AT&T Upgrading 3G in Prep for Next Gen iPhone?

AT&T Fastest 3G

Just prior to the original iPhone's release, AT&T's operation "Fine Edge" brought faster, stronger, better 2.5 / 2.75G speed to the GSM masses. This year, in a strangely reminiscent move, reports are coming in that AT&T is showing their 3G HSPA network the same type of love:

For the past few months we’ve been seeing average download speeds between 500 - 800 kbps with a spike here and there. This morning’s tests however, are yielding between 1400 - 1500 kbps.

Gee, could another iPhone release be on the horizon?

AT&T Upgrading 3G in Prep for Next Gen iPhone?

The faster the better. Even though most people will probably find that 3G is such a battery hog as to not use it that often, it will be nice to have it when needed.

This is great news. If I had to guess AT&T doesn't want to lose the business with Apple. Believe me it's in their best interest...........................
