    So it sounds like HSDPA provides roughly a 4 fold increase over wCDMA in the uplink and downlink - in the real world.

    I would say that this is a good increase. It is better than the 3 fold increase consumers get when they switch from GPRS to EDGE.

    Okay, my question is if Cingular can't market their data on American Idol who is going to buy it? :)

    The landline companies providing. Backbone support for wireless carriers have got to be making a killing.

    Cingular is making there "portal" available to numerous content providers and taking a "fee" to allow the providers (Yahoo, Google, etc.........)access to the UMTS network. That's how they are going to make it work. :D

    I agree with the fact that 14mbps is a hype because it is a test with a single user for demo purposes. In a real life scenario with live network operation, no way can one user get that kind of speed.

    That's where it starts.
    When it was said man will go to the Moon,
    many said it's a hype.

    rock on! I'm now in the "analogy hall of fame" :cool:

    as a side note, cable modems are capable of 38mbps. Even if providers didn't institute artificial caps on our throughput we still probably would not ever actually see such speeds. Just like we'll never actually see 14mbps on HSPDA.

    Are you referring to seeing HSPDA @ 14mbps? I suppose it's possible if in fact they decide to run OC-12's into every site. That'd be rather spendy, though.

    If you want max through-put speed then yes, but fiber has gotten very cheap lately. :D

    Guys, I find it disconcerting at how units and SI prefixes are tossed around here in this discussion. Capitalization matters.

    M = mega
    m = milli
    B = Byte
    b = bit

    Thank you, particularly if you understand what I'm pointing out.

    I'm aware that there's a difference between MB, Mb and mb... I just don't care :rolleyes: The only one I actually capitalize is MB. Outside of that, everyone and their grandmothers understands mb to mean megabits.

    Jones, I believe that he meant "hype-ku."

    I remember the wCDMA hype of 2 mbps. The maximum delivered downlink is 0.384 mbps. Using your analogy, let's assume that the lunar mission performed like this. The command module would have made it into orbit, but no where near the lunar surface.
