AT&T Completes 850MHz Roll-Out in NYC
As part of a planned series of network upgrades, AT&T has now lit up the 850MHz spectrum that it has in New York City. City residents should see improved network performance. AT&T recently did the same in Atlanta and San Francisco.
Anyone in NYC? Atlanta? San Fran? Anybody!!!
Testimonies please!!! Testimonies anyone out there!!! Atlanta? San Fran? NYC? Anybody???
I want to know exactly what the real world experience is like wtith 850 3G. Preferably from a consumer, not a fanboy.

and share your results, I am very curious.
linked Yahoo/PCMag article is poorly researched
"In New York, San Francisco and many other places, AT&T owns a large 40 Mhz chunk of valuable 850-MHz spectrum."
Wrong. In a given market, a Cellular 850 MHz licensee controls the Cellular A-side 25 MHz license, Cellular B-side 25 MHz license, or both (for a total of 50 MHz). No Cellular 850 MHz licensee controls "a large 40 Mhz chunk" in any market.
In both NYC & SF, AT&T controls the (former AT&TWS) Cellular A-side 25 MHz block of Cellular 850 MHz spectrum.
For other examples, in Atlanta, AT&T controls the (former BellSouth) Cellular B-side 25 MHz block of Cellular 850 MHz spectrum and, in DFW, the (former AT&TWS) Cellular A-side 25 MHz and (former SBC) Cellular B-side 25 ...
Also, this stuff about 25mhz chunks of 850, to me that sounds like there is 825mhz MISSING from the signal ...
