EarthLink Ending Wireless Service for Older Handhelds

One of the early wireless networking options for handhelds was CDPD (cellular digital packet data), which offered a data-transfer speed of 19.2 Kbps. GoAmerica and OmniSky built businesses around offering this service to handheld users with Minstrel modems. After struggling financially for some time, last year both companies sold their subsciber bases to EarthLink, which was trying to diversify itself from being just an ISP that offered dial-up service.

However, AT&T, which formerly provided the CDPD hardware for EarthLink, is upgrading to CDMA 1x. Therefore, EarthLink had to tell its subscribers that it was ending its service for older devices that depend on Minstrel modems. The service will end September 30.
