AT&T Adding Capacity at SXSW to Deal With iPhone Crush

Dan Frommer:

AT&T tells us it’s adding wireless capacity in downtown Austin to deal with “unprecedented” demand (that’s resulted in service that’s flaky at best). This, of course, was a result of thousands (tens of thousands?) of South by Southwest attendees bringing 3G iPhones into this part of Austin for the first time.

Indeed, last night was the first time all weekend my iPhone could get a reasonable network connection.
