T-Mobile Posts Promo Video For HSPA+ 42Mbps 4G Network

It’s definitely a very exciting time to be a T-Mobile customer as they both ramp up their 4G network with speeds that double their current offerings all while they continue their romance with AT&T. I kid I kid. T-Mobile has put together a short promotional video highlight just a few of the many reasons why T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 42Mbps network is awesome. Increased spectrum, expanded radio capacity and more connections to the internet all improve the reliability of the network. Who can complain about that? Watch the video!

    The video would’ve been much better if he had a stronger accent, was a little more animated, and he threw in the phrase “I cannot change the laws of physics” or “She’s givin’ it all shes got, capt’n”

    are there even any 42mpbs devices? I havent seen any review of this new 42mpbs network. What are real world specs like?

    • http://www.fiftyonemarketing.com Deacon

      you won’t see any reviews batman because there are no phones on TMO’s network that can even support it right now.  sure you have ONE device but how many of us are out there shopping for a phone and a device to use the phone with?  not many.  most of us want our PHONES to do all the network is supposedly being built to allow us to do.

      anyway, hopefully at some point this year we’ll have phones that we can test this new network stuff out.

        The 42+ is not really intended for handsets. it is intended for data sticks, Which we have 3 of, and hot spots, of which we have 2, and tablets of which we have 1 that does 42 and one that does 21. the problem is that we are upgrading the network faster than they can build devices that are capable. Samsung 4G phones currently do 21 and I have been told that the Hercules will do 42 but what is the point. Most people are lucky to be getting these speeds on their cable at  home and that is a hard wire coax cable. The biggest benefit to the  network being capable of 42 an soon to be 84 is that all of the phones that can do 14.4 and up go faster every time we upgrade. see if you can get faster than 5 Mbps on any other network other  than Verizon LTE and I will buy you a cookie.

          1st. Which tablet goes 42 and which goes 21?
          2nd.  My laptop, tablet, and my phone pretty much do all the same media stuff so please explain to me why 42Mbps is intended not for phones?

          That is malarkey. This rollout is a joke. In Orlando about a month ago I could finally get 5D on my G2. Peak only. VZW does 13D all day long. In most locations. With TMO it is hit and miss.
          To be fair, I am in Tampa today and pulled down 5 on one occasional which is a record. So they are fiddling with their netork, My guess is that they migrate this to ATTs spectrum after the buyout so they can run HSPA and LTE in parallel. The OEMs will be forced to offer multi band phones.

          Thats why the iphone5 will rock on all frequencies and why David will not buy what he pimps. It breaks my heart but Apple will rule the world!

          Yeah, check out Phonearena’s specs on the upcoming Hercules. It’s shooting for 42mbps. Wow.

        • http://www.fiftyonemarketing.com Deacon

          thanks TMOTECH … but that’s even more weird to advertise something where clearly people assume is meant for phones because let’s face it … when you say TMO, ATT, Sprint etc .. people aren’t thinking of data sticks …they’re thinking of phones.

          so when all this talk about network speeds gets promoted people are assuming this is meant for phones and not data sticks or tablets.

          still, if it makes things better for the likes of myTouch 4G’s and such then i’m all for it.  doesn’t matter much here in Dallas though because the performance here leaves much to be desired.

          and i’ve heard the Hercules will indeed support the higher network speeds…hopefully more phones will do just that.

          anyway, as many are saying … when the ATT deal goes through how much of this will even matter in the end when we have to suffer with ATT :)

          I really like the concept of mobile networks becoming the de facto standard for internet access. I already tether my phone to both my laptop and on occasion, my desktop PC. Ping times are getting much better albeit not PERFECT, but nothing is. If I can stream HD video over the connection, then it’s good enough. The day I see a wireless router with a USB port to plug in a data stick, sufficiently fast speeds, and NO data caps will be pure bliss.

        If there is one device, then there can be a review of the network. Many many people actually use datasticks for work. The only device capable is the rocket 3.0, and I cant find any review of the 42mbps network with it. Makes me thing that tmobile is actively seeking out people to use their network. If it was THAT great, they would give a datastickto engadget and pcworld and have them test it.

      Pretty soon, we’ll be paying $50 for 5 MB of data and 1 Gbps download speeds. I can see the commercials now: “Download speeds so fast, your bank accounts will empty before you can blink twice. Only $25 for each additional MB.”

      I’m pretty sure the cap is at 5gb…

    Thank you T-Mobile! Your advertising is getting better and better! Keep up the hype on your network and let’s hope you can start gaining customers. Who knows, maybe T-Mobile will start making money, AT&T will fail in this acquisition, and DT will see that T-Mo has a viable future to keep it. Hey, I can dream, can’t I?

    Still doesn’t change the fact that data speeds in the greater L.A. region aren’t that fast. You need to have an antenna/cell tower up your arse to get anything higher than 3 Mbps.

    My T-Mobile speeds are 10 – 12MB down during peak hours, my upload speeds are 3MB. Those are very impressive for HSPA+ during peak hours. I also have the Thunderbolt with Verizon and my 4G speeds are between 12 – 16 MB down and the upload speeds are slower then T-Mobile. When you figure the battery use that LTE sucks up compared to HSPA+, I would rather be with a solid HSPA+ Network, too bad T-Mobile is slipping away when they have put so much in their Network. The only reason I jumped with Verizon was due to the Unlimited data plan. I wanted to get on it before it was too late. If T-Mobile made a decision to stay I would drop my Verizon plan in a heart beat. I will stay with T-Mobile until this buy out or whatever it’s called has worked it’s way out. Stay T-Mobile Stay.

    Can’t wait to see phones capable of 42mbps HSPA+, should be at least averaging around 7mbps in real use which is great!

    I have problems with T-Mobile doing the following with their 3G network:

    Not deploying enough fiber backhaul to support 21Mbps max throughput on all sectors

    Installing 3G panels on 2 or 1 sector on a 3 sector cell site

    Reducing 3G coverage (turning down the power) to mitigate low capacity/backhaul, leaving people that aren’t close to the cell site or indoors on 2G/GSM/EDGE

    Still EDGE only cell sites and cell sectors in LAS VEGAS!!!!!!!!!!
    ^ They are finally upgrading places like Anthem to 3G but it’s too slow at this point)

      I agree, I could care less about all this 4G high speed crap.  Let me make reliable phone calls first.  More than 3 dropped important phone calls this week alone.  Major areas of no coverage along major highways in major cities.  Problems transferring between towers.  Taking over one minute to initiate a simple phone call.  Repeatedly.

      Fix all this, then talk to me about data speeds.

My friend on her at&t infuse 4G always has service inside buildings, underground parking lots and elevators while I have no service. Atts data network is crap I admit its slow but I noticed reception on at&t is much better. And I know some people will probably get mad at me and be all like well u can use wifi inside buildings but if u live in La like me most buildings that have wifi are locked and it suckz cuz with at&t and Verizon u don’t need wifi inside buildings cuz they actually get service.

        The MyTouch 4G is actually a 14mbps device, so 7.5 is pretty ridiculous for that phone.  I have a Galaxy S 4G and my average is only slightly better being about 8-9 mbps on average.  I also live in SLC, UT and luckily we now 42 mbps data, and now we just need the phones :)
