Read this re: AT&T upgrading it's 3G from HSPA 3.6 to 7.2. AFAIK, the Bold is only capable of 3.6 so I guess they will need to release a 7.2 capable BB.

AT&T- News Room

"In addition to the planned speed upgrade, AT&T is enhancing its mobile broadband coverage by nearly doubling the wireless spectrum dedicated to 3G in most metropolitan areas to deliver stronger in-building reception and more overall network capacity. Also, AT&T is adding thousands of new cell site backhaul connections to support the higher mobile broadband speeds enabled by HSPA 7.2 and LTE."

I'll believe it when I see it but the comment about them allocating more spectrum to 3G is what I was alluding to above.
