Why your HTC One Google Play Edition has poor connectivity to T-Mobile 4G

0. phoneArena posted on 18 Nov 2013, 23:47

You bought the HTC One Google Play Edition because you wanted an unlocked Google experience model with updates coming directly from Mountain View. What you didn't want, or expect, was trouble connecting to T-Mobile's 4G network. In fact, while you were stuck using an EDGE connection, your friend sitting right next to you with a T-Mobile branded HTC One was rockin' the carrier's 4G LTE network. What is going on?...

This is a poor excuse when you consider that the Google Play edition of Samsung's Galaxy S4 has support for T-Mobile's AWS bands. Or am I missing something?

Another HTC mistake, should have included enough bands for all the carriers it would be used on.

This affects everyone that has a Tmobile phone from the past few years, as none of them have 1900mhz support for HSDPA+. Basically you either had 850, 1900, 2100mhz for Europe and Att, or 850, 1700, 2100 just for TMob. Wasn't until around last year that anyone had all 5 bands (900mhz for a few areas, not sure about 1800mhz for 3G).

What it means is, if you get LTE in your area with tmob, you are SOL and need a new phone.
