Liveblog: T-Mobile's CES 2013 press conference

0. phoneArena 08 Jan 2013, 19:29 posted on

We'll wrap the "press conference" part of the day up with T-Mobile's CES 2013 press event. The fourth-largest US carrier promises that this will be an evening of an "amazing 4G experience." Strong words! We'll be honest now - CES 2013 turned out to be a bit light as far mobile device announcements go, so if this truly is going to be an "amazing 4G" evening, we are hoping that the T-Mobile executives on stage will at least take a few phones our of their pockets...

Cool stuff. I hope that LTE roll out happens quickly. That 1900mhz reframing too. T-mobile has so much potential right now.

I love that their LTE will be LTE Advanced capable. That gives them the opportunity to be the carrier with the fastest speeds available. I mean, HSPA+ 42 is already very fast, imagine LTE Advanced. But you're right, it needs to be done quickly. What's the use of being the fastest carrier if you have bad coverage?

I really would be fine with anything above 7-10mbps but what I'm looking for is consistency. T-mobile hasn't really provided that in the past but I'm hoping with this huge network update/expansion/reframing they'll fix whatever problems have existed.

I constantly get between 10-13 mbps down in my area, with peaks of 15 or 16 at times. I've never had a consistency problem, it's just that whenever I go inside my signal drops because HSPA+ uses high frequencies that can't penetrate buildings as well as the lower frequency LTE is usually at.

I figured as much. However I don't get signal in my apartment with Verizon anyway so I guess it can't be any worse. Definitely looking forward to T-mobile rolling out their LTE with LTE Advanced baked in. Great things to come.
