AT&Tractive – AT&T rolling out HSPA 7.2

by Guest on September 16, 2009

attAT&T is looking fast and furious – rolling out HSPA 7.2 in six cities by the end of the year.

Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, and Miami AT&T customers will be able to take advantage of up to 7.2 Mbps (theoretically) – providing they have the handset for it.  AT&T is hoping to have 6 new handsets and 2 new laptop cards to help customers capitalize on the new speeds.  The iPhone 3Gs is supposedly capable of achieving these new speeds.

President and CEO of Operations, John Stankey, says that the expansion “will enable our customers to continue to ride the leading edge of emerging devices and thousands of mobile applications.”  Shifting from 1.9GHz to 850MHz has allowed the company to speed things up for over 90% of their network, and this upgrade is paving the way to the LTE speeds of the future  >10Mbps

Bigger, faster, stronger, longer – AT&T is putting their money where their mouth is.
