Mbps. Initial HSDPA devices will support 3.6 Mbps peak speeds. As faster devices are released, the network can ultimately deliver theoretical peak data speeds of up to 14.4 Mbps. HSDPA is an enhanced version of UMTS/WCDMA 3G technology. The trial network was first announced in May. Cingular has already contracted with Ericsson, Lucent, and Siemens to provide HSDPA network equipment that should be launched most major markets by the end of 2006.

Shouldn't Cingular really be concentrating on improving their poor coverage?
I can't speak for everyone, but my Cingular coverage is great, and my coverage is all I really care about lol. So as long...
CINGULAR HAS THE BEST COVERAGE!!!!
Cingular has contracts with hundreds of little company's for "Roaming" coverage in those area's but, You pay nothing for "Roaming", Because it's not really roaming! Verizon, The supposed "Best Coverage" company SUCK
So will this drive the monopolized carriers of landline based High Speed internet to lower prices since there is now fixin to be viable competition?
Unfortunately not. At least not in the near future. ...
