As far as I can remember there always has been a lot of confusion when UMTS came out, people were getting confused about UMTS, WCDMA, HSPA, CDMA and GSM. Thank goodness we are well beyond that period. UMTS/WCDMA was a big deal back then because it allowed operators to use the same technology so their devices were compatible with each other. this was a first for wireless networks in Canada at the time, now everyone takes it for granted that you can use a device from one network on other competing networks. So the decommissioning of 2G CDMA is a significant milestone which means we are moving forward with technology in Canada. Good Stuff
