AT&T Announces HSPA 7.2 Deployment
Sep 9, 2009, 8:15 AM by Rich Brome
AT&T today announced specific plans for upgrading its 3G network to provide double the current data speeds. HSPA 7.2 will be deployed in Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and Miami by the end of the year. By the end of 2010, the company will have upgraded 25 of the top 30 markets, and 90 percent of its 3G network area by the end of 2011. AT&T is simultaneously upgrading the backhaul connections at each tower location, providing each tower with faster data connections to the network and the Internet, sufficient to support not only HSPA 7.2 but even faster LTE technology in the future. The company expects to have six HSPA 7.2-compatible smartphones available by the end of the year, (already available are the iPhone 3GS and HTC Fuze,) as well as two new laptop data cards.
