AT&T Increases 3G Download Speed by 20%

AT&T today announced a more than 20 percent increase to the top end of the company's typical 3G network downlink speed range and a 50 percent increase to the top end of the typical uplink speed range for wireless laptop card customers. The upgrades are results of recent network enhancements, including the deployment of High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) technology across all existing 3G markets before the end of June.

AT&T's 3G mobile broadband network is available in more than 275 major U.S. metropolitan areas. Later this month, AT&T will become the first U.S. carrier to have fully deployed High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) technology across its entire 3G network. By year-end, the company plans to offer 3G service in nearly 350 major metropolitan U.S. areas.

The new typical wireless broadband speeds for LaptopConnect customers:
● Downlink - Between 700 Kbps (kilobits per second) and 1.7 Mbps (megabits per second), formerly 600 Kbps to 1.4 Mbps
● Uplink - Between 500 Kbps and 1.2 Mbps, formerly 500 to 800 Kbps

Customers who use AT&T's LaptopConnect wireless cards can use these new speeds to access large files and multimedia applications faster than ever before. The new typical speed ranges reflect the results of recent measurements performed during thousands of tests in multiple markets.
