AT&T network performance still hindering iPhone tethering?

AT&T still remains reluctant to introduce US iPhone customers to tethering and judging from their latest response to Engadget's inquiry, we wouldn't expect it anytime too soon.

"iPhone tethering has the potential to exponentially increase traffic, and we need to ensure that we're able to deliver excellent performance for the feature – over and above the increases in data traffic we're already seeing – before we will offer the feature."

AT&T Admits LTE Rollout Will Begin in 2011

AT&T has openly admitted that they have selected Alcatel-Lucent and Ericsson as their LTE equipment suppliers and even better is the fact they are on track for a 2011 LTE rollout. 2011 is dead on with the information we gave you almost one year ago stating that LTE would in fact be here on AT&T in 2011 with the slight chance it would be delayed until 2012.

Now don't fret when it comes to the existing 3G network that many of you have issues with. AT&T promises to keep working to improve that for you as well. They are not abandoning you... yet.

iPhone Skype App Going 3G: "Real Soon"

For those of you holding your breath for Skype to work over AT&T's 3G network, you will soon be able to relax as Skype has told TiPb it's only a matter of time. From their blog:

<

blockquote>You may have seen other apps offering calls over 3G, but we’re holding ours back for a little bit longer. Why? So that we can give you the very best audio quality we can. When our 3G-capable Skype for iPhone app is released, it’ll let you make calls in wideband audio, giving you greater clarity and fidelity – because that’s what you expect from Skype.

We've been waiting since way back in November, when AT&T decided to allow VoIP over their 3G network, and Apple's iPhone 3.2 SDK for iPad has now removed the last hurdle.

It's no surprise we heard earlier that AT&T has been working with Apple to improve their network before the release of the highly anticipated Apple iPad. Perfect timing don't you think?

More from Skype via video, after the break!
