Cingular Launches 3G International Roaming Data Plans
Cingular will begin offering customers a one-stop shopping experience for global wireless broadband service. Cingular GlobalConnect features unlimited domestic data usage on the company's BroadbandConnect and EDGE networks in the United States and 100MB of wireless data usage on networks throughout Asia and Europe.

The company will also provide customers with a single LaptopConnect card that connects to multiple wireless data networks in 95 countries.

The Cingular GlobalConnect service will feature the Option GlobeTrotter GT MAX LaptopConnect card. The card is a tri-band (850/1900/2100 MHz) UMTS/HSDPA (Universal Mobile Telephone System/High Speed Downlink Packet Access) device that has a unique retractable antenna design. The card uses Cingular's Communication Manager to access HSDPA/UMTS/EDGE/GPRS cellular networks and public/private Wi-Fi networks.

Cingular GlobalConnect will offer two international wireless data usage plans: a North American plan (US$109.99 for 100MB) for travel within Canada and Mexico, and an Overseas (US$139.99 for 100MB) plan. Both include unlimited data usage on Cingular's domestic data networks.

These plans will give mobile professionals the ability to use their laptops to access applications, e-mail and perform other tasks while traveling within the U.S. and abroad. The Overseas plan will provide access in more than two dozen countries, with service planned to be offered in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Singapore, Spain and other major areas in Asia and Europe. With 45 countries currently offering UMTS service, Cingular expects to provide 3G data roaming capability in additional countries throughout the year.

The Option GlobeTrotter GT MAX LaptopConnect card will be available for US$99.99 when customers purchase a two-year unlimited BroadbandConnect contract or a one-year GlobalConnect plan.
