AT&T upgrading with HSUPA next month

AT&T is set to announce that it has upgraded its mobile network with HSUPA, which will let its subscribers send photos and video from their phones to the Internet about six times faster than current speeds. The carrier plans to upgrade its networks in October and November. AT&T said that the upgrade to AT&T's high-speed network would increase upload speeds to between 500 and 800 Kbps, from its current speed of about 120 kbps. The growing popularity of blogging and social networking is driving the need for more upstream bandwidth, according to the carrier.
