T-Mobile's Galaxy S 4G challenges the iPhone to a $1000 wireless speed battle
posted by Nick T. / Apr 28, 2011, 9:45 AM
T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S 4G seems to have the upper hand in this battle since in theory, with its 21 Mbps HSPA+ connectivity, it can easily outrun AT&T and Verizon iPhones alike, which are limited by their 7.2 Mbps 3G radios. That explains, of course, why such a hefty prize is at stake and why T-Mobile is so confident in the capabilities of its wireless network. Nevertheless, it wouldn't cost you anything to give it a try. If you feel that the planets and stars will align in your favor, grab your iPhone and pay a visit to any of these venues:
- Downtown Seattle
- Factoria Village (formerly Loehmann’s Plaza)
- Bellevue Square
- Redmond Town Center
- Aurora Ave. N. & 135th St.
- 45th & Stone Way
- NW 85th St. & 15th Ave. NW
- Lake City Way NE & NE 125th
- Bothell & 208th St.
- Northgate Mall
The speed challenge promo starts tomorrow, April 29, and ends on Sunday, May 1, and if you manage to grab the $1000 by beating T-Mobile's Galaxy S 4G with your iPhone, do not forget to share it with us in the comments!

if only steve jobs would allow HSPA in his phone.. oh wait.. he still wouldnt have a chance as ATT's "4g" is roughly a quarter of tmobiles max of 42. :)

they probably chose locations where their network speeds peak out while AT&T's has a crappy signal soooo..almost everywhere. xD here's what you do though, you take a LTE MiFI and have it connected to your iPhone, easy money.

Yeah good luck with that MiFi stunt since you're iPhone will show it's connected to it through Wifi.

Att and t-mobile are supposedly merging and T-Mobile is having fun f*cking with att. like this, gettting better phones, dissing on the iphone, lowering plan pricing and updating its towers, so when att gets tmobile they have to put up with Expensive phone exchanges, bad iphone reputation(already), deal with grandfathering old tmo plans and turn off hspa towers at 21 or 42 off because they need that spectrum for Lte but its pricy. :) Come on T-Mobile sabotage that pathetic company be4 it eats you. :D
