Something strong.

Surely no one believes that the new Cingular/AT&T will be any name but
Cingular. There have been several articles in the trade rags lately that says
that Cingular is looking to make the whole nation ORANGE!

Have you noticed AT&T's Wirelss' homepage is even getting some orange
creeping onto it and the AT&T name is a small afterthought in the
corner.

I did read somewhere that they (Cingular) might opt to keep the mMode
name for data purposes.

In addition i will say that cingulars cust mgmt website for ones own
account is far better than AT&T's. With Cingular you can see exactly
what all is on your plan, options, abilities, etc... with AT&T you
can't on GSM.

Pardon your pun. Intentional or not. As Orange is one of the biggest
names worldwide in wireless telecom outside of North America.
Established by Hutchison Whampoa as a GSM 1800 network in the UK in
1994. Later acquired by Mannesmann. Who was subsequently acquired by
Vodafone. And finally divested to France Telecom. Now, France
Telecom operates several GSM networks in the EU re-branded as Orange.
While Hutchison Whampoa has retained the rights to the Orange brand
for many of its GSM or CDMA networks in Asia & Oceania.

:-) I know that, however, I was refering to color and not name brand. Cingular
+ AT&T Wireless (will) = Cingular. And their "School Colors" are ORANGE!

But thanks for the "lesson" on Orange as I didn't know that they had split the
company. I thought that Hutchison was still all inclusive.

Hi John...

Sorry if I came across a bit pedantic. I realized exactly what you
intended regarding Cingular's color scheme. But I was also quite
humorously struck by the pun potential of your statement.

Hutchison exited the UK market in 1999 or 2000 when it sold Orange to
Germany's Mannesmann. W/in a year after that, Vodafone's expansionist
then-CEO Chris Gent successfully waged a hostile takeover for
Mannesmann. As Vodafone UK plus Orange gave Vodafone an unduly
hegemonic share of the UK mobile market, Vodafone was regulatorily
required to divest Orange. And France Telecom was the buyer. FT has
subsequently applied the Orange brand to other GSM properties it
controls in the EU.

Hutchison is now back in the UK market yet again w/ 3 (or Hutchison 3G
UK). Of the five UMTS 2100 licenses auctioned in the UK, four of the
five went to the GSM incumbents (Vodafone, British Telecom's spun-off
mmO2 nee BT Cellnet, Deutsche Telekom's T-Mobile nee One-2-One, FT's
Orange). Hutchison Whampoa was the lone new (or returning in this
instance) entrant to garner a W-CDMA license.
