AT&T boosts Seattle-area 3G coverage with 850 MHz spectrum

This morning announced that they’ve done a “substantial upgrade” of its 3G coverage in the Seattle area, having deployed additional wireless spectrum using the 850 MHz band.

The move should also increase overall network capacity, which AT&T is hoping will support subscriber growth.
