AT&T is in the process of doubling the capacity of its HSPA 3G network from 3.6Mbps to 7.2Mbps on the downlink. The upgrades are possible through software upgrades to its networking equipment. AT&T is actively testing the enhancements in two separate markets before rolling them out further. It is also certifying devices to run at the faster HSPA speeds. According to Scott McElroy, AT&T Mobility vice president of technology realization, the company will likely skip upgrading its HSPA network to 14.4Mbps and jump right to HSPA+, which can operate at 21Mbps. In addition to these capacity upgrades, AT&T is also expanding its 3G network into its 850Mhz spectrum to improve range and penetration.
