AT&T testing speeds for HSPA+

AT&T testing speeds for HSPA+
With Sprint and Verizon going for 4G, AT&T's Mark Siegel has stated that they are in no hurry to switch over to 4G themselves as they are interested in utilizing the remaining network that the company has and upgrading it from HSPA to HSPA+ before they even implement LTE.

Chicago is the current base for AT&T for testing the higher speeds in question and they are experimenting with speeds of 7.2Mbps for downloads which can go upto 14.4Mbps.

Siegel also pointed out that Sprint and Verizon are rushing to LTE as they lack the capacity to increase speeds on their CDMA networks.
