You can say what you want about the quality of AT&T’s network — and we know you will — but at least they are trying. In a barrage of press releases this morning, AT&T announced that it has spent over $3.5 billion on its network during the first six months of 2010. Some of the investments include $1.1 billion in California, $350 million in Illinois, $275 million in New York City, $225 million in New York, and $200 million in Alabama, North Carolina, and Tennessee. Anyone out there seeing improved AT&T coverage as a result of the investment? More →
Rest easy, residents of Wichita Falls, T-Mobile 3G is coming your way this month! Ok don’t get too excited as the info above is hardly confirmed at this point, but an alleged screen shot of an internal T-Mobile memo is making the rounds this morning. The memo allegedly lays out the company’s 3G upgrade path for the remainder of 2009. If it turns out to be real, the document definitely lists some pretty big markets such as Tucson, Eugene, Cleveland and a bunch of cities across Texas, though plenty of major markets will still be left hanging unless they’re covered by those oh-so-sketchy and more/and many more mentions. Sit tight while we ping a few T-Mobile ninjas to see what we can drum up along the lines of a confirmation.
