AT&T Upgrading 3G Network From 3.6 To 7.2Mbps, HSPA+ On The Way?
Scott McElroy, AT&T Mobility vice president of technology realization, announced recently that the company is updating their 3G network nationwide to increase downlink capacity from 3.6Mbps to 7.2Mbps. The speed bump will be the result of software upgrades installed on the base stations. Further rumors suggest that the next upgrade after this one will bypass increasing speeds of the HSPA network and moving directly to HSPA+, which the next iPhone is rumored to support.
