AT&T gets plenty of well deserved heat from critics over their less-than-Verizon network. Now comes news that AT&T is upgrading data download speeds to High-Speed Packet Access; about 7.2 megabits per second, specifically beneficial to iPhone 3GS users. Peter Svensson of AP:
The iPhone 3GS is the only phone on the market now that will be able to take advantage of the speed increase. But AT pointed to five other “smart” phones and some USB dongles, which let laptops go online, that will go on sale before the end of the year.
The cities? Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, and Charlotte. Nothing about NYC.
