T-Mobile To Launch HSPA+ 42 Mbps Phones This Year
T-Mobile USA today announced its HSPA+ plans for 2011. The company will launch 25 new devices this year with HSPA+, including smartphones with HSPA+ 21 Mbps in the first half, and HSPA+ 42 Mbps smartphones in the second half of 2011. The company also announced plans to carry the new Dell Streak 7, a 7-inch Android 2.2 tablet with a 7-inch screen and HSPA+ 21 Mbps. T-Mobile's HSPA+ "4G" network currently reaches 200 million people in 100 metro areas. The upgraded 42 Mbps network has already launched in Las Vegas and will reach 140 million people in 25 metro areas by mid-2011. T-Mobile's testing shows that HSPA+ 42 Mbps delivers real-world average data speeds equal to Verizon's LTE network. Real-world upload speeds with the new network are expected to be 5-8 Mbps.
Anybody in Las Vegas?
IrishCarBomb sounds like he can provide us with the technical part of whatever questions we may have.
That's easy to do when you don't have the subscribers to bog down the network. Like them to get those speeds with the same load as VZW or AT&T.
True. That's why I'm happy they're not getting the iPhone....
Verizon's LTE network is the completely empty one right now.
