With the impending launch of HSPA+ 4G services from both Digicel (May) and Bmobile (September), it’s worth noting which popular devices support HSPA and at what speeds.
Realistically, I don’t see either mobile carrier going beyond 3Mbits/sec in their 4G service at launch which means that pretty much all the devices below are (in theory) going to be able to make full advantage of what is provided.
The chart above highlights a point i was making here about why HSPA is a better “next step” than LTE right now for Trinidad & Tobago. We already have capable devices in the majority of smart-phone users hands. When Digicel and Bmobile flip the on switch, a minority of people will have to purchase new devices – mainly the users still holding on to the ageing Curve 8520′s.
Hope this brief guide is useful to you guys, having used 3G/4G with my phones while on travel, I can assure you it’ll be a whole new experience.
