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.
