Got T-Mobile? Help us test their new HSPA 7.2

If you have visited this site over the last couple of months, you might have noticed we were really hyping T-Mobile’s planned upgrade to HSPA 7.2. T-Mobile told us the rollout would be complete in 2009 on all their 3G nodes, but we have no evidence it was ever turned on.

Over the last week I have been guessing the launch was pushed back till January 5, 2010 to coincide with the Nexus One launch. According to Phone Scoop, that is exactly what happened.

T-Mobile has yet to publish an official press release, but look for one later today. Phone Scoop is a reliable site and if they are reporting that HSPA 7.2 is live, they likely had access to an early press release from T-Mobile.

We have reached out to T-Mobile USA to confirm the network status, but you can help us test it in the mean time.

Grab the application Speedtest.net from the Android Market (or scan the QR code above) and share your results. For the sake of keeping everything simplified, please run the test with the default settings (kbps). If you are on another network (Sprint or Verizon), feel free to share your 3G speeds as well.

The key things T-Mobile customers should look for are:

  • Improved latency: Ping times under 200 ms.
  • Faster download speeds: Theoretical peak of 7.2 Mbps, but actual speeds should hopefully be around 2000 kbps +.
  • Improved upload speeds: I believe most current model Android phones max out at 2.1 Mbps for upload speed. Anything over 500 kbps is good.

The following is an example of a speed test I ran. It is not exactly blazing fast, but there is an improvement in ping times and download speeds. I’ve only tested in one area of my city and I intend to run a lot more speed tests as we travel the country this week.

    I’ve definitely seen much improved latency in the past couple of weeks, but no real speed increase. Most of my pings are under 200ms, and most of them avg around 170ms. But the speed, while I’m not complaining, it’s still good.. average around 800kbps down/300kbps up.

    It is noticeably faster…to me. However to the normal person…ehhh….I just don’t know. I’ve never had it spike to over 800 where I live….its always stayed at 600kb on dl speed. Going to reboot and test again from a few different places before I’m convinced.

    Whats’ weird is that I now get 3G inside of a metal shed, which it always dropped to edge by that time because it’s all metal and acts as a Faraday cage of sorts. The fact that I can get nearly 1 mbps down inside of the shed could only mean that the signal is now better, and stronger.

    I’m convinced.

  • Mike V.

    I posted test results a few posts back from Wilmington, DE. I ran test using mobilespeedtest.com and get download speeds on an average of 4500kbps after testing 5 times. Then i used Speedtest App again and still get around 800kbps download speed.
    Whats the deal with that?

  • http://Website Yatima

    I figured out the deal with the slow speeds some are still seeing. The high speed only kicks in when downloading alot of date. So use mobilespeedtest.com and do a test with 2mb or higher. I’m guessing this means the high speed is kept for apps that do alot of streaming(youtube, pandora, etc) and I think thats how it should be. Browsing the web doesnt need that much speed

      Observations / Questions
      1. I don't think this is using a large enough file for testing.
      2. I get different upload results from Xtremelabs Speedtest

      The second (upload test) is faster, so I think it must be an even smaller file than the download file.

    I think speeds will pick up late at night with less traffic, will post again later to compare. I repeated 10 times and averaged. I also give you the min/max/std error values to give you a sense of the variability. Download speeds are extremely variable as you will see, while ping times and upload speeds are quite consistent:

    ping: avg: 145.8 / min: 120 / max: 159 / std err: 3.45
    down: avg: 2536 / min: 1218 / max: 3437 / std err: 208
    up: avg: 871 / min: 848 / max: 892 / std err: 5.51

    • http://Website mapin

      Tried this again at 1:30AM. The off-peak time seems to have made a difference in increasing the download speed and making it more consistent. Just a hunch.

      ping: avg: 134.7 / min: 116 / max: 168 / std err: 5.94
      down: avg: 4104 / min: 3846 / max: 4297 / std err: 42.7
      up: avg: 765 / min: 700 / max: 794 / std err: 8.1

      Difference between 9PM and 1:30AM:
      ping: 11.1 ms faster average for 1:30AM.
      down: 1568kbps faster average for 1:30AM.
      up: 105.7kbps slower average for 1:30AM.

    TMO started running 3G in the Akron area in August – and the coverage was rather spotty. Last month, they lit up more 3G cells (it’s pretty consistently 3G now in Akron and the inner suburbs to Akron).

    When I first got 3G, the upload speed averaged about 200-300 kbps down and 125-150 kbps up. I wonder if TMO turned on HSPA 7.2 when they added the 3G cells last month in the Akron area.

    Now I average about 500-600 kbps down and 300-400 kbps up. The download speeds are pretty consistent between indoor and outdoor locations; the upload speeds go down quite a bit when indoors (sometimes as low as 100-200 kbps).

    Now only if I can get the iheartradio app to work on their reasonably quick 3G network – works in my wifi at home but not over TMO’s HSPA. :~

    Sitting on my couch. I live outside of Spartanburg, SC and ran several tests.

    The Latency was 138ms, download was 0.7Mbps and upload was 0.25 Mbps on the first test with nothing else running.

    Rebooted the Mytouch and tried again after the MT was idle.
    Latency: 228
    Up: 0.11 Mbps
    Down: 0.21 Mbps

    Tried again and got:
    Ping: 210
    Down: .83Mbps
    Up: .08Mbps

    Took 25 readings. Really kinds of sucks when you averaged and removed the Highest and lowest speeds

    Ping: 288
    Down: 0.45 Mbps
    UP: 0.12 Mbps

    I’ll try again tomorrow at work to see if the speeds increase.

    Wait…… I’ll connect to my home router and won’t worry about the speed.

    @john…yep! same old since the speedtest.net app came out. I’m in Manhattan New York @ 116 street. I usually get faster at times square, just never got the chance to test it.

    I believe the speedtest.net app needs a longer download speed test cause near the end my download speed always begin to climb.. i wish they would update it to make you pick how long it should be. Its really not good for speeds over 2mbps though. I connected my wifi and it reach 4mpbs by the end when it was increasing. My regular internet speed at home is 9mbps down and 512kbps up.
