AT&T Wireless EDGE service goes global
AT&T Wireless begun offering customers the a tri-band EDGE/GPRS PC Modem Card for laptops. The new Sony Ericsson GC-83 EDGE/GPRS PC Modem Card (850/1800/1900Mhz) gives customers the ability to use one device to access either high-speed EDGE or GPRS wireless data connections in the United States and in many countries across the world. EDGE high-speed wireless data connections are now available in areas of Brazil, Canada, Chile, Finland, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Puerto Rico and several other countries. When traveling in areas where EDGE has not yet been enabled, the modem operates at GPRS speeds in more than 50 countries where AT&T wireless maintains roaming agreement. The previous model, the Sony Ericsson GC-82 was a dual-band card (review available here).

"We've expanded the reach of our services and are giving our customers the ability to access information wirelessly at some of the fastest speeds available," said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president of business data solutions at AT&T Wireless. "AT&T Wireless is pleased to be the only U.S. carrier to offer multinational companies and business travelers a single device that delivers the power of EDGE, the fastest national wireless data network, and the flexibility to be connected to essential business applications even when traveling abroad."

AT&T Wireless EDGE service is available across the United States in more than 7,500 cities and towns and in areas along more than 30,000 miles of highways. Customers can expect to receive average data speeds between 100-130kbps, with bursts to 200kbps, when using the modem card and a laptop. In addition to the wireless modem card, AT&T Wireless has several EDGE handsets available that can also be used as modems for wireless connections. According to 3G Americas, a wireless industry organization, more than 60 wireless carriers worldwide are expected to deploy EDGE networks in the near future.

Customers can receive a free Sony Ericsson GC-83 modem, after rebate, valued at US$249.99 when they sign a two-year agreement on the AT&T Wireless Unlimited Mobile Internet US$79.99 Data Plan.
