    Smile Question about HSPA+

    So now that we know AT&T is pushing out LTE eventually, the 4G phones like the Attrix will be able to tap into LTE right? Just want to make sure they dont require another device to use LTE that has to be made with LTE in it. From what Im getting out of it, LTE will be incorperated with HSPA+?

    Our Pre Ordered Attrix's should be comming veeeeeeery shortly

    Nope from what I have read they will not work with LTE. I have heard a few people mention the Atrix has a LTE antenna but I didnt see it listed on Motorola's site.

    By the time LTE is rolled out nationwide, it'll be time for an upgrade anyway. They haven't even got their whole HSPA+ network up. Hell, even Sprint is getting on the LTE bandwagon, so I hope the carriers all set up good roaming agreements.

    Even if LTE is out, how many are willing to pay Verizon's price of $50 for 5Gb's? I don't use my personal cell for work, more for pleasure, not sure if I can dish out $50 plus the voice plan.

    Current plans says end of '11 beginning of '12 for LTE rollout. If you live outside a major metro area count on that being longer Im sure.

    These are enjoyable speeds for me. Honestly, I don't care if I get 7mbps down or not, as long as its not the lackluster verizon 0.1mbps

    As end users, its pretty easy for us to get caught up in all the marketing propaganda the wireless providers pump out to drive sales.

    The linked article is a pretty good read that was intended for industry particpants but easy enough to understand for the rest of us.
