Mini Editorial: T-Mobile, Stop Attacking The iPhone On Slow Web Speeds?

Has T-Mobile’s next marketing salvo against the iPhone already begun? With both a tweet under their belt as well a captured image(s) of an advertisement running on IntoMobile, T-Mobile is attacking the slow internet speeds of the iPhone.

T-Mobile Discontinues The Sidekick 4G, I Hope We See A Follow-Up Soon

We’re sad to report that the day has finally come for T-Mobile to retire the Sidekick 4G, the very first Android Sidekick cross-over to hit T-Mobile shelves.

T-Mobile Emphasizes Service Over Speed While Waiting For LTE?

We’ve already seen and heard T-Mobile’s plans for 2012, a reinvigorated company with a “Challenger Strategy” ready to take on the world.

(Updated)T-Mobile Confirms LTE Rollout Top On Agenda Over HSPA+ 84, IMS Is The Future

  Update: There appears to be some confusion about the language in this article regarding the 1900MHz refarming. There is nothing that has changed since last week, 1900MHz will still be re-farmed for HSPA+ coverage and unlocked iPhone’s will still work when that re-farm is complete in your area. LTE is going to be deployed on the 1700 band for T-Mobile.  In a confirmation of intel we received late last week, T-Mobile … [read full article]

Which Carrier Has The Nations Largest FourGee Network?

AT&T has launched a new battle in the “4G” marketing wars with their very own claim that they have the nations largest 4G network. AT&T’s argument works to combine their new LTE presence with their HSPA+ network to support the size of their 4G network. AT&T’s marketing efforts began this Sunday and it’s in contrast to both Verizon and T-Mobile also arguing they have the nations largest 4G networks. It’s a little laughable … [read full article]
