Question ATT Reducing EDGE Bandwidth... Again?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know if ATT is still continuing to reduce the bandwidth for EDGE users? Their service has SIGNIFICANTLY gotten worse here in Phoenix over the past two months. So bad that send a single mms now takes 2-3 min, something that used to be 10-15 seconds.

If anybody knows anything, please share.

What part of Phoenix? I am in the west valley (Peoria/Glendale border) and have NO issues with 2G or 3G... rock solid signals, can send/receive sms/mms with no delay... I just don't see any issues in my area...

Probably due more to bandwidth crowding than an actual reduction by AT&T. Too many users, no extra capacity. As for AT&T reducing bandwidth, I thought that was an ugly rumor that never really took place. The iPhone alone was blamed for AT&T's capacity woes in many locations.

Call AT&T and complain. Whether or not they've done anything, they're not going undo it or do something else unless enough customers complain.

I seriously doubt they're reducing bandwidth. Overcrowding is more likely.

In any case, you need to contact them. Don't assume that they monitor BlackberryForums.com.
