T-Mobile Rolling Out HSPA 7.2 Before Years End

Earlier in November, reports were coming in of a few cities supposedly getting a taste of T-Mobile HSPA 7.2 speeds. Our friends over at AndroidandMe, reached out to T-Mobile, to confirm whether or not the HSPA 7.2 launch date had been adjusted and received a very good response. To summarize, T-Mobile is sticking to its previous statement, which was to roll out HSPA 7.2Mbps by the end of 2009. T-Mobile also states that they will … [read full article]

LTE in Late 2012?

Now, I can’t speak of how accurate this information is, so please have your salt in hand.  Deep in this 3G America document (page 3 of 3 actually) there is a line saying that T-Mobile USA will be deploying LTE in Q4 of 2012.  While this is a year after AT&T (who are just trying to play catch up with Verizon) I am not worried.  If you remember correctly, T-Mobile is setting up to [read full article]

The 3G Launch Train Continues

Well it’s been a while since we’ve been able to announce 3G launches but we’re happy the dry streak has come to an end. Residents of Albany, GA, Amarillo and Abilene, TX rejoice in all that is 3G goodness. While 3G is all well and good, we know the ultimate desire of T-Mobile customers right now is wherefore art thou HSPA/HSPA?

fido-3g-data

Well somehow this skipped our radar yesterday but apparently T-Mobile laid out “aggressive” plans to deploy 7.2 Mbps HSPA through all 3G spectrum by year’s end.  Even more noteworthy is T-Mobile’s continued discussion regarding an HSPA+ rollout in 2010 that would be a “fairly broad scale” rollout. T-Mobile continued to emphasize 3G coverage will expand to 200 million pops before the end of 2009 with 240 cities currently covered. This contrasts to the AT&T and … [read full article]

PCMAG Goes Hands On With HSPA+

Sascha Segan, PCMag columnist extraordinaire, was fortunate enough this week to be given a behind the scenes look at the recently announced HSPA+ T-Mobile service in Philadelphia. Even a cursory glance at the article will show his favorable impressions of the T-mobile HSPA+ network, stating, “T-Mobile’s new HSPA+ network sends other 3G networks running away in tears.” While the obvious counter-argument is that the other carriers are still fielding the basic run of the mill 3G … [read full article]
