AT&T says that its HSPA+ network will cover almost 250 million people by the end of this year. Engadget reports that at a Reuters event, AT&T Operations CEO John Stankey made the claim and also said that AT&T will double its 7.2Mbps speed limit on the current HSPA network. This comes on the heels of T-Mobile's statement that the smaller carrier's HSPA+ coverage will reach close to 185 million potential users.

3G coverage...

...is last year's technology. By the time at&t covers all of their folks with it, Sprint will have deployed 4G in most of the major markets, & Tmobile will right there with big blue-- for a whole lot less $$$.
Tell that to the 99% of people who don't have 4G (WiMax or LTE).

Also, for cell phones, data speeds don't really mean much.

For those who WANT the speeds... 7.2 is pretty good: 7.2 DOUBLED is even better. Doubly better.

and available for 250m...

unbelieveable...

Here you have the two smallest carriers of the big 4(who are struggling for revenue), pushing the two largest ones to get off their butts and into gear with offering faster networks. In all reality, it should be the other way around.

More argument why we need the smaller carriers.
"Unbelievable"...............sorry!
I totally Agree. If they would get up off of their lazy tail and expand and improve their service then they could really dominate the competition. Verizon in particular has so much potential if they would WAKE UP!
...
To coin a popular response...

Unbelievable? Where have you been? Old fat-cats never innovate unless forced. Why spend money when you get profits for free?

Innovation *NEVER* happens unless forced.

Look at Microsoft. Internet Explorer.
...
Huh? What are you talking about?

Stop huffing paint thinner please.
...
This is why everyone should cheer Sprint and T-Mobile on. They are never going to supplant Verizon or AT&T but their mere existence helps keep those two juggernauts in line. Sure AT&T and Verizon consider each other their only true competition, but ...
