AT&T Looks Beyond HSPA

Article Comments  98  

Jun 14, 2007, 5:40 PM   by (staff)

AT&T Vice President Chris Hill today revealed the carrier is looking to build out an LTE network for next generation voice and high speed data. Long Term Evolution (LTE) is the GSM Association's next specification beyond HSPA. It offers fast data speeds like mobile WiMax and is expected to be easier to deploy in large networks. The carrier has not announced when they will begin building out the new network, but it is part of a $20 billion project expected to take up to 10 years to complete. AT&T has previously committed to upgrading its current HSDPA network to HSUPA in the near future.

Long Way Off

First of all, $20 billion over 10 years isn't that big of a network investment. Sprint has invested $3 billion in WiMax already and is set to spend another $7 billion in 2007.

Also, LTE isn't even a standard yet. Once it is a standard it takes time to create the equipment, test, revise the standard, tweak the equipment, mass produce the equipment, and install the equipment... And that doesn't even touch on the fact that they still have to develop handsets that can do LTE/HSDPA/GSM soft handoffs.

BTW link to show that LTE won't even be in its first draft until Sept 07. --> http://www.3gpp.org/Highlights/LTE/LTE.htm
I agree... at&t invested 1 billion in the Los Angeles area alone over the past couple of years, and most of it still doesn't have 3G.
Oh great comments Mustang, and welcome to the the forums! LOL! HAhahahahahahhaWTF ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

It was just f***ing announced and you are already talking crap about it? OF COURSE ALL THIS STUFF NEEDS TO BE DONE ITS HOW YOU START BUILDING...

I give credit to sprint

Surprised Yes Sprint maybe the most powerful for a period of ten years wimax is capable of 70 megs download which is 490 megs of bandwidth and 30 megs of 210 megs of upload bandwidth the protocol sequence the death star at&t has released and will be building over time is capable of 50 megs of bandwidth upload 350 megs of bandwidth and the download link is 100 megs that is 700 megs of bandwidth over time at&t will be the data war between Verizon and Sprint sprint will be the most powerful for a long period of time but at&t deploys this amzing remarkable technlogy sprint will be left behind this is the truth people!!!

Yeah okay AT&T employee. Cingular just copies Sprint. Sprint starting offer mobile TV back in 2001, so Cingular starting using Mobiletv, which Sprint helped build by the way. Sprint stared offering fully media-play phones, so Cingular starting doing i...

WOW!!!

NothingĀ“s stopping the new ATT
Are you seeing any indications at all that they're more aggressive than Cingular???

By aggressive, I mean, the network, the services, and the handsets, will be way, way different by this time next year, and maybe even surprise us.

So,. . . do yo...

Believe it when we see it

Ya i will believe Rolling Eyes that when i see it.. How many Markets are still with out 3G? They said Buffalo was getting 3G on June 7th.. here it is June 15th and still nothing..
Rolling Eyes
Rolling Eyes
Gosh!!! Your right, both Buffalo, and Syracuse should be 3G cities by now!!!

Who knows, maybe T-Mobile will cash in on Cingulars PROCRASTINATION and launch 3G in cities that Cingular doesn't yet have 3G.

I could've sworn I read an article saying...
