Successful 3Mbps Test In Atlanta

Cingular Wireless and Lucent Technologies announced that they “have successfully completed the first HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) data calls on the third-generation (3G) UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) trial network deployed by the two companies in the Atlanta market. In recent tests the HSDPA-enhanced network delivered sustained over-the-air data rates of more than three megabits per second (Mbps), and supported a wide variety of high-bandwidth multimedia services including high-quality streaming video, as well as fast downloads of high-resolution images and other large files.” The offering (with a theoretical maximum speed of over 14Mbps) is expected to be available in major markets in 2006. Awesome!

    3G will never work the way the marketing guys have everyone believing; this physics just don’t work. Below is a link to one biased vendors explaination of the problem. Sure they may be trying to sell Wi-Fi as the solution, but the math used to justify it is pretty clear.

    Matt, even if it is not as fast as they’d like us to believe, I’ll take any better throughout I can get. 🙂
