    Lol! Maybe there will be iPhone 4G next year, just not on AT&T. That would be embarrassing IMO.
    Yeah, I don't think Apple would do that, but pretty sad that at&t is holding Apple and the rest of the world back from the next gen technology. I think at&t was just trying to stretch their investment in 3G as long as they could and now with the iPhone sales and new customers rushing to them they have been caught off guard. Hopefully it just gets better from here...I mean it can't get worse right? (My bad, I should not have said that )

    I don't really think AT&T is holding anybody back when it comes to 4G technology. Verizon is going to use the same LTE technology AT&T is going to use and they're no closer to release than AT&T.

    True, but what about the rest of the world? I guess I just assume they are ahead of us, but don't really have any facts

    I agree with you about AT&T stretching their investment in 3G,but I believe all telco's are trying to do the same thing.

    From what I understand 4G is going to be really expensive to deploy,so I think telco's are trying to recoup from the upgrades to 3G before moving on. Technology is just advancing faster than the company's are willing to invest in.Of course,this is all speculation on my part.

    I have read about 4G testing in some countries,but I don't think it is widely deployed anywhere yet. I'm actually surprised Wimax(4G) is deploying here already. A guy from Clear came into my job yesterday offering service on their Wimax network. It seemed like a pretty good deal as long as the coverage is there. You max out at 6mbps for $40 a month unlimited.It's only available in Atlanta,Portland and Las Vegas at the moment.

    My g/f is in Atlanta right now for work. I'll be tagging along next time she works there in August. I'll have to see if I can check that out.

    They have it for home service,but you don't connect to a phone line or anything so you can take the modem wherever you go(from work to home),and they have a USB for laptop,but there's a data cap on it. Also the USB doesn't work on Mac's yet,so I'm out of luck for that.
