T-Mobile’s Definition Of 4G

Ever since T-Mobile officially announced its HSPA+ network as “America’s largest 4G network”, there has been much argument among the carriers over what exactly “4G” is, and thus the “4G wars” began. Receiving criticism from both Sprint and AT&T, Magenta continues to stand by its 4G claims and rightfully so. According to the ITU, not a single carrier in the U.S. currently meets the global standard for an accepted 4G network (yes, that … [read full article]

Sprint Claims To Be Only “True” 4G Network, They Also Have Big Pipes

If Sprint was hoping to steer the conversation back in their direction with this, the latest entrance in the “4G” argument, they should have tried harder.  This video, which offers up a mini-tutorial on how Sprint 4G works as well as some digs at the competition, effectively does neither very well.  All I learned from this video is that Sprint apparently has a larger pipe than everyone else. Claiming that “other carriers might claim to have … [read full article]
