AT&T is preparing to kick off the availability of its improved push-to-talk service in November, according to company web sites. Previously, AT&T only said it would launch the new service by the end of 2012. AT&T spokesperson Mari Melguizo said in an email to Fierce Wireless, "Using AT&T's IP data network as the backbone for the solution we're trialing will provide faster connection times and better quality of service. Kodiak's InstaPoC technology is an advanced PTT service that achieves sub-second call setup times without requiring customization on radio access networks (RANs) or underlying cellular networks." When it launches, AT&T's improved PTT service will support a handful of smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S III.

All things for all people

Seems ATT is trying to make use of a service that has not done to well for them in the past. It will be interesting to see how these other features will make their service as good or better, than Sprint's.

It hasn't done well for them because they have few PTT phones and their PTT service was vastly inferior to Nextel's...but with Nextel folding the time is right to upgrade the service and see if you can snatch up some of the former Nextel customers.......
