4G v HSPA+ (Hint: GO T-MOBILE)

Unless you have been living under a rock, there is a pretty good chance that you have heard something about this HTC EVO 4G thing.  It’s kind of a big deal, being Sprint’s first 4G phone and basically being a beast hardware wise.  Is it really that big of a deal though?  The guys over at PhoneScoop wanted to put the latest networks to the test, and it was a war.  The truth is, T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network is simply better than Sprint’s WiMax 4G offerings, on a download, upload and latency basis.  It should be said, though, that these speeds are still relatively close, and actual results may vary.  On a related side note, T-Mobile’s HSPA 7.2 Mbps network wasn’t much slower than HSPA+ or 21 Mbps.  So it all comes down to this, real world speeds on both of these networks is crazy fast, but T-Mobile has more phones, and a wider and ever expanding area of customers, that can use the network.  So, I will say it again, GO T-MOBILE!!!  Make sure to read the test yourself, it is pretty interesting in a bland, stuff you never really need to know, kind of way.  Leave your thoughts in the comments!
