AT&T Doubles up The 3G in Atlanta
"Throughout much of the country, AT&T’s 3G can be wonderful. Step into a major city, however, and it tends to grind to a halt. Here in my hometown of San Luis Obispo, for example, it soars; anytime I head to San Francisco or New York, however, it’s practically useless. Speeds are all over the place, with pages loading one time and then timing out the next.
Slowly but surely, AT&T is making changes to their network to improve 3G in major cities. By piping data over the 850mhz spectrum in addition to 1900mhz, they theoretically up network capacity and coverage indoors. The latest to get the upgrade treatment is America’s thirty-third most populated city, Atlanta, Georgia. Fulton, DeKalb, Cobb, Gwinnett, North Fulton, and Fayette Counties and the Downtown areas should all see general improvements beginning today."

Reason: clean up
That's great news. I was just in the city today. *nyc* and the web was super slow, BBM wasn't working right nither, and phone calls weren't going thru, but once I stepped outside the city, now it works perfect. Can't wait for new york to get fixed.

The service right in the city, I go out to one of the boros and it works fine. When I had Sprint it was bad.
