AT&T has been meeting individually with regional executives to brief them on some upcoming changes to the network. Citing an unnamed source, BGR reports that the company is prepping its network to compensate for unannounced devices, as well as future devices that will use “heavy data.” The report also claims that changes to its current data and tethering plans will come once the network is able to “sufficiently handle the [data] load.” While details have yet to emerge, it has been speculated that Apple’s upcoming tablet device will be able to connect to 3G networks for Internet access when away from Wi-Fi.
