Today AT&T said that it had implemented a series of software upgrades to improve its backhaul capabilities. The software should provide for a more consistent wireless data experience for all customers. AT&T says that it has six HSPA trial markets up and running, which include Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and Miami. AT&T expects to have the bulk of its network running 7.2Mbps HSPA by the end of 2010. AT&T didn't say anything about HSPA+.

New Maps? Owen Wilson again?

De La Vega and his minions just don't get it do they.
I don't think that was Owen Wilson. Wasn't he the one that played in behind enemy lines?
De La Vega lacks ambitions.
AT&T needs a NEW & FRESH CEO that actually has a vision.

Glad to see that they are updating the speed of their 3G network. What about the people that haven't seen it yet? How about you spend the money to "expand" it first.
Why? AT&T's 3G already covers 75% of Americans. I think the point is that is all they care to cover. Frankly, I don't have a problem with it. If they have signed up the amount of subscribers that they have in Metro areas then yes provide those ind...
how whiney New Yorkers are.
Actually, they are expanding services. They've spent a ton of money between the last part of 2009 and even more planned for 2010 for turning 2G to 2G/3G towers as well as purchased Centennial's markets for covering certain markets. I'd say that + incr...

Endgadget: "AT&T kicks it into overdrive, rolls out 7.2Mbps everywhere -- but there's a catch"

AT&T was quick to steal a smidge of T-Mobile's thunder today with the announcement at an investor's conference that has sped up its 7.2Mbps HSPA software upgrade to all 3G cell sites, moving up the original deadline of 2011. Here's the thing, though: they didn't really move up the 2011 date because 7.2Mbps-capable cells don't do much good without a wide-enough pipe to feed them on the back end. That's the other part of AT&T's one-two punch for boosting network speeds, and that part won't be wrapped up for a while yet. The company says that it expects "the majority" of the mobile data it handles to operate over its upgraded back end ...

OF COURSE they didn't say anything about HSPA+. . .

AT&T didn't makd any mention of HSPA+ because they lack ambition. And they NEED a new fresh CEO! ! !
De La Vega lacks vision.
agreed, De La Vega is a good manager not a good leader. He knows how to keep a company going NOT how to change the industry. That is the difference between great visionaries like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Eric Schmidt and good managers like Olli-Pekk...
