AT&T's CTO, John Donovan, said that 80 percent of AT&T's network has now been updated to HSPA+, IDG News Service is reporting. Donovan said that the HSPA+ network should offer up to 2.5x the speed of the current HSPA network. The AT&T Shockwave, an HSPA+ USB modem, is capable of running on the network, but AT&T does not yet offer any HSPA+ capable handsets. Donovan also noted that, while the usage of its data network has slowed a bit, data traffic on the network has grown more than 3,000 percent over the last 3 years, IDG reported.source: IDG, via: Fierce Wireless
