T-Mobile FINALLY Takes On Verizon AND AT&T With Carly

So what’s the fun in having a great device running a slow network? Well, there is no fun at all according to this new T-Mobile advertisement taking on both Verizon and AT&T. I can’t say how happy I am that T-Mobile is extending the fight beyond AT&T and going after the real competition, Verizon. You won’t find this ad on tv for another week, so feel free to rematch it here a few times.

    lmfao some of you guys must not have seen a pretty girl from the looks of the comments haha

    but i wish tmo would try a different approach…these commercials are getting a bit tired and dated…

    Give Carly a new theme….and a new dress(although i would so wear that dress if i had it)

    With the Droid Does commercials, they are all very different from one another….

    The funniest thing is that Tmobile is taking a shot at the Verizon and the damn Iphone hasnt even launched on the network yet and tmobile is claiming slow speeds!
    How does tmobile justify a baseless attack like that?
    Sales and Marketing 101 is you dont bash your competition.
    Tmobile has taken huge steps forward in the past couple of months with the 4g network and the better phones but man they just act like little kids sometimes.

    Out of all the carriers, T-Mobile probably lies the most. Hey T-Mobile, why does my Nexus One only shows EDGE on it? Suck it, T-Mobile. Nationwide, ya right. As soon as my contract is done, I’m switching carriers.

    If T-Mobile had the iPhone, I’m sure they’ll have a whole lot more complaints about dropped calls and laggy internet than AT&T.

    Dear everybody who is complaining about not having 4G:

    Tmobile does not, and has not ever, claim to have nationwide 4G. They are simply saying that out of the carriers on 4G they have the largest. That is a true fact. I’m sorry if this comes off as a jerk, but you have nothing to complain about. Sure you may not have 3G but this is not the forum to complain about it.

    • I Just Get EDGE (2G)

      This is not a forum to correct people. This is not a forum to make comments. This is not a forum.

      I didn’t know you owned this site.

    • I Only Get EDGE Too.

      You know what’s fact? This. Straight from the commercial you failed to watch.

      “Does one of them have NATIONWIDE 4G like me?”

        I think you are confusing nationwide 4G coverage, as in the ENTIRE country has 4G, and 4G coverage across the nation.

        True they have cities across the nation, which is nationwide, that are 4G but they have never claimed to have FULL nationwide coverage. That is what I am referring to. Coverage across the entire nation. People are complaining that they do not have 3G service so Tmobile should cover the US in 3G first then move on to 4G.

        Again this is not the forum for that. Why are you complaining about 3G in a 4G related post? Can we throw some Galaxy S Froyo updates complaints in there too? Or does anyone want to talk about their Behold II while we are at it…

          You’re original statement is still wrong and that was the point of his post. Now you seem to be changing your statement (because you were original wrong). You’re not qualified to say what this comment section is for. So you’re were original wrong on both your statements.

          Come on dude…what does that sentence mean?

          And how was it wrong? Has T-mobile ever claimed to have had FULL coverage nationwide? No. Plain and simple.

          And it’s just plain logic man. Why on earth would you complain about not having 3G in a 4G related topic? Seriously. You don’t go into Macdonalds and complain about your Whopper. Talk about 3G in another topic and stop complaining.

          You’re statement “Tmobile does not, and has not ever, claim to have nationwide 4G.”
          From the commercial “Does one of them have nationwide 4G like me?”
          From reading that, you were obviously wrong.

          The commercial was talking about network speed and not specifically 4G. So it was about any “G” actually. T-Mobile talked about their supposed 4G speeds while implying AT&T and Verizon either has no 4G and/or they’re speeds are slow (be it 2G, 3G or 4G).

          Your analogy doesn’t really apply either. This site is about T-Mobile. This article is about T-Mobile, AT&T, Verzion, network speeds, iPhone, myTouch4G, coverage and pretty much anything about cellular networks. Your analogy is like me going to T-Mobile and complaining about how my Samsung Fascinate sucks. Yes, I shouldn’t do that but I CAN talk about how T-Mobile’s network sucks on a T-Mobile article touting how their network is good.

      Actually, that’s not a fact. AT&T has updated practically their entire HSPA network to HSPA+, which is what T-Mobile advertises. The only difference is that T-Mobile has HSPA+ devices and AT&T Doesn’t. AT&T has like twice the 3g/HSPA+ coverage of T-Mobile. Once AT&T starts getting their HSPA+ device, I wonder what kind of commercials T-Mobile will make. There’s a reason they only talk about the iPhone in their Ads.

      To be quite frank, AT&T should have gotten at least one HSPA+ handset last year to shut T-Mobile up.

      • TMOTECH

        Having HSPA turned on is fine and dandy but their network only supports up to 7.2 and TMO supports 21+. This is not just a device issue it is an infrastructure issue. ATT has no Ethernet back-haul to support 21+ and they have not turned on the feature in their network. I I was talking to an ATT field tech and he was in the process of installing an additional T-1 at his site. He said it will be a year before they get what we at t-mobile have and that is 50 to 100 Mbps Fiber Optic Ethernet back haul to every cell site in the HSPA+ footprint. ATT would need 60 T-1 at every site to match that. They will be playing catch up for a long time. By the time they have what we have we will be at 42 and moving on to 84 and so on. Even when they launch LTE we will still be running faster than them. ATT is the hare and we are the turtle that caught them taking a nap as we walked on by. Catch us if you can….

          It’s always gratifying to know that someone recognizes the work involved in “simply updating” to 4g speeds. Maybe you just flip a switch and a wave with a higher frequency starts shooting out of the towers, increasing our speeds? Sadly, not. We have to update real physical infrastructure every single time something new like this comes out. That fiber-optic cable he is referring to sells for millions and millions of dollars a reel. I’m OK at this point with not having wireless speeds that are comparable to the speeds put out by land-lines. I’m 25 years old, and I remember connecting to the internet for the first time when I was seven. The fact that we are where we are in that short amount of time gives me a little more patience in waiting for faster speeds.

  • Trill

    This is pointless but its simple do allow me to translate in one large sum

    PROS

    T-Mobile

    Largest 4G footprint

    Better consistent speeds in HSPA supported areas

    Network is future proof because of the changes they made in 2010 so increasing bandwidth will be easier

    CONS

    The frequency at which there 3G network runs as poor in building penetration (although no carrier map promises coverage its all estimated outdoors)

    There coverage isn’t the best depending where you are like up north and in rural areas

    Some areas are still not on 3g (if your in a rural area or somewhere that is a small town and away from city limits then can’t complain about a specific carrier since they all have places like this so you can switch and let it be that)

    HSPA or HSPA+ is just an advace version of 3g but capable of much higher speeds then anyone realize so the whole 4g thing means nothing what matters us speed and how consistent it is.

    Even if you don’t have the latest phone you need to realize you don’t need that high of a speed for anything on the phone so 4mbps and up is more than enough for anything so stop being ridiculous. You will still benefit from many ways if you live in the supported area such as a consistent speed and lower latency plus the network will sustain even with a large amount of users.

    I could go on about the other carriers if anyone cares
