AT&T Brings More Speed to the Yard: It's Better Than Yours

AT&T Fastest 3G

Despite the iPhone's Mobile Safari browser rendering pages faster on Edge than many "competing" devices can on lesser browsers with faster connections, the race to speed the feeds continues, and AT&T has not only taken an early lead, but is positively driving towards the 3G finish-line.

Amazing what a little technology (and a billion dollars) can do. cites a recent survey where AT&T's HSDPA trounced EVDO Rev A., averaging 755kbps with bursts peaking at 1.6mbps(!)

In Apple-parlance: It's a screamer.

But wait, there's more: AT&T intends to increase its network speed by a factor of 5 by next year. That's a quintuple screamer right there, never mind the upcoming switch to 4G LTE speeds...
