AT&T Says They Can Handle New iPad Traffic

AT&T seems to be saying the right things and not speculating too much in this piece.

It also covers this issue of whether T-Mobile could offer service, concluding that it can't. I'm still unconvinced. I'll keep you posted.


  1. T-Mobile uses the AWS frequencies for their 3G network, which is incompatible with most of the rest of the world's GSM networks. Since the iPad doesn't support the AWS uplink frequency (1700) it simply won't work on T-Mobiles 3G network unless Apple changes the hardware. It could run on T-Mobile's slower EDGE network which uses the 850 MHz frequency that is supported by the iPad.

  2. I've heard this, but how hard would it be to change the hardware?
