The GSM family of network technologies dominates the wireless market with more than 850 million subscribers, far more than the rival CDMA family of technologies, with only about 150 million subscribers. However, the next generation of the CDMA-family, CDMA2000 1x EV-DO, has caught on much faster than the next iteration in the GSM-family, WCDMA.

MobileInfo Comments and Advisory: It appears from various independent reports that GSM operators are having greater difficulty in moving to 3G than CDMA operators. GPRS is only an incremental step and EDGE and full-fledged 3G appears more difficult steps to reach. CDMA operators with dedicated support from Qualcomm are having more success in implementing 1xRTT and CDMA 2000 1x EV-DO. End users are reporting faster data speeds with 1xRTT CDMA than with GSM/GPRS versions of the network.
