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.
