No More “Faux-G,” Congressional Bill Demands Carriers To Detail 4G Speeds

Ever since the 4G race got heated between T-Mobile and AT&T after realizing they were lagging behind Verizon's LTE and the Now Network's WiMAX networks, the meaning of 4G became increasingly defiled.

AT&T 4G: Not all HSPA+ Phones are Created Equal

At the Samsung/AT&T event today, the Samsung Infuse 4G was officially announced, and slated to be available May 15th. Our hands-on is here. It was also called the "first phone to support hspa+/hsupa at launch”.

AT&T Admits To FCC Its Network Unprepared For iPhone And iPad

AT&T officially filed with the FCC yesterday seeking approval for their acquisition of T-Mobile. Among the many reasons they gave, one that stood out was an admission that the current state of their network cannot handle the onslaught of iPhones, iPads, and other new smartphones and tablets. Thus, the T-Mobile acquisition is necessary to ensure an improved and stable network for customers.

AT&T deliberately breaks Samsung Focus HSUPA? Not so says carrier

The Samsung Focus ended up being our unofficial pick of the first-wave of Windows Phone 7 handsets, not least because of its brilliant display and speedy uploads.

AT&T blame Alcatel-Lucent HSUPA kit for sluggish uploads

AT&T has blamed software bugs in Alcatel-Lucent HSUPA hardware for the apparent 3G upload throttling observed by some users in the US recently.  According to the AT&T statement, Alcatel-Lucent are working on a software fix for the bug - which is affecting less than 2-percent of AT&T's customers, the carrier claims - but until then users with HSUPA-capable devices will be limited to regular 3G UMTS upload speeds.
