Randall L. Stephenson spoke at today’s Goldman Sachs Communacopia conference.  He noted among other things that AT&T would open up 7.2Mbs in six major markets by the end of 2009.  The iPhone 3GS will be able to take advantage of this speed while older iPhones will be stuck with 3.6Mbs.  As for cities that are going to get updated?  We know Chicago is wired up and ready to go but who else gets to go 7.2?  Update – as per this week’s press release: Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, and Miami are getting the "7dot2" lovin’

He then goes on to explain why carrier exclusivity drives innovation and is good for the consumer (ROFLOL!).  Have a listen to the MP3 file here.
