AT&T has announced that it will have completed a country wide rollout of its HSUPA 3G service by the end of June. We’re guessing that a little voice from Cupertino might have been hurrying AT&T along. You know, just like AT&T boosted EDGE speeds last year on the iPhone’s launch day. Just saying.
The network offers theoretical speeds of 1.4 Mbps down and 800Kbps up, which AT&T claims “will be as speedy as logging onto the high speed Internet service that many consumers enjoy at home.”
We’re not sure exactly who those poor customers are, or how they could possibly ‘”enjoy” speeds like that, but if AT&T keeps spending at the $5 billion-a-year rate it is now, we should expect to get a real mobile internet just in time for the iPhone 3.
