I just traveled with someone to London and their Sprint phone said [sic: stayed] in the hotel in a bag while I had perfect connectivity.

    It will be real interesting to see what happens to CDMA technology over time.
    Well this is interesting topic and should probably be moved to new thread.

    couple of points to be made
    1) the world is not just Europe and USA. In fact, the 4 most populous countries in the world all use CDMA (India, China, Indonesia, USA).

    2) there are 200 million CDMA users according to

    3) on my last trip back from UK to Chicago, I started chatting with guy who was in Europe for the sole purpose of telco who's thinking about starting CDMA network in the UK. He would NOT tell me the company (NDA) I got the impression it was not USA-based company. He thought they had deep pockets. Anyone with the journalist bent willing to dig up some news on this?

    for full disclosure
    I do travel to London. I do have T600 Sprint for the faster speed. When in London I use my T600 as PDA (so does not stay in the bag) and use Orange pay as you go phone. Not perfect solution but for me works. Even if my T600 worked in the London, I'd probably be to cheap to pay roaming costs and still have Orange pay as you go phone.

    just some thoughts

    I've not done the speed test. However, I did conduct my own personal real world test recently. I'd thought I'd share the results.

    My brother-in-law just got a T600 on T-Mobile. I own T600 on Sprint.
    On recent visit to my brother-in-law's house, I conducted the following tests holding both phones next to each other - not scientific - interesting anyway.

    Blazer web browser test
    Surf with Blazer built-in browser to and www.accuweather (mobile page). Winner T-Mobile by hair - could just be reflex time; however it seemed to be repeatable.

    PDAnet test
    Load trial version of PDAnet on to T-mobile. I have PDAnet on Sprint
    T-Mobile 57.6K - not really much use to me; Sprint 145k - useful speed.
    winner in Sprint.

    one item discussed in other threads that surprised me at first was why does PDAnet get faster speeds than other tests. I think the answer is simple: the CPU of laptop is much faster than CPU of Treo 600 - hence the bottleneck switches from the phone to network.

    Download of Excel spreadsheet XLS file of 29K
    T-Mobile - still waiting - basically just stalled.
    Sprint - ah - now I know why I put up with Sprint - download finished in few seconds (I forgot to time it - since it was no contest) - Winner - Sprint in landside.

    my conclusions
    If you want to surf or get basic emails - then GSM is fine. If want email with attachments or PDAnet - then Sprint only way to go for the time being.

    Being that I travel to china every couple of months, and swap for a local chinese sim card, I'd have to stick with gsm, it's standardized worldwide.

    it looks like for sprint users, the average range of data transmission is from 90 to 105 kbits per second.

    a few will report burst speeds of up to 120 or 147 kbits per second, but this is not the norm.

    so id say THE average is 100 kbits/ second for sprint

    This is what I got on my Treo 600 Sprint model from San Mateo, CA with apparent best reception (all bars on) for a 100k file:

    Attempt kbit/sec
    1. 82
    2. 106
    3. 69
    4. 58
    5. 66

    Latency is about 2.9 s

    Why is my result so bad?
