After announcing a few days ago that it plans to compete in the push-to-talk space, today Cingular has also decided to introduce high-speed wireless services in 16 US markets. Obviously part of the big picture that will help the company compete with Verizon Wireless and Sprint, the service should be expanded to most of the top 100 markets by 2006. Laptop customers will see the service first and handsets will be upgraded to high speed next year. T-Mobile—WTF? Wake up!
