can att really advertise they have the fastest network now? won't that be a false claim?

honestly, i dont think anyone can say anything anymore. sprint says its reliable, but i used to get dropped calls all the time. at&t says its fastest, but im on verizon and its faster. verizon has a good network, but prices are a bit steep for some..

On paper it's a false clam, but T-Mobile currently doesn't have the architecture to even support those speeds on their network. Hell, AT&T barely does as evidenced by the issues their users are having. It's all advertising, all 4 of the carriers.

sure they do, its just tuning of the network. u dont think the towers that they installed 8 months ago were hsdpa capable? its a software upgrade. ATT is doing software and hardware upgrades.. which is why its taking longer.

You also have to have the backbone of internet to be distributed.
