Today it announced that it would bring the upgraded network to customers in Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, and Miami.

    Is it necessary to upgrade to 3G first, then to 4G? It seems that's what they're doing. Wouldn't it be more economical to cut out the mid-path and go to the desired upgrade?

    AT&T has never been logical, or economical. It's going to take them years to roll out the upgrades everywhere, and right about the time the finish, they'll announce that there's a new network that WILL actually load web pages faster than I can draw them with an etch-a-sketch, and the ipod touch still won't have a camera.
