CDMA2000 was huge in 2005

The world of 3G has become a heated battleground for market supremacy with CDMA enthusiasts on one side and GSM aficionados on the other. The CDMA Development Group (CDG) officially announced some major success for the CDMA2000 standard in 2005, with penetration into 67 countries across 6 continents. Indeed, there were 143 CDMA2000 operators at the end of last year, including Verizon Wireless, Sprint Nextel, and Alltel.

The next phase of CDMA goodness is doing quite well also. The number 1xEV-DO networks doubled—29 networks in total at the end of 2005—and the growth seems to be continuing. Experts predict that number will grow to 70 within the next few months, in addition to the commercial launch of 1xEV-DO Rev A.

“CDMA2000 is the most widely deployed 3G technology today,” says Perry LaForge, executive director of the CDG, “already serving 10% of the total wireless users worldwide, and is at least two years ahead in the evolution to broadband and next generation all-IP services.”
