AT&T desucks the 3G in Colorado Springs


Colorado Springs: Home to 415,000 people, scary-ass gravity-defying boulders, and, as of this morning, AT&T’s 850 Mhz 3G Network.

As we saw in San Francisco and New York last month, Colorado Spring’s towers have now been tweaked to dedicate the 850 Mhz spectrum to 3G data rather than TDMA, which theoretically ups the number of simultaneous users the data network can handle. We’re still not quite sure how effective this upgrade is at solving the bottleneck that sprung up right around the time the iPhone launched – but we’re just happy they’re trying.
