AT&T boosting 3G upload speeds, up to 800 kbps

Newattlogo_2I don’t see the details behind this, but InformationWeek tells us that AT&T is set to announce a boost in their 3G upload speeds. Within the next two months, AT&T customers should see uploads in the 500- to 800-kbps range, which tells me this might be a quiet HSUPA rollout. Currently, AT&T offers HSDPA with EDGE fallback and as a customer of that service, the boost in upload speeds will be most welcome. My last speed test noted downloads of 1663 kbps but only 330 kbps going back up. While most folks don’t need speed upload bandwidth for basic e-mailing and such, this upgrade could pave the way for higher quality video conversations between phones. Let’s see what and when the company officially announces.
