AT&T Doubling 3G Speed (And SEXTUPLING Soon)!!!

AT&T is doing some big network upgrades. The current 3G cap on the AT&T network is 3.6 megabits per second - that'd be increasing to 7.2 Mb/s. They're doing software upgrades
at all the base stations to get this boost.

HSPA (the technology behind AT&T's "3G" network) can be pushed to 14.4 MB/s - but due to technical issues and the readiness of HSPA+ (call it 4G), AT&T will be skipping over that upgrade to move their network to full on 4G HSPA+ later this year. That's speeds of up to 21 Mb/s, nearly 6 times what they've currently got.

This could be the "significantly faster internet speeds" rumored to be coming on the new iPhones rolling out this June.

With the rumors of Apple gearing up for a slightly larger touchscreen device, plus this new high-speed network... and the addition of HD content in iTunes Store as well as HD iPhone video output in upcoming models... streaming media is getting so much better.



I can't wait to get my new iphone this summer!

nice.... but i'll bet all the 3g phone that are capable of "4g" will have it locked out so you have to buy a new one. another way to make you spend money.

Its not really a new chipset just an updated 3g but dubbed "4G". Should work the same on all the 3g phones. The 3.0 software is going to be siccck.
