Why teckspud hates AT&T? Well he seems to hate everyone and everything moment to moment of course.HEY Solipsism you 2 guys must be good friends because you keep feeding him day and night. Full well knowing that teckspud is here only to agitate and wise crack. He is very witty and funny. But by now he feels to me weak and tasteless sad old bearded fat man sitting alone in mom's basement. Playing with all his names. kid /seahawk /on and on. and yet you have endured much more than me . and still you feed him. StillYouFeedHim
Dude i fear you may be in that cold basement with him.
First of all, I’m optimistic that people can learn and grow. Secondly, Seahawk Fan has been banned, which is ironic considered one of his last posts, which you replied to, was “Have you ever wondered why Tech Stud, Italian Kid and People like me
are allowed to stay in this room without being kicked out.”
As for the AT&T, GSM Is lacking but I find my calls on 3G (WCDMA) more prevalent each month. I have never had an issue with dropped calls, but I don’t doubt that it is an issue with people in certain areas. GSM just isn’t as robust as CDMA.
I hope that AT&T has planned well for the next iPhone launch but I have my doubts and think that we’ll get a similar congestion like last year. Hopefully the tech pundits, like David Pogue, will give us another test this year so we can compare two equivalent testing scenarios a year apart. Hopefully some will also use last year’s iPhone so we can get a feel for how well AT&T has improved their network.
4G (LTE) is a long way off, even for Verizon. AT&T still has plenty of growth in 3G with better HSUPA/HSDPA and then HSPA+ before they’ll need to move to 4G. I’m in Las Vegas this weekend and my internet speed isn’t a good as usual, but still more than adequate and at only 2 bars in my hotel room, which may mean that they are still on 700MHz spectrum.
edit: Weird, it has my server being ~1000 miles away from my location. It lists my closest server as being in Kansas.
