Default Cingular upping HSDPA Speed to 7.2Mb/s in 2007, EV-DO upgrade stilla year away

According to Qualcomm, Cingular will be upgrading their CDMA based HSDPA
data network to 7.2 Mb/s in early 2007.

Meanwhile EVDO Rev B, which will allow download speeds of 46 Mb/s is not
scheduled for deployment by Sprint and Verizon until 2008, and Rev C,
which ups the download speeds to 280Mb/s is not scheduled for deployment
until 2009. So HSDPA will be much faster than EV-DO, for 2007 anyway.

It is alleged that SMS claimed:

I thought Cingular was GSM.

For voice it is, but for data, both GSM and CDMA voice carriers use
variants of CDMA. Qualcomm gets their money no matter what!

For GSM is CDMA a 3G technology, or was it used in older versions? Sorry if
the question sounds a bit dumb, but I need to ask.

GSM as well as iDEN are TIME division multiplex protocols...

Data is now blurring those lines, but GSM's legacy, is TDMA.

Any CDMA would be 3G (or higher) on a GSM network.
