First HSUPA Data Card Approved

The FCC today approved the Option GlobeTrotter Express HSUPA, the first HSUPA data card for use in the US. The new card from Option has Tri-band (850/1900/2100) HSUPA - the latest 3G standard capable of download speeds up to 7.2 Mbps and upload speeds over 2 Mbps. The card also offers compatibility with older 3G protocols, WCDMA and HSDPA, as well as quad-band EDGE. This spring AT&T announced it would be rolling out an HSUPA upgrade to its 3G network later this year. This card will likely help AT&T launch the upgraded service.

Eat your heart out VERIZON

with uncrippled handset UI's and Faster data speeds all i have to say is HAHA!!

and as far as WiMAX is concerned this gives BOTH SPEED AND DISTANCE!!!

A commonly held misconception is that WiMAX will deliver 70 Mbit/s, over 30 miles (48 kilometers). Both of these qualities are true individually, given ideal circumstances, but they are not simultaneously true. WiMAX has some similarities to DSL in this respect, where one can either have high bandwidth or long reach, but not both simultaneously.In
urban environments it is more likely that these devices will not have line-of-sight and therefore users may only receive 10 Mbit/s over 2 km.

Hey man, let me know when HSUPA or hell even HSDPA covers over 240 cities ok?
it works the same way for any cell phone company. the further you are the less speed you get.

Yeah, thas' great an' everything but...

AT&T should focus on rolling out 3G in more places first BEFORE it performs an upgrade to its current markets later on. Come on now, AT&T has had 3G for awhile now but has yet to roll it out nation wide.

Thas' a damn shame...
I've noticed ALOT more 3G coverage or at least here in the bay area, there used to be pockets like whoa but everywhere i go is now covered so AT&T has at least 1 happy 3g user!
...
Nuff said. End of story. Could not have said it better myself. I could care less if ATT introduces a 4G card, a 5G card, or even a 20G card. WIth barely 50% of the country covered, they really have put the cart before the horse.
I Agree AT&T should finish the entire Network . However living here in Denver Metro i dont have any 3G coverage to complain about so i guess it evens out. Razz
you dont make money by upgrading the rest of the country, you make money by offering a new product that sound good and more subscribers will buy.....durr....its better that they have these cards out now rather then later.

Unimpressed.

This is not that impressive when metro areas as large as Pittsburgh are still without 3G.

Come on AT&T, I've been waiting patiently...
