    Because in CT, Cingular is the old SNET TDMA service. In NY and NJ, Cingular is sharing VoiceStream's GSM network.

    I think it will be sooner than a lot of people think. If you got to the Connecticut Siting Council's home page (sorry I don't have the link off hand) they are the people that ALL providers have to go through to get approved to put up new towers and to upgrade exisiting ones.

    Lately ATT and Cingular have been putting in a lot of request to upgrade towers. All I can think of is that it is GSM.

    I am sure it will be soon.

    Hopefully in 2003...but I meant not anytime soon as in this year. The process take time from the moment the request is made, to the moment the switches are installed and working. Cingular announced that they will have their GSM overlay complete by 2004. Hopefully CT will be sooner than that.

    Not that it matters to me but for the ones that have Cingular I have seen a lot of towers being worked on. I come home on I-84 everyday and see a lot of people hanging off the towers doing something to them.

    Hopefully later this year or early 2003. I did read somewhere and I get remember whether it was att or Cingular but one of them is coming out with GSM in CT in Sept on the 24th I believe....

    AT&T is coming with GSM in september, they are opening new stores in brass mill(wtby) and in Westfarms, i know this because they already have agent stores in those malls, and now they are going to open their on stores, and the agents are mad. anyway Cingular are schedule for GSM in october but if the test don`t do good it may be delayed for next year. i`m sure they don`t want to have problems on christmas time.
