CDG claims CDMA2000 winning 3G war

Hey, it's a change from AMD and Intel fighting

THE CDMA Development Group (CDG) claimed CDMA 2000 continues to dominate the North American 3G wireless telecommunications market.

The grouping reckons to have more than 135 million 3G subscribers in the region, of which more than 22 per cent use EV-DO mobile broadband devices.

An increase in demand for mobile broadband is cited as the primary driver for the sharp increase in CDMA2000 operator revenues.

Pity, then that prime CDMA2000 supplier, Sprint Nextel, came bottom in a customer satisfaction survey recently conducted by J D Power.

And that's the fourth time running. Guess who came top? Yup. Good old T-Mobile - a GSM network run by Germans, dear. µ
