T-Mobile's 4G Network has Download Speeds that Might Break the Sound Barrier
T-Mobile BlackBerry users should be proud to hear that, T-Mobile's 4G download speeds are faster than ever!!!! ...wait 4G? What's that? Oh Yeah! Thats the network that all these devices work on, except BlackBerry! Maybe RIM should get on this!
Still, this is very cool for T-Mobile customers. The 9900 should be a great phone on the T-Mo network. For AT&T customers this is also good news, seeing how T-Mobiles network and AT&T's network will be merging very soon.
T-Mobile has seen average download speeds approaching 10Mbps with peak speeds of 27Mbps on the T-Mobile Rocket 3.0 laptop stick (the company’s first 42Mbps device). T-Mobile expects more than 150 million American’s to have access to these increased 4G speeds by mid-2011, which is right around the corner.
Currently T-Mobile customers can choose from more than a dozen 4G devices, including:
- 4G Smartphones: the Galaxy S™ 4G, the T-Mobile® myTouch® 4G, the T-Mobile® G2® with Google™, the T-Mobile Sidekick® 4G™, the T-Mobile® G2x®™ with Google™, HTC Sensation™ 4G and the upcoming BlackBerry® Bold™ 9900.
- 4G Tablets: the Dell™ Streak™ 7 and the T-Mobile® G-Slate™ with Google™ by LG.
- 4G Laptop Sticks: the T-Mobile Rocket® 3.0, T-Mobile’s first HSPA+ 42-capable device, the Rocket™ 2.0, T-Mobile’s first HSPA+ 21-capable device, the T-Mobile Jet® 2.0 and the prepaid T-Mobile Rocket 4G.
- 4G Netbook & Mobile Hotspot: the Dell™ Inspiron™ Mini 10 4G netbook and the T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot
T-Mobile’s 4G network (HSPA+ 21) already reaches more than 200 million Americans in 184 markets.
