· The addition of a new Radio Network Controller, a network management equipment that significantly increased network capacity.
· 20 new cell sites and eight more before the end of the year adding to the nearly 280 that already exist in Charlotte, 100% of those sites are 3G; and expanded 3G service this year to cover the I-85 corridor all the way to Greensboro and added 3G service in Hickory and Concord.
AT&T said that next year it plans to roll out faster 3G speeds in Charlotte, along with 25 other top markets, as well as a new technology, HSPA 7.2, that doubles the peak speed of today's networks.
What's all that mean to you? Hopefully fewer dropped and missed calls and faster downloads of emails and webpages.
Is anyone seeing improvement or just liked what they have now?
