I’m a wireless junkie. I love the latest and greatest technologies. DC is a fantastic place to live and be a wireless junkie, due to all the wireless providers trying to jockey for position with the government. The new 3G network Cingular is putting up promises burst speeds of 1 megabit, and sustained transfers at 400-700 kilobits per second. Service isn’t cheap, but if you absolutely positively need the fastest service available, this would be the way to go.
The coverage area suggests that all of the District, Arlington county, half of Fairfax, all of Alexandria, and as far to the northwest as Gaithersburg and to the Northeast as Perry Hall (on the other side of Baltimore!) will be covered by the new 3G service. Not at all shabby.
