Why should they?

No reason to "invest" in upgrades, when between Verizon & AT&T, they have the USA market sewed up. Sprint & T-mobile? Yeah right...after the T gets bought by the death star, Verizon will, even though they say they won't, buy Sprint. With AT&T & Verizon owning the market, they can relax and quit spending money to upgrade to better or faster service. Why should they? Don't like the service hahahaha says AT&T, go to Verizon, we don't care. Don't like the service hahahahah says Verizon, go to AT&T, we don't care.

Hmmm... good call? Bad call?

I think it's a rather good call on AT&T's part. Sure, LTE may be faster than HSPA+, but the HSPA+ and enhanced backhaul benefits all users, not just those few who decide to shell out the extra dough for an LTE phone, plus it would help those with LTE phones since they can use HSPA+ as well.

I'm sure some people will come in saying that they should barrel into LTE, but I think building out what you have and working from there is the better idea.
Very true. Plus the build-out of HSPA+ benefits LTE users as the system has built-in scalability and reverse-compatibility. If you do leave an LTE footprint, you revert to HSPA+, HSPA, etc. instead of dropping out of higher-speed access completely.
