Posted by Yenova | Sunday, May 31, 2009 | | 0 comments »

A report on iLounge has stated that AT&T will be upgrading their current 3G network to provide a more faster mobile internet speed. The network will be upgraded with a High-Speed Packet Access technology which will provide users with 7.2 mbps speeds, doubling the current 3G network speed. This upgrade will give their network an extra step closer to the deployment of an even higher-speed LTE (4G) network in the future.

Here's a snippet of AT&T's official press release:

The upgrade to High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) 7.2 technology is part of AT&T’s plan for continued investments to deliver the nation’s best mobile broadband experience – the ideal combination of speed, coverage and best device line-up. AT&T today has the nation’s fastest 3G network and has attracted more than twice the number of smartphone users than any other competitor.
The report from iLounge has also stated that:
AT&T has announced plans to enhance its mobile broadband coverage by nearly doubling its wireless 3G spectrum in most metropolitan areas to provide better in-building coverage and network capacity. These improvements will be rolled out later this year, and the company expects to have them fully deployed by the end of 2011.
