AT&T's 3G Network Getting a 6X Kick In the Upload Pantalones

Illustration for article titled ATTs 3G Network Getting a 6X Kick In the Upload Pantalones

Cellphones on AT&T's 3G network will be getting a speed bump that could be worth 6x. Right now, AT&T's HSDPA networks are limited to 130kbps of upload, but when HSUPA (High speed Uplink Packet Access) is pushed live in October/November, the network will be good for 500 to 800kbps with HSUPA devices only. (Who knows when they'll reach your market, and it'll be data cards first.) Theoretically, that puts it on par with EVDO Revision A speeds for sending junk. [Wireless Info]

And yet, AT&T still can't build a network that lets you talk on a clear connection while riding in a NYC taxi.

You'd think that by 2007, they would have figured out how to provide clear, drop-free service in the biggest freakin' city in the country.

Sigh.

The crap I put up with to use my iPhone.
