    AT&T, you got some ‘splainin to do. We should have seen this coming with the initial reports that the carrier was disabling HSUPA support on their 4G Android phones. Though the company touts the enhanced speeds of their 4G network, we are faced with the embarrassing fact that the iPhone 4 and its 3G radio [...]

    Ugghh...AT&T really annoys me. This just makes it even worse. Thing is, if they didn't have such draconian data policies and credit requirements, I would have got a contract with them. Their signal has great building penetration and they now have some excellent Android phones. It's too bad they just keep shooting themselves in the foot.

    Eh, it doesn't matter. They won't be around that much longer. AT&T is only in business from people who don't research. Once that starts happening, they'll be a thing of the past.

    I doubt it. AT&T has brand name power. Everyone from your friends, to your parents and their parents knows AT&T. I do see their wireless customer base shrinking however. It will probably still be higher than Sprint or T-Mobile though.

    Actually at&t has been steadily gaining on Verizon in post-paid subscribers. They are not going away anytime soon. It's more like one of the bottom 2's that's going away, with the rumored Sprint & Tmo merger.
