Cingular to complete a 3.6Mbps HSDPA call

Cingular Wireless became the first wireless carrier to demonstrate 3.6Mbps HSDPA network by completing a call at the 2006 Consumer Electronics Show. In order to conduct the call a laptop computer, equipped with an Option Wireless PC Modem Card and QUALCOMM's MSM6280TM chipset were used. The world's first network, based on HSDPA technology is called BroadbandConnect. It increases UMTS's download speeds to an average of 400-700 Kbps. As last month BroadbandConnect is currently available in 16 U.S. markets, including Las Vegas. Cingular Wireless have plans to introduce the HSDPA service in most major markets by the end of 2006.
