not when you have to spend 19 billion to get yourself to where you should have been 2 years ago

Well hopefully this is a good step towards the commitment to HSPA+ by the end of the year.

And now, after upgrading all existing equipment to suit the iPhone 4, the LTE launch will cause a whole new quagmire for AT&T and their data savvy users. Let's hope AT&T is a little more than proactive in those efforts to ensure they are, in fact, ready this time.

This is good, but, not all issues are fixable and that is not AT&T's fault.

Haven't noticed a damn bit of difference. I can only imagine how bad it's going to get when the iPhone 4G comes out... Maybe I'll switch to T-Mobile when they get the N8.

Well what i think is funny is where i live at in ky verizon has 3g and even a small carrier called appalachian wireless has 3g.... att puts towers up without 3g built in. Its pointless to put up towers and not include 3g....Thats why i wont pay 30 a month for a data plan that i cant even really use.

I can't wait to see the fireworks show when the iPhone 4 hits the market. What I mean by fireworks is the affect of all those iPhone 4s activating on AT&T's inferior network and blows up the towers. AT&T should have expanded their 3G network from the beginning. Playing catch-up sucks when you have a high-speed device like the iPhone 4 getting ready to take off.
