Yesterday Qualcomm announced that there new HSPA+ chipset with download speeds up to 84Mbps, should be making its way to T-mobile phones sometime next year. Although it does not meet ITU’s specifications for 4G (which is a maximum download speed of 100Mbps for mobile devices and a 1Gbps for fixed devices and currently no network supports true 4G) 84Mbps beats every existing technology in the market… even Roadrunner. The next Chipset in the works is 168Mbps, which should put HSPA+ on the actually 4G list.
Although many believe that the “4G” services offered by Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, etc, the truth is that none of their mobile broadband technologies meet the specifications of true 4G. For more information follow the link bellow:Source: tmonews.com, http
