AT&T is bringing faster 3G speeds to Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, LA and Miami by years end. Of course, you won't get speeds anywhere near 7.2Mbps, but you should get a modest boost in performance nonetheless. [AT&T]

Okay geeks of Gizmodo, help me understand: The problem with AT&T (as reported by AT&T) is that there are way too many iPhones using way too much bandwidth causing amazing slowdowns on their network. Will a faster 3G network actually help this problem in any way when the issue is the number of users? Sure, once half of the iPhone customers jump ship to Verizon next year things should improve (and test Verizon's "It's the network"), but until then, isn't the faster speed something that few people will truly notice except at 3 a.m. when all of those blasted iPhones are recharging?
