T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network versus Sprints 4G network

After the launch of the HTC Evo 4G for Sprint the guys at phonescoop.com decided to test out Sprints 4G network against T-Mobiles HSPA+ network. The test were done in Philadelphia were both T-Mobile HSPA+ network & Sprints 4G network were available. Below is a chart showing the upload speeds, download speeds & latency of the two networks. According the article locations A-E was done in downtown Philadelphia & location F was in the Northeast of Philadelphia.

They also compared T-Mobile’s current 3G network with T-Mobile HSPA+ network using T-Mobiles webConnect Rocket USB stick. While using HSPA+ speeds where only 15% faster than T-Mobile current 3G network HSPA 7.2. T-Mobiles HSPA+ network was also tested against Sprints 3G & Verizon’s 3G networks. Which according to the chart below T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network is considerably faster than Sprint’s 3G & Verizon’s 3G networks. But only slightly faster than Sprint 4G (WiMax) network. Now keep in mind that these are real world test and not done by a marketing group. PcMag has also compared cellular networks from all 4 of the cell companies in various US regions. So tell me what do you think of the results of T-Mobiles HSPA+ network compared to other cell providers?

    To be taken seriously, it might be good to know when to use "then" and when to use "than". But at least you were consistent in your misuse.
