Re: T-mobile to deploy LTE,refarm HSPA(+) to main PCS band and attacks Verizon

Not inferior in the least. PCWorld recently gave T-mobile the crown for fastest 3G. On the 4G side it won 3rd place but wasn't much behind AT&T & VZ LTE networks. Both were far superior to sprint 3G and 4G. Looks like T-mobile is set to have LTE here in Chicago before sprint, I know USCC already seems to.

i saw that article. one of the worst reads i have ever had the displeasure of reading. pcmag is starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel.

tmobile seems to want to have it both ways. they call their hspa+ 4g, but then throw it in to comparisons against other carriers 3g.

from the article... "T-Mobile's HSPA+ 21 service won in the 3G bracket of our study, and the company's high-end HSPA+ 42 service competed reasonably well with other providers' 4G service."

some one quote this so "big pink" aka eric sees it.

That's great when the tests are done for areas that actually get more than 2g T-Mobile coverage! Unfortunately myself and friends just 5 miles or less outside Tulsa ,OK only get 2g on T-Mobile.

Guy, sprint posted a 1.1 million customer gain this quarter.
710,000 the quarter before. The only reason they are in the hole is because of the multi billion dollar payment to apple, (which is actually going to pay off in the long run) and huge network upgrades.

Tmobile just got a 4 billion dollar payout from att. What is their excuse? You would think managing a network with a footprint the size of a halfdollar would be a little easier than the nighmare of mixed frequency and techs(wimax, cdma, iden, 1x advanced, lte) that sprint is dealing with.

Sprint has my understanding. Plus, I would rather support an american (and my home town) company rather than a german conglomerate.
