• T-Mobile's Next-Gen HSPA will offer 650Mbps in 2013

    Press Release:

    T-Mobile USA, Nokia Siemens Networks drive evolution of HSPA

    Mobile leaders promote standardization of Long Term HSPA Evolution to unleash speeds of more than 650 Mbps

    Operators would be able to achieve peak data rates of more than 650 megabits per second (Mbps), thanks to an HSPA standard being driven by T-Mobile USA and Nokia Siemens Networks. Long Term HSPA Evolution would improve mobile broadband with speeds matching those promised by LTE Advanced. T-Mobile USA and Nokia Siemens Networks are driving the technology’s standardization aiming to make it available for commercial deployment by 2013.

    The proposed key features of Long Term HSPA Evolution were accepted during the plenary meeting of 3GPP RAN held on 7-10 December, 2010*.

    “We strongly believe in continued HSPA evolution in parallel to the further development of LTE and LTE Advanced,” said Neville Ray, chief technology officer, T-Mobile USA. ‘’Long Term HSPA Evolution will allow us to enhance our 4G mobile broadband network beyond its current and planned near term capabilities, and provide room for considerable growth and speed enhancements. As customer demand for wireless data increases, we are well positioned to compete based on the speed, breadth and evolution path of our mobile broadband service.”

      We'll see. TDMA had an EDGE standard -- unimplemented. GSM EDGE had proposed advancements taking it up past 1mbps -- unimplemented. There were proposals for CDMA 1X to bump up speeds considerably (both EVDV, and a second propossal -- I don't recall it's name because it didn't go anywhere) -- unimplemented. EVDO had a proposed upgrade path going to EVDO Rev B, then Rev C, and UMB, getting LTE-like speeds -- unimplemented (well, I guess a few networks are putting in EVDO Rev B..)

      If Nokia and T-Mo do this it's fine with me, I just have my serious doubts based on historical precedent that it'll actually come through.

      weird. Why did they not implement them?

    You can keep the SIMs and send the defective phones back without the SIMs. When you need to receive the security code, put the SIM into a BYOP phone to receive the text. TF might pair the SIM to the...

    I plan on combine balances to the main phone line; so after 61 days, the 2 defective phones will not get the security code from TF. I guess the service days and balance will be gone on the 2...
