Zero bars doubled. Sweet.
I keep forgetting about the backhaul, even though kdarling constantly brings it up (at least I think it's usually him he knows a lot about it though). So, this could be utterly useless, but just sound good for a commercial.See, this is what angers me about AT&T. They are thinking of adding more speed to the connection from your cellphone to the cell tower (that's cool) but not from the cell tower to the backbone!! 3G speed increases only make sense if the f*cking backhaul is there to support it!
Obviously in its current condition it is not. I for one, accept that. AT&T has to step up that fiber + ethernet deployment to cell towers if they wish for their service to truly be faster. No if they do that in unison with their software + hardware updates, then go for it.
On a side and more realistic note. How is AT&T going to deploy all those hardware upgrades when they are costly and the tech is about to be outdated? Surely it's better to just deploy the hardware for pre-4G LTE and get it over with.
It's me and him that bring the whole backhaul issue. He argues more in favour of Verizon technological advantage, which in my opinion is bogus as both (AT&T and Verizon) will require to make equal investment size to bring the networks to date. Hardware is never cheap and recycling, well that can leave many pains.I keep forgetting about the backhaul, even though kdarling constantly brings it up (at least I think it's usually him he knows a lot about it though).

THIS!I don't know about you guys, but I'm less interested in speed and more interested in not losing my signal.
