Qualcomm demonstrates 1xrtt running at over 144Kbps in both directions. Take a look at the transfer time for a 1 Meg file....

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 16, 2000-- QUALCOMM Incorporated (Nasdaq:QCOM - news), pioneer and world leader of Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) digital wireless technology, today announced the successful completion of the world's first third-generation (3G) CDMA 1x Multi-Carrier (1x) wireless data transmissions featuring up to 153 kilobits per second (kbps) on both forward and reverse channels.

The transmissions were conducted between a CDMA wireless handset using the QUALCOMM CDMA Technologies (QCT) MSM5000(TM) Mobile Station Modem (MSM(TM)) chipset and system software, and a base station using the QCT CSM5000(TM) Cell Site Modem (CSM(TM)) chip. A number of applications were demonstrated, including live two-way video conferencing, simultaneous streaming video, chat, web browsing and File Transfer Protocol (FTP) operations. The video conference demonstration was conducted between a stationary laptop and an in-vehicle laptop while driving. Both systems used Qualcomm's 3G CDMA 1x trial handsets to establish Over-The-Air (OTA) packet data connections running at greater than 144 kbps in both directions simultaneously.

During an FTP data transfer transmission, the QCT 3G 1x system transferred a one Megabyte (MB) file in 59 seconds -- compared with an estimated 4.8 minutes required for a 28.8 kbps landline modem (and 2.5 minutes, 2.2 minutes and 65 seconds, respectively, for 56 kbps, 64 kbps and 128 kbps landline modems).
