Kinda scary to think whats going to happen when ATT launches LTE; and the problems they will face with that.
Just another testament on why Apple should move to VZW
Once VZW adds 30+ million iphones to their network, I'm sure you'll see a slow down too.
I don't think that would occur. It's my understanding that CDMA and EVDO are inherently more efficient than GSM/HSDPA. Additionally, you can roam on any CDMA/EVDO tower whereas AT&T (for the most part) has to go it alone. Verizon has the luxury of roaming among Alltel (now Verizon) and Sprint towers.
It's not like this is new to AT&T anyway. I performed a HUGE migration of worldwide users to a BlackBerry system and I had numerous people returning AT&T Blackberries because their service was awful.
