Wireless Data Services Offer Steady Net Access
T-Mobile lagged behind AT&T and Sprint in eWEEK Labs' tests.eWEEK Labs tested wireless data services from T-Mobile USA Inc., AT&T Wireless and Sprint Communications Co. L.P., using a mixture of PC Card adapters and Bluetooth-enabled handsets provided by the carriers whose services we reviewed. Its probably no surprise that our favorite of the bunch was the fastestAT&T Wireless UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System)but we were also pleased with the performance of the AT&T Wireless EDGE (Enhanced Data for Global Evolution) and Sprint CDMA2000 1xRTT (Radio Transmission Technology) services we tested. Both of these services were fast enough to let us effectively get work done while out of range of wired or WLAN (wireless LAN) connectivity.
