Thumbs up My city FINALLY got 3G!!!!



And yes, I'm happy. I've been complaining to AT&T about the lack of 3G capability here, and it seems as though they finally listened to me. I told them that if I don't have it here soon, I was going to move my staff over to Verizon, and just like that....we have 3G!

Still waiting here. At least in the city I work I can get 3G. Edge sucks.

Wow, I can't imagine using EDGE all the time. If my city didn't have 3G, I definitely wouldn't use an iphone.

I got my HTC Evo when it first came out but my city still doesn't have 4g yet, in spite of being the 5th largest city in the US.

I've been stuck with EDGE for a bit over three years. It sucked. Until I got WP7, I'm a happy camper with 3G.

I'm happy for you as well, Doc.

Guess Montana isn't so bad after all. We've had 3G here for ages... Although I am on Verizon.

We've had 3G for quite a while but recently got T-Mobile's equivalent to 4G HSPA+

Jackson, MI

We have 3g on Verizon, Sprint, T-mo

ATT has yet to deliver 3g to my area.... that's pretty much the whole reason I avoided the Captivate and ended up going with Sprint for their Epic. (I've had a boner for the Galaxy S phones since they were announced).

It's kind of shocking that areas don't have 3g coverage yet... but sad. It shows how far behind ATT really is with network maturity

Welcome to the 21st century DD lol.

BTW my city has 4G on Sprint and Verizon is rolling out their 4G here in January...

AT&T's a piece of ****. They have "3G" here but it's so overloaded and spotty no one really gets it. I can't stand AT&T. It seems like they spend no money whatsoever on their infrastructure, yet they don't mind collecting $100/mo from all their iPhone users, who pay for data plans they can't even come close to saturating.

Meanwhile I have unlimited data and 3G speeds practically all over the city with Verizon. And my Droid X devours data.

Don't be so hasty with AT&T, LOL.

Consumer reports held a poll. 58,000 said AT&T was the worst carrier. Over half of those that voted AT&T last, were iphone users.
