EV-DO Rev A may be enjoying its time in the limelight, but now AT&T wants its 15 minutes of fame too, announcing its plans to upgrade HSDPA with faster upload speeds. The upgrade will gradually roll out through the year (via software updates) and new PC cards can be expected by mid-year.


So what kinda speeds are we looking at? HSUPA will boost current 384 kbps upgrade speeds to 1.5 megabits per second. And before you can complain that HSDPA isn't available in your area, AT&T says they plan on adding another 58 to 65 HSDPA markets by 2008. Things are looking good for us WWAN fans.
