AT&T's 3G network has been shown to be the fastest in the nation during previous testing, but some customers aren't completely satisfied with the actual coverage of that network.  In response to user complaints, AT&T announced today that they made a slew of network upgrades in the first half of 2010 totaling over $3.5 billion.  These improvements include $1.1 billion spent in California, $275 million spent in New York City, and $200 million spent in Alabama, North Carolina, and Tennessee, as well as substantial investments in several other states.

Regardless of what you think of AT&T's network, it's great to see the carrier making an effort to improve things for its customers.  Let's just hope that these upgrades continue and are spread to the rest of the states in the country.  Tell us, AT&T users, are you noticing improved coverage in your neck of the woods?
