T-Mobile USA today indicated that it no longer plans to deploy HSPA+ 84Mbps network services. Instead, T-Mobile USA will jump from its 42Mbps HSPA+ service straight to LTE. T-Mobile USA's Andrew Sherrard told The Verge that the original HSPA+ 84Mbps plan would have required T-Mobile to refarm some of its 1900MHz spectrum. Since it needs to take this same step to deploy LTE, it makes sense for T-Mobile to skip deploying HSPA+ 84Mbps.

smart move!

why waste money on hspa84 when you know you going to LTE in the future.
I wonder if Tmo's LTE will be faster than ATTs LTE because Tmo has HSPA 42 to fall back on, whereas lazy-ass ATT only has HSPA 21 to fall back on.
