T-Mobile self-promotes its HSPA+  42Mbps network in a video
T-Mobile has claimed to be the nation's largest 4G network even before its HSPA+ pipeline was the beneficiary of a change in the definition of 4G made by the ITU. Now, the company has been spending money not only building out its 4G network, but also making it faster, increasing the download speed to a rate as high as 42Mbps as we reported. In comparison, the fastest devices on AT&T, like the Samsung Infuse 4G, can hit download speeds as high as 21Mbps.

A video made by the nation's fourth largest carrier explains how T-Mobile has increased its spectrum, expanded radio capacity and added more connections to the internet all in an effort to make its network more reliable. It all sounds good as far as T-Mobile customers are concerned. Of course, if the AT&T deal to purchase T-Mobile closes, the latter will eventually benefit from AT&T's LTE network. But right now, T-Mobile 4G users have to be happy with how the carrier is spending money on its network.

I think its great and all that T-Mobile is doing this. But I will be switching carriers soon I have T-Mobile a g2x and live in los Angeles, don't get me wrong T-Mobiles hspa+ network is extremely fast. But dam does reception suck inside buildings! My friend on her at&t infuse 4G always has service inside buildings, underground parking lots and elevators while I have no service. Atts data network is crap I admit its slow but I noticed reception on at&t is much better. And I know some people will probably get mad at me and be all like well u can use wifi inside buildings but if u live in La like me most buildings that have wifi are locked and it suckz cuz with at&t and Verizon u don't need wifi inside buildings cuz they actually get service.
