    I read that T-Mobile will soon introduce an hspa+ phone. Will that even make any real world difference? A nexus one never hits its Max over the network why would there be a benefit to a phone that supports 21m when Max download speeds hover below 6m?
    I understand LTE is different technology therefore new equipment will be needed but what changes with hspa +?

    So in hawaii it says that we have hspa live right now but I didn't really believe it. I would get about 1400kbs around town but yesterday my gf just got the new vibrant and we did a side by side speed test. I couldn't believe that she was getting constant 3500-4500kbs speeds while I got 1400-1600 speeds. Anyone know why her phone seems to play well with the signal and mines doesn't?

    You wont notice it on your HSDPA device like the N1.

    I get the same as you 1 sometimes 2-4mbps down and 1.5 up on the norm.

    its 7.2 at the tower.. and then from there due to traffic and whatever have you, you lose speed.

    when the first tmo HSPA+ device is launched (see G1 Blaze) is when you will see the real benefits of this network.

    as a heads up, if you go above 20MPH when moving that your speed will drop to HSDPA level. (so I heard from a tmo tech not too terribly long ago.)

    btw. I live in DC and those are the numbers I am pulling above.

    That is really odd. If the N1 is rated @7.2 then that's what it should max. I don't understand the rating system. It seems, well I know its more for marketing than anything else. However for it to be slower at such relatively low transfer speeds seems like a flaw more than the norm. I've a lot to learn. ?

    I average 4MB down and 1.3 MB up just outside nyc. Is that hspa+? And if so is it supposed to have an H up in the notification bar?

    No, the Nexus one does not support HSPA+, it is HSPA.

    Also, you're not getting MB/s, you're getting Mbps (bits not bytes).
