The 900 MHz band can provide 2-4 times larger coverage area than the most commonly used 2 GHz band, thus reducing network deployment costs significantly especially in the rural areas. It also improves the availability of 3G services indoors due to better radio signal propagation characteristics. Finland is among the first countries that have allowed WCDMA 3G operation at 900 MHz band.
And TelstraClear used 850MHz. Hmm. Doesn't say anything about the performance though.

Performance will be the same

Just proves how backwards the whole GSM camp really is. You would be gutted if you were a carrier who contributed to the 30b quid paid for 2.1GHz licenses.
And people mock CDMA! At least CDG had the foresight to use existing 800MHz TDMA band.
GSM could have acquired the 450MHz band in Europe left over from NMTS. Oh well CDMA won that one.
