T-Mobile Takes Shot at Verizon Over 4G LTE Network Down Time

Pretty funny of T-Mobile, right?  Take shots at a company who just experienced more than 24 hours of down time on their brand new 4G LTE network.  Hey, I’d do the same too if I were a competing carrier.  The only thing is, T-Mobile doesn’t even have a 4G network.  That’s right, I’m pulling out the “Fake 4G” card, because when it comes to trash talking, you have to at least have something legit behind your stance…and they don’t.  And while Verizon’s outage was one of the most preposterous things I’ve ever seen from a company this large in a long time (and we are still owed an explanation), I’m just going to shake my head at T-Mo and ask that they keep trying.  Or better yet, why don’t you go sell your soul.  Oh, that’s right, you did…to AT&T.

    I just did a speedtest and my T Mobile amaze 4g hit 20 mps. That’s 4g speed considering some cities do over 25-30mps with Tmobiles aging HSPA network. So to Kellex maybe you should do what most writers do before they write their articles, research!

    T-Mobile has no room to talk. I cant eve get constant 3G on my BB 9700, WTF! And I’m in a 3G zone! what up T-Mobile???? Don’t worry, I’ll be going back to VZW once my contract is up. You can be sure of that.

    Verizon’s LTE is NOT “Legitimate 4G” either. Your failure to understand that LTE stands for 3G Long Term Evolution is astounding. T-Mobile’s enhanced 3G network is considered the same 3.75G that LTE is. They both have similar theoretical throughout max and wireless communication standards. The fact that T-Mobile’s network is capped by device limitations, the same as Verizon’s LTE network is, does not make it a “Fake” 4G. Both are fake 4G networks and both carriers should be brought up on false advertising charges.

    I was in San Francisco yesterday.. download speed 34 Mbps.. upload speed about 7 Mbps…

    You might have been active, but your network was still slow and crappy, TMobile.

    That’s so funny the last time I heard that, I laughed so hard I fell off my dinosaur.

  • Dodgesityballer

    When they say “WE” that must have ment T-Mobile & AT&T’s network put together lol! They really have the balls to take shots at a company that WASN’T bought out? I’m sorry merged from there pov.

    Verizon and Sprint really don’t “actually” meet the 4G speed requirements of 100 Mbps.

      The site has expanded to all Android devices, but as you can see from the name, it started as a site for the original Droid. So yes, its to be expected a lot of people on here are Verizon customers, including myself.

        I have nothing against verizon but like these people are getting.all worked up just because T-Mobile made a Joke tht is all these people need to calm down and have a little sense of humor dang, dont you people at least wanna see a little competition because after the merger there won’t be as much of this so called competition.

    • d-roids

      considering that verizon brought to the public the first variation of the modern android phones, it opened up the door for other phone companies to enter the mobile market with the google flag over their heads. btw what do u have against verizon. even if my 4G was down for less than 24 hours i still got better phone service than my buddies who have different carriers. if u dont like what u see theres plenty of other android communities out there. u dont gotta be all up in everybody’s face.

      • Winning

        Yah but lets not forget who started android T-Mobile without the G1 all of the other carriers would’ve never seen the potential of android so just stop alright because I didnt ask if you had good reception or not nor did I ask for your opinion lol it was rhetorical question.

        Umm isn’t that what I just said ?

    • d-roids

      LTE advanced is the only one up for candidacy of earning the title 4G. the only thing that comes close to LTE advanced is the network that verizon has right now and by the time AT&T loads up their LTE network verizon will be miles ahead of AT&T. haha chill out, lolol……… catchin feelings eh? LOL

    This shows me how out of touch some of you are. many people CANT get AT&T, or verizon. I work in a shop that sells for multiple carriers, on average most people have to pay anywhere from $400 to $850 deposit just for service not to mention a phone. those same people usually only have to pay $60 deposit of they actually pass T-mobile credit check or get flexpay. Truth is verizon has for years overcharged their customers and we see not the all that cash was thrown out the window, and all week I have dealt with people wanting to drop verizon do to this outage.

    Uh-oh….Droid-life/Vzw customers are feeling a bit pissy about t-mobile’s tweet

    haha jk jk
    this was a funny tweet and a funny post from Droid-life

    However, I am not to sure who has the best 4g….Be it Sprint, Tmobile, VZ or At&t
    but isn’t it true that Tmobile has the most 4g phones and/or devives out of all the carriers?

    • MOTOX

      Its not true 4g…they have their same old hspa+ network while verizon at least has the begginings of new 4g capable technology out there.

  • Anonymous

    well verizon doesnt either

  • NO2TMOBILE

    THEN PLEASE TELL ME WHY T-MOBILE CUSTOMERS ARE STILL CONVERTING TO VERIZON WIRELESS ?????

    UMMMM…..COULD WE PLEASE ALL STAND UP AND SAY REAL THE 4G NETWORK SERVICE AND OVERALL SIGNAL IS WITH VERIZON WIRELESS…..T-MOBILE IS STILL IN THE STONE-AGE..

    • Cgatno

      In terms of devices, T-Mobile actually has a HUGE advantage over Verizon. Instead of sticking a few hundred more MB of RAM into an old device and sticking a “2″ on the end of it, T-Mobile is releasing new, cutting edge devices. If you can name one phone on Verizon that is better than (one of) T-Mobile’s best, I would be very surprised.

  • Cgatno

    I actually switched to T-Mobile from Verizon because of the unarguably better selection of phones on T-Mobile. (Not to mention cheaper prices.) T-Mobile’s service is actually really good in my area, but I’ll admit Verizon’s “4G” speeds are unmatchable, and their customer service is still top notch.

    Coming from T-Mobile, who was dead last in getting 3G rolled out (or are they still working on that?), I find this pathetically hilarious.

      Sorry but 4G is a data speed not a living thing so it is physically impossible for it to stand up. Just sayin (:
