AT&T gives iPhone users 3G speed bump

It looks likes AT&T is gearing up for the launch of the 3G iPhone: it’s announced it plans to boost its HSPA speeds a bit.

AT&T says the downlink will rise to between 700 Kbps and 1.7 Mbps from 600 Kbps to 1.4 Mbps and uplink will rise to between 500 Kbps and 1.2 Mbps, from 500 to 800 Kbps.

Rather hilariously, it refers to the last iteration of its network as a “blazing-fast 3G (third-generation) mobile broadband network”. Blazing fast?! I guess in the US maybe it is – after all T-Mobile USA only switched on its 3G network last month. Still, any speed bump will be good for all those browsing-hungry iPhone users.
