T-Mobile Houston 3G network gets boost in Pearland
Posted on Jun 23, 2010 by Paul White
Today my Comcast
Cable Modem Service went out again. So I plugged my HTC HD2
phone into my desktop via the USB cable, loaded up Internet Sharing and started tethering. In the past I would get terrible speeds ( mostly due to not being able to get a strong enough 3G signal. If I was at home, I was on Edge ( 14KB - 20KB ) transfers at best. If I was near the towers the speeds were better, but they still couldn't touch AT&T's HSDPA. So today when I plugged my phone into workstation I wasn't expecting anything special. But instead I got a big surprise. 3.53 Mb/s
downstream, 1.44 Mb/s
Upstream via tethering with my HD2 on the Tmobile 3G network
Still not H icon indicator on my phone, but these speeds blow away anything I would get from AT&T. Very fast. I almost can't tell the difference between my cable modem connection and tether on the T-Mobile Network. Plus my 3G signal has jumped from 1 bar to 4 bars. Thank You T-Mobile. If you want awesome coverage in Houston with no dropped calls, and fast 3G Uncapped data ( unlike those other carriers who call their plans unlimited, but then impliment a 5GB cap ), Get with T-Mobile!
For those who want to know where in town I am at. I am located in Pearland, TX 77584, Close to the interception of 518 ( broadway ) and 35 ( Telephone ). T-Mobile just gave everyone in the area some love.
