Just two short years after digesting AT&T Wireless to the tune of $41 billion, Cingular has triumphantly announced that the two company's networks are now one. Of course, they'd promised all along that the integration process would take two years, so whether the announcement has basis in reality or is nothing more than a dog-and-pony show to keep the investor types happy is anybody's guess. For their part, Cingular says the "completion" (their phrasing, not ours) will allow them to devote more attention to building out their fledgling HSDPA network, presumably in an effort to narrow the coverage gap with its EV-DO competitors -- but we suspect we know a few people that would like to see a little more elbow grease put into that integration stuff first.
