    But there's a catch



    via Engadget Mobile: AT&T was quick to steal a smidge of T-Mobile's thunder today with the announcement at an investor's conference that has sped up its 7.2Mbps HSPA software upgrade to all 3G cell sites, moving up the original deadline of 2011. Here's the thing, though: they didn't really move up the 2011 date because 7.2Mbps-capable cells don't do much good without a wide-enough pipe to feed them on the back end.

    They haven't learned even now!!!! It's liking putting a gigabit router on a dial up modem!

    Yes, they have wireless that's 7.2Mbps, but the backbone to the 'internet' (the part where customers care), is still slow as crap.
    Oh great, customers can send stuff between eachother as 7.2Mbps -- really, is that necessary? Roll out the whole damn thing when it's ready and functional.

    They just wanted to compete with tmobile, who actually roles out the complete network and not be left behind.

    Its even worse than that, in reality everyone has the ability to take up more of the speed up with the same amount of resources being available, its like everyone having higher tap strength, you might get a performance boost here or there but u'll also see performance drops when other pple try to spike. In other words their network speeds will be even more unstable than they were b4.
