Samsung Galaxy S II Works on AT&T HSPA+

That’s right! The version of the Galaxy S II that is now shipping across Europe happens top work on AT&T’s HSPA+ network. Even though you’d be hard pressed to find their supposed 4G network. We must have found it in Washington D.C. because our benchmark speeds clocked in at nearly 6mbps down while over cellular data. When you’re over HSPA+, you get an “H+” indicator. Otherwise, you’ll get an “H” for HSDPA and “3G” for UMTS. It’s very likely that you’ll be able to get a Galaxy S II on AT&T for a lower subsidized press in the future, but if you can’t wait, you can buy one for a bit over $700 right now.
