Cingular 3G

Cingular’s announcement of a real 3G network for North America is a serious canon fire across the other major carriers… This clearly declares that they want to big both the biggest and the baddest in town. T-Mobile has yet to even make a formal EDGE (2.5G) statement…

Cingular today announced its 3G plans, an expected announcement after the AT&T Wireless takeover (Cingular now has ample spectrum for advanced data services). The UMTS/HSDPA third generation network will offer average data speeds between 400-700 kilobits per second (Kbps), and bursts to several megabits per second on capable devices. Nokia, Motorola and LG should all have devices out for the new network by this time next year. [MobileTracker]
