AT&T Boosting 3G Network Speed
Beyond that little 'new iPhone' hint -- which should come as no shock to anyone who realizes that WWDC is just weeks away -- we're told that AT&T's network could soon support 7.2Mbps download speeds. Currently, the 3G network tops out at 3.6Mbps. We're told that the carrier has already boosted speeds in a few test locations, but now it's looking to take those trials out to the public.
Of course, the move is interesting giving just how close we are to initial LTE rollouts. Long-Term Evolution, or 4G, is what AT&T has committed to, and if plans go well, we could see LTE test markets lit by as early as next year. To be fair, anyone who has used data-intensive devices on AT&T's network has likely hit a rough patch or two, so we're certainly not complaining about making improvements now.
