T-Mobile's Expanding, Super-Fast 4G Mobile Broadband Network

As of August, 2011, T-Mobile has upgraded its traditional 3G network to HSPA+ 4G in 190 major metropolitan areas across the U.S.--covering 200 million people across the country--with plans to continue rolling out this network upgrade throughout 2011. With typical download speeds that are on par with or faster than competing 4G technologies, T-Mobile's HSPA+ network provides fast data speeds--up to 3 times faster than AT&T and Verizon's standard 3G networks--while allowing simultaneous voice and data capabilities for the ultimate wireless voice and data experience. You'll enjoy faster Web browsing, uninterrupted video streaming, and quicker app downloads.

T-Mobile's 4G mobile broadband network (powered by HSPA+) provides a theoretical capability of up to 21 Mbps peak download speeds, with average download speeds typically in the 5 to 8 Mbps range.

In areas not currently served by T-Mobile's 4G network, this mobile broadband hotspot will connect to the 3G network.

Knowing that I would be somewhere with no Internet access for a couple of weeks, I researched several "MiFi" devices. Because they were all fairly similar, my choice was based on T-Mobile's 'pay-as-you-go' option.

The 4G Hotspot was a bit more expensive than other products, but I liked the idea of no contract, and being able to buy a gig of data-time for 30 bucks just for the times that I wanted or needed to use it.

My main objective was to be able to send/receive email and text from my iPod Touch and laptop. I understood that with only one gig, I would not be streaming movies from Netflix or watching YouTube videos. For the two weeks that I used it, primarily for email, I used half a gig of data.

Even though I bought the HotSpot from Amazon, when it arrived, I walked to the T-Mobile store in my neighborhood to have it activated. I did, subsequently, have problems setting up the password (and I never was able to change the SSID name), but I called the tech line and they were very helpful in solving my password problem.

The first time I went to T-Mobile's site to check how much data I had used, there was a glitch and it said I had used it all. When I checked the next day, it was working and I was able to see my correct data usage. In general, after getting used to using it, with a bit of trial and error, it turned out to be an amazing product. Almost every place I used it, I received 4G service. It was particularly helpful when I was out and about with my iPod Touch.

It's true, as others have mentioned, that sometimes it kind of "locks," but I found turning it off and then turning it on again (a kind of reboot) fixed that problem.

I was going on trip to Philly from NYC. The device had steady connection all the way down the NJ Turnpike. Facebook/Google Maps/Amazon pages were opening good. Battery life is about 3.5 hours and it does give some heat, but not scorching. I could keep it in shirt pocket. I always turned it off when not in use, so I didn't encounter the sleep problems people faced.

I lent the device to a friend who used it with her Kindle fire and she loved the speeds.


Had problems activating it. I followed the directions but when it got to keying in required numbers (sim and imei) I was missing one in the package. I had to call customer service which was a hassle because I was disconnected twice and oh hold for a while. I would recomend going to a T mobile store to activate. However, setting up the wifi was easy.

The data pricing is lousy. $10 for 100 MBs/$30 for 2 GBs/$50 for 3GBs. It expires 30 days after use. I am just going to use it on trips.

Bottom line: good device for web browsing on the go. Pricy data and inconvenient activation.

I loved the idea of a "no-contract, pay as you go solution for mobile broadband". The device generally delivers on this vague concept. Unfortunately, T-Mobile has planted several poo-filled landmines of frustration in your path. They will tear through the arterial wall of your patience with crap-shrapnel. You will not get a purple heart.

The activation process was a bloated rhino carcass of too much time on the phone with an ex-KGB agent named Yuri. I forgot much of the details. But he had to give me a t-mobile phone number that was based on my area code, even though I wasn't setting up a t-mobile phone, just a broadband device. It was a bit like a fever dream. But the device was, eventually, activated.

Then you need to make a MyT-Mobile account so you can self-manage. I like that. Unfortunately, they won't email your password to you if you forget it. Like EVERY OTHER WEBSITE IN THE HISTORY OF THE INTERNET does. It must be texted to your T-Mobile phone. Oh, but what if you don't have a t-mobile phone? You've got to login to the hotspot like you would a router and check your messages there. A fairly simple solution, however, this was all lost on the customer service rep who told me NAY, he needed to "reset my account" and to check back in 72 hours. 72 HOURS. In an age when we zap people out of existence in a matter of minutes from unmanned spy drones on the other side of the world. Anyway, he was not the first T-Mobile CS rep who was full of it.

All of this can be chalked up to a very poorly engineered customer experience and incompetent customer service, neither of which are all that rare with tech-related things.

The real kicker with T-Mobile is a little thing called WEBGUARD that comes pre-installed on their Mobile Broadband devices.

I am savvy enough to root my own Android phone, so I am probably more competent than 75% of the customers who will buy this device, but I have failed completely so far, as I took two hours to figure out how to read a required text message that doesn't display on the device (eventually I found that accessing it on my iPad wasn't possible, but that I could read it on an Android device). I've spent more than an hour on the phone trying to deal with the horrid customer service on different issues, and am now stymied because I can see the field where I should enter the required temporary password that came in the above text message, but I am somehow unable to type anything in that field, despite trying on an iPad and two different Android devices from different manufacturers. The customer service phone number given in the manual does NOT connect you to the right people, and after slogging through an automated voice recognition system, you are connected to an operator who will connect you to the 4G phone service people, who will then tell you that they do not do hotspots, and send you to another person, who will then transfer you to yet another person, and eventually I find myself on hold long enough that I hang up and start over. Before each transfer, the CSRs (who very obviously do not have English as their first language) read a lengthy script telling you that they are not the ones to solve your problem and another department does it, but they will transfer you to another department who will immediately solve my problem because my problem is so important to them, and T-Mobile is committed....blah, blah.Read more ›
