New T-Mobile ad shows that Carly can ride her bike and rhyme at the same time
T-Mobile has certainly changed Carly's image over the last year. From the girl next door to Motorcycle Mama, the idea is to turn T-Mobile from a lower-priced alternative to the other major carriers into an edgy company with the latest technology. That is except for its lack of LTE. With Sprint officially turning on its LTE service in a few markets on Sunday, that leaves the nation's fourth largest carrier left to offer the faster 4G network.

Not that T-Mobile can't offer its customers some type of 4G service. The HSPA+ pipeline is the carrier's 4G answer until it starts building out its own LTE network in 2013. And T-Mobile's HSPA+ 42Mbps pipeline is so fast that in a recent test, it actually was faster than Verizon's LTE service in 11 cities. One thing you can say about the other carriers. They don't have their spokesperson zooming along the backroads of the country counting cell towers.

Since the merger between T-Mobile and AT&T fell through, T-Mobile is having to sink money into their infrastructure and create a more reliable network to compete with other carriers, kinda impressive actually.

Vsync and double/triple buffering. That's how they did it ;)

Eventhough T-Mobile coverage is not good as ATT, Sprint and Verizon it is 1000x better than home phone in mobility.

They can keep the Trashy Mobile service. Just left for greener pasters (cell and data service that works consistently). Sure the red death star is more expensive but it just works well. No 4 full bars of 4g and only pulling 300kbps down or dropped calls in my home. I'm now moving to the tune of 25-35mbps down in Houston and loving every minute of it.
