Sprint fuels the fire, instigates fight with T-Mobile but gets the facts wrong

Sprint fuels the fire, instigates fight with T-Mobile but gets the facts wrong
Sprint's corporate communications manager, Stephanie Vinge, sent out a tweet that contained a major fail. In an effort to set the 4G record straight, the Sprint executive tried to compare the number of T-Mobile's 4G phones with the number of Verizon's 4G handsets and the quantity of Sprint's 4G phones.

She correctly writes that Big Red currently has no 4G handsets and that Sprint has a pair (HTC EVO 4G and the Samsung Epic 4G). Where she goes wrong is with her calculations for T-Mobile. She writes that the Nation's fourth largest carrier has no 4G phones because it has no 4G network. As we recently reported, the ITU has changed its mind and now recognizes T-Mobile's HSPA+ network as being a 4G pipeline along with Verizon's LTE network and Sprint's WiMax service.

Before Sprint starts picking a fight with T-Mobile, it might be a good idea for the former to get its information correct before firing the first salvo. According to the ITU, the T-Mobile G2 and the myTouch 4G both are considered 4G devices.
