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?
