HSPA+: A Definition


T-Mobile myTouch 4G

T-Mobile's myTouch 4G runs on the carrier's HSPA+ network.


HSPA+ is an enhanced version of high-speed 3G wireless networks. Because it is so closely related to 3G and is not a new, built-from-the ground-up technology, HSPA+ has been called a 3.5G network instead of a true 4G network. But HSPA+ networks are capable of delivering 4G speeds, with download speeds between 5 megabits per second and 8 mbps.

AT&T Wireless and T-Mobile both offer HSPA+ service.
