ATTs idea of HSPA+ is a shame

All these billions, and billions ATT takes in from data revenue and they can't even deploy real HSPA+, HSPA 21, HSPA 42. ATT really isnt any different then they were 3yrs ago. ATT's idea of HSPA+ is a shame.

Hey, if you like being with a company that takes in billions and billions but is still stuck in 2008, that's you, I don't. I prefer the year 2011, and speeds of 10/15mbps.

At&t won't budge until their customers actually demand change. Until then, they are going to remain the fat greedy slobs that they are.

Jay, I don't see why you care? Will you give it a rest already dude? Is VZW paying you to be their internet forum spokesfanboy, or do you do it all for free? If you're doing it for free, wow that's very generous of you...you must REALLY REALLY REALLY love verizon...

They'll have LTE just like VZW (eventually..we can only hope), and when they do, you'll be dropping down to HSPA+ speeds when you're out of an LTE area. On VZW, when you leave an LTE area you'll be dropping all the way down to EVDO...ouch..that's a pretty long drop isn't it? looks painful.

haha thanks man...I dunno, I definitely agree that AT&T is taking FOREVER but that's always kind of been their way of doing things. I think (hope) eventually their 4G offerings will be much more similar to what verizon has now.

It's still plenty fast and fast enough for most people. I agree that their LTE roll out should have been their focus for this year but, for whatever reason, it doesn't seem to be. I remember ATT saying that LTE would be rolled out this year. Now, unless they are planning to roll it out in a large scale, I don't see them doing it in a few months time. But, then again, maybe they are waithing until more LTE phones are being made. Even with Verizons LTE network, they only have a few phones capable of using it.

They don't even.have that many HSPA+ 21 markets. Even if they do, not many phones they have are HSPA+ 21 capable. While T-Moble continues to roll out HSPA+ 42.

Almost their entire network is HSPA+ 14.4, however...at least according to AT&T

Some markets, not many are HSPA 21. I Just think it's sad that ATT doesn't mive firward lime T-Mobe does with HSPA+ 42.

I just think it's sad that you base all of your wireless opinions on advertising and heresay.
