AT&T’s struggles to stay up last year are well-documented. CNN recently ran a piece about how AT&T hopes to avoid a similar fate this year. But actually, “struggles” is way too kind of a word.
When 15,000 people are trying to use 3G in downtown Austin things get “a little” dicey. My co-worker at SXSW said he heard that AT&T would step it up this year. So far he’s sending tweets, but I don’t know if he’s on their network or not.
This topic is so hot that it’s trending on Twitter, at least until they crash Austin’s network or Twitter.
