Hands-On With T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 21Mbps Network


With T-Mobile promising to roll out HSPA 7.2 by years end, and HSPA+ 21Mbps by the middle of 2010, a few lucky residents of Philly have already been blessed with T-Mobile’s ultra fast 3G network. A lucky individual over at jkontherun was kind enough to share his hands-on experience with T-Mobile’s HSPA+, currently live in the Philadelphia area. Using a T-Mobile webConnect USB stick the individual started out and tested T-Mobile’s current 3G network, which resulted in speeds around 1.11 Mbps download and 0.67 Mbps upload speeds. Then the individual used the same hardware in the HSPA+ test network, and noticed speeds noticeably increased, yielding, 5.58 Mbps download and 1.23 Mbps upload. That’s some blazing fast mobile speeds! The individual also tested the HSPA+ network out on the Nokia N900 which supports T-Mobile USA 3G bands.
