Cincinnati Bell today announced the launch of its HSPA+ 4G network. Cincinnati Bell said that 4G service is now available in its home market of Cincinnati, and customers can roam onto the networks of its partners for 4G service when not in Cincinnati. Cincinnati Bell claims to offer service with 10Mbps average download speeds, which is twice as fast as what Cincinnati Bell says Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile can offer. In connection with the HSPA+ network launch, Cincinnati Bell announced that the new Huawei Ascend X 4G can make use of the network. The Ascend X 4G is a Android smartphone with a 4.1-inch display, 1GHz SnapDragon processor, 5 megapixel camera 720p video recording, HDMI out, and Android 2.2 Froyo. The Huawei Ascend X 4G costs $99.99 with a contract or $350 at full retail price.

What kind of HSPA+ network are they running. 21 Mbps? 42 Mbps? Wont matter. There are no 42 Mbps cellular devices currently released. Even with T-mobile having a 42 Mbps HSPA+ network, as you can see, their average down is 3.7Mbps with max at 15.23Mbps. There is no way that they will deliver 10 Mbps CONSISTENTLY with a HSPA+ network unless Several powerful phones are released that support HSPA+ 42.2 (as I type this post, zero exist). So, I call Shenanigans on Cinci bell, that not only will they not be able to deliver 10Mbps consistently, but they dont even h...
They have USB modems that access their network. That is probably why they know their average throughput. Not a lie. Also, they have a very small throughput.
