    Company to Build 32 Cell Sites to Better Serve its ALLOVER(SM) Network

    PITTSBURGH, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Cingular Wireless, the country's
    largest wireless provider, announced it will invest about $33.2 million
    throughout Western Pennsylvania in 2005 to install 32 new cell sites as part
    of a $6.2 billion commitment to enhance and expand its ALLOVER(SM) network
    The network improvements will enable Cingular customers in the region to
    experience the highest level of voice service quality and offer some of the
    most advanced data services to more customers in more places.
    "Better coverage is what wireless consumers want, and better coverage is
    exactly what Cingular is delivering," said Dori Marks, vice present and
    general manager for the Tri-States Region of Cingular. "We continually make
    improvements to our network so that our customers have a quality wireless
    In the previous two years, Cingular invested more than 11 million dollars
    and installed nearly 30 new cell sites to improve service and offer enhanced
    services throughout Western Pennsylvania. Cingular customers will have
    access to some 45,000 cell sites nationally by the end of 2006. The company
    already offers customers access to the largest digital voice and data network
    in America, and Western Pennsylvania is an important part of that network.
    "This investment demonstrates our commitment to aggressively continue to
    provide better quality service to our customers," Marks said. "That strong
    customer focus is one of the reasons Cingular recently reached 50 million
    customers -- the first wireless carrier to attain this important milestone.
    Customers know they can rely on us to meet their needs. That's why they
    choose us and why they stay with us."
    Cingular's ALLOVER network now covers more than 270 million people, and
    provides service throughout the United States including the top 100 markets.
    Customers on specific calling plans now have access to the largest mobile-to-
    mobile calling community in the country - with free access to more than
    50 million people.
    As part of its network build out and enhancement, Cingular has stepped up
    efforts to ensure its investments to extend coverage and enhance quality are
    realized. The company expects its employees and those of other third-party
    companies to drive test its network nearly 30 million miles over the next year
    -- that's the equivalent of more than 50 round trips to the moon.
    The company's network growth relies on advanced GSM/EDGE technology. GSM
    is the world standard for wireless communication, used by more than a billion
    people in 200-plus countries. In fact, more than 70 percent of the world's
    total wireless market is GSM. The widespread use of GSM offers Cingular
    customers the ability to use a large variety of GSM "world phones" and devices
    in more than 125 countries to make calls and access data services in more than
    70 countries.
    For customers interested in wireless data services, the company's EDGE
    network -- the fastest national high-speed data network in America -- provides
    average data connections of up to 135 kilobits per second in more than 13,000
    cities and towns and in areas along nearly 40,000 miles of highways.
    Last but not least, Cingular also offers faster network speeds through its
    UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) data network. UMTS offers
    average data connection speeds between 220 and 320kbps.
    As part of its 2005 investment, Cingular will deploy high-speed third
    generation (3G) UMTS/HSDPA (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System /High
    Speed Downlink Packet Access) service to customers in 15-20 major markets this
    year. The company expects to offer its 3G services in most major markets by
    the end of 2006.
    The 3G service will offer average data speeds between 400-700 kbps and
    bursts to several megabits per second. Customers using the 3G service will be
    able use a wireless handset to make a voice call and simultaneously check e-
    mail, browse the Internet at speeds similar to broadband wired services, or
    even access a variety of video services.
