AT&T Fires Up 850MHz 3G In San Francisco
AT&T Wireless Defrauding Consumers
Where are those AT&T fanboys who were proud of the fact that GSM uses the same bandwidths for both ...
I use a Nokia N95, how does the Iphone overwhelm ATT's network more than my Nokia N95 BOTH of which are 3G handsets???
And by the way, just because I don't own an Iphone doesn't mean I don't brownse the web a lot on my phone, so let's not be assuming that Iphone users brownse the web more than everyone else does. This most recent billing cycle, I used just under 3gigs of data on my N95. Peoplese habits vary, it's ...
Here in the Chicagoland area, I have definitely noticed an improvement in coverage and consistency in ATT's 3G network over the past year. I know they have both 1900MHz and 850MHz spectrum here, but I don't know if they're switching to 850 or just lighting up more 3G cell sites (probably a bit of both).
So then how are webpages routed using Iphones? On the Safari browser. Directly through ATT's network? Or does Apple have some servers?
The topic of pointing out the iPhone is valid. TONS of people who never used their phones for data EVER have switched over to the iPhone, and are using a lot of data now. It's a valid point, not to discredit our Nokia friend there.
Also to the point of the post about AT&T charging for 3G service but recommending EDGE, thus defrauding customers - that's just plain retarded. 🙄 If you are say, in rural New York where there is only EDGE...
These are people who wouldn't be using the bandwidth at all, if there'd been no iPhone.
Personally my method of combining an Ipod & phone is the Nokia N95.
If CDMA is so great why is verizon spending billions to switch to gsm? LTE is a gsm technology.
Asserting that VZW is switching to GSM is akin to saying the Green family is switching from coffee to tea, and Vince is switching from juice to tea. Thus, Vince is becoming a member of the Green family. Do you see the fallacy?
VZW is not switching to GSM. LTE is not GSM, nor an exclusively GSM technology. Rather, it is an all IP, OFDMA based 4G technology that some GSM carriers and some CDMA carriers have selected for the next phases in the evolution of their networks.
