AT&T fires up 850Mhz in Atlanta
AT&T Fires Up 850MHz 3G In Atlanta (Phone Scoop)
I still hate AT&T but love my iPhone so this makes me happy. The drop call rate and spotty coverage was starting to bug to even make me consider JBing my iPhone to move over to Tmobile. This is a step in the right direction ATT, now for that MMS support and speed bump to 7.2 mbps.

So this upgrade isn't giving you 7.2 yet? That would be really cool if it did. I'll be in Atlanta from the 19th to 24th this month, I'll have to see how the speeds compare to Miami.
Although, I did notice when I was in Atlanta for the 4th of July weekend my speeds were around 2.0 mbps download, a record for me. My high speed in Miami is about 1.5.

There are no WiMax phones and there won't be one for a long time. IMO, WiMAX is a pointless investment. I get that it build off of wifi but it is not compatible existing GSM or even CDMA towers.
I spent 4 years at Nokia networks (NSN) and I can pretty much guarantee that LTE is the format to jump on. As ATT reinforces 3G with 850MHz towers.....it'll be backwards compatible whenever LTE 4G networks goes live.
BTW, ATT and Verizon(CDMA) have made investments towards LTE(thanks to data hungry iPhones, lol)....the future might start to look clearer.
