Looks like I'm the only one with enough class to posty name. I wasn't bitching just stating what AT&T told me yesterday. And I've been with AT&T since they have been here from suncom to the buyout from cingulair to the AT&T buy out. My bill has been on auto draft since day 1 and have tier one credit and own a large business and have had two other businesses. I put my name up because I was polite just stating what AT&T told me And I get talked to like a child. I will not lower myself to their standards but if they want to have a real discussion here or face to face I would be glad to set it up. Thanks Scott Davis

OK, I've read this bunch of posts and all I can say is "Come on people is it really worth all the bickering?"
Once and for all I will clairify what is happening with ATT and 3G.
Bidding to get the underground lines in were completed in August. The dates for all work to be completed and tested is September 30. Testing is already being done in locations that the lines have been placed. If everything runs smoothly the plan is to have 3G up and running no later than October 15th.
There are no plans for 4G in the Jonesboro area at this time. And for those of you that know anything about 4G, the coverage is very small. It's mostly used in larger cities where the strain of thousands of users all on the network at the same time. The odds of getting 4G in Jonesboro from any carrier anytime soon is very unlikely.
Here is a link to explain the differences between all the "G" coverages. As you will see, ATT is installing what is refered to as 3.5G.

I hope this helps explain things a little better for everyone.

AT&T will have 3G service for the Jonesboro area late October early November. Its not as simple as flipping a switch to turn it on, the work is in progress and you will have it soon. As far as 4G, no we don't have it, but the other Carrier in town will soon.

Tell me this doesn't sound like "the other carrier"...LOL

I'm SURE if this person was with ATT they sure as hell wouldn't be saying that someone else will be having 4G "in town soon".

There are NO PLANS for any other carrier to have 4G in the Jonesboro or NEA area any time soon. There is not enough population to support the monumental cost to upgrade to 4G. And besides, the current "cell phone population" in Jonesboro cannot reach the capacity of the current 3G and 3.5G systems, so why would anyone in their right mind spend the millions to upgrade something that is currently (and just so you know, the current capacity is only at 38% of total capacity for Verizon) serving the current system just fine.

As Guest Too stated earlier, the system is almost ready to go live. As soon as the final cables are set and everything is tested ATT will go live with 3G in the Jonesboro area. So relax everyone and it will all be fine soon.

The curious thing to me is why is there already a pocket of 3g service at mountain home of all places? And another one at Poplar Bluff. Surely the population density of the Jonesboro statistical area has warranted this serve at least on a time frame that made those other two locations eligible. So what's the deal? I'm glad we may finally getting 3g service, but to me the question really is why did it take so long.

if that is your real name!!! anyone can make up a name on a forum such as topix!! And yes you can say you can prove it by going to your so called business.

imo, Most likely the name you gave is not yours and if anyone visits the business you claim is yours, they would be embarrassed to find you lied. And if you found out that someone did stop by, you would be laugh your tail off at the fool who believed something you said on topix.

I too believe they might be going straight to 4g in this area. Why spend money for 3g then upgrade again to 4g???
I would also be surprised if they get whatever before the end of the year.
Cause a bunch of people with 3g phone that dont have 4g will be pissed

According to AT & T Rep at Rocking Chair/Hwy 412 in Paragould 3g by end of the year. And when I asked specifically about 4g, NO!
There is some Cell Phone Tower work definitely being done. A large vertical crane was adding equipment today near Brookland.
