Cingular has completed a test of HSDPA (what Cingular has decided on for 3G). The test was successful: bq. 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 Cingular HSDPA 3G network with launch with download speeds of up to 3.6Mbps, but it will be able to scale to a theoretical 14.4 Mbps once more advanced handsets are available.
