AT&T Adds Wi-Fi Support to Its Enhanced PTT Service
AT&T has moved into phase two of its enhanced push-to-talk service roll-out, adding support for Wi-Fi hotspots.

AT&T has not provided any stats to reveal how well its Enhanced PTT is performing. AT&T's Enhanced PTT service is run on technology provided by Kodiak Networks.

But is it secure? And how about a head-to-head comparo?
BTW Phonescoop, what about having a head-to-head comparison of PTT performance & features from Sprint, AT&T and Verizon, with Nextel as the baseline to compare all three of the newbies to? Including when an AT&T EPTT customer has no LTE signal and it drops back to 3G signal, same for Sprint & Verizon, how does each perform when in...
