The fastest broadband in my area is 10Mbps from CenturyLink. Our previous address had 15Mbps from TimeWarner. So 28 is alot faster than whats available to me. Granted only 6 people use LTE on AT&T right now.

Orlando, FL is being tested right now and ready to be lit up....

Tampa, being such a big city, should be lit up sometime in the first half of next year.

Get what in Tampa soon? 4G LTE, sure. But not this Lower 700 MHz D/E block 6 MHz unpaired spectrum that the FCC just approved AT&T to purchase.

No current AT&T LTE infrastructure nor devices are compatible with this spectrum. AT&T will not to use it until ~2014, when AT&T deploys LTE-Advanced supplemental downlink carrier aggregation technology.

When AT&T buys a brain, then they can work on the harder stuff.
Their Customer service, voice-network is more than lacking.
Fix that first. Makes more sense. No one needs to see all that spectrum numbers BS. Does not impress.
People skills and building on what there is already and making it better first would be a smarter move. Smile

An increase in spectrum actually does help improve the quality of service for the end user. More spectrum allows the network to handle more users. Congestion is a huge problem for networks and the better the network performs, the better customer service will be.
