    Hspa+

    Whats the deal with HSPA+ on T-Mobile. Was at the shop upgrading my plan and was told that the network is being upgraded today or tomorrow in my area.

    Tried speedtest.net and got 1.2 down and .4 up. Is that HSPA or HSPA+ speed? Any way to tell what connection one might have?

    It depends on the network and where you are. Telus has a 21 theoretical hsdpa but I never get that.
    Usually 4 to 5 down and 2 up.


    In Japan they have an HSPA+ in the works with 42 as the max. At least that is what I read. Wouldn't that be sweet?

    I believe the Nexus one is configured to get a maxe 7-8megs down, that doesn't reflect what the network can do, but it does reflect our phone wont be outdated in being able to keep up with speed for a while. T-mo is rolling out but will still take some time to get it everywhere
    Nexus One and luvin it

    Well anyway you slice it, the speeds are much better than what I was getting with AT&T 3g. But I haven't used it long, so I need to see what speeds are like in various areas that I go to. So far I'm really happy with the phone and T Mobile. I think it was a good move for me.

    Nice speed from Telus. I'll have to see what my speeds are like in other parts to the city. I'm kind of on the edge of town. But even if I only get regular 1.5 or so down, its a good upgrade from what I've had.

    I am in a suburb of Boston and have not yet had the HSPA+ speeds hit my area. On the coverage map I am in the HSPA+ area but have not yet been turned on. Right now I'm getting on average between 980 kbps - 1475 kbps down and 750 kbps - 900 kbps upload. That is not bad for 3G in the middle of the day during peek usage. Those upload speeds are crazy for peek hours of 3G connection. When they flip the switch for the HSPA+ speeds I will be one very happy customer. The numbers IMO don't tell the entire story. At those numbers my web pages are up and running very, very fast. There is only a couple of seconds before the pages are all lit up. These are not the mobile web pages but the full rendering. The numbers to me are not as important as the speed it takes to get the web page downloaded and running. I have been very happy with T-Mobile's service. Come on T-Mobile flip that damn switch.
    Love the Nexus One on T-Mobile.
