SPOTLIGHT: The competition cometh


Cingular Wireless has just launched a wireless network allowing customers to use 3G to access Cingular BroadbandConnect, which is available to nearly 35 million people in 52 communities around the US. Cingular's 3G network is the first service (or, rather, the first widely available service) in the world to use HSDPA technology. HSDPA is the high-speed evolution of GSM/EDGE. GSM is the world's most popular wireless technology, which is used by more than 1 billion people in "210" countries. (This particular claim by the GSM Association is puzzling: There are only 192 countries in the world.) Report
