AT&T Says their HSPA+ is Larger than T-mobile’s

Posted by at 3:58 pm on November 3, 2010

In a classic case of “mine vs. yours”,   AT&T today took issue with some of T-Mobile’s HSPA+ claims from their lastest AD campaign. AT&T not only noted its HSPA+ network has a peak of 21Mbps  vs. T-Mobile’s  14.4Mbps argued.   They also disagreed with T-Mobile’s insistence that its network was the largest, since AT&T’s HSPA+ was potentially reachable by 180 million users today versus T-Mobile’s 140 million.

T-Mobile plans to expand its reach to 200 million by the end of the year, but AT&T said its own service would reach 250 million Americans in a similar time frame.

T-Mobile’s primary advantage is in phones, as it’s the only carrier in the US with HSPA+ phones that include both the myTouch 4G and the G2. AT&T said it would have HSPA+ phones in the future but hasn’t given a time line.
