About 5 cell sites in rural Eastern North Carolina along US 64 are now showing as 3G on the coverage map. I don't remember this being the case a week or two ago. There is no enhanced backhaul yet, but AT&T's trend around here is to upgrade the radio side of the network to HSPA+, then add enhanced backhaul within a few months. This is a very rural area and the only carriers with native service are US Cellular, Verizon, and AT&T.
So it appears that AT&T is still expanding their 3G/4G HSPA+ network.

Bars are not a true indication of signal strength or quality.
