T-Mobile To Announce Imminent iPhone Arrival Next Week? | | TmoNewsTmoNews

Well, here’s a story we didn’t see coming, especially not on the heels of the last T-Mobile’s COO comments regarding the iPhone last week. According to Merrill Lynch analyst Scott Craig, “speculation is heightening” that Deutsche Telekom will announce the imminent arrival of the iPhone for its company’s US unit during next week’s analyst day meetings. The meetings, scheduled for December 6th and 7th would be an unusual place for such an announcement given that Apple likes to be involved with high-profile launches. However, the iPhone’s launch on smaller, regional players has also been without the usual Apple fanfare so there is some precedence for the opposite to be true.

The arrival of the iPhone on T-Mobile would give Apple access to 98% of the nations post-paid wireless subscribers with an additional 33 million potential customers.

We’ve seen plenty of analyst statements pop up speculating on the iPhone’s arrival on T-Mobile, but few analyst comments have been so specific with a time and date. It’ll be interesting to see how this one plays out.

Yep, and that's exactly why I'm ditching Sprint in ~ 6 months when my contract expires. The data speed are ####ing pathetic on my 4S. I pay $90 a month and my speed test today was a whopping 0.09Mbps down / 0.01Mbps up/ 875 Ping!!

WTF Sprint!

T-Mobile used to have millions more customers than they have now. Point is, there is a ####load of excess capacity. They'll be alright, for a while anyway.

No they won't. A lot of people are probably staying off of T-Mobile because they do not carry the Iphone. Also Iphone users use up a lot of bandwidth. I do not know why their users use the internet so much, but they do.

I highly doubt the rumor is true though. Unless they are talking about using an unlocked phone on T-Mobile. Apple would have to support T-Mobile's 1700mhz band. T-Mobile does not have 1900mhz up everywhere.

.......


T-Mobile has been refarming their network to use 1900mhz for 3G since the failed AT&T merger; this means they can leverage the added spectrum they share with AT&T to increase coverage which would also allow iPhones to support faster speeds by default. The refarming is almost done:

1700mhz will be used for LTE and since the reverse merger with MetroPCS should go through, that's even more spectrum for both



In many cases T-Mobile has enough free PCS spectrum to replicate its current dual-carrier HSPA+ configuration in its old 2G bands.” That means download speeds should increase with supported devices in select markets.




Deploying 3G/HSPA+ to the 1900 Mhz PCS band means that unlocked GSM devices from other sources, such as iPhones and European Android phones, will be able to work at full capacity on the TM network in areas that have been "re-farmed". This is a big deal for TM as it means they can offer everything except a subsidy for customers who want to use the iPhone on their network. Potentially it could mean many AT&T customers jumping to TM to take advantage of prices that will be $50 or more below what they are currently paying for the same level of service. This transition is to be completed over the final quarter of 2012. Once the AWS (1700/2100) spectrum is cleared out, they will be able to start deploying LTE. According a press release back in February: "Over the next two years, this represents approximately $1.4 billion in incremental network investment. T-Mobile expects to reach broad deployment of LTE, with service in the vast majority of the top 50 markets and 20 MHz service in 75 percent of the top 25 markets."
T-Mobile has HSPA+ [DC-HSDPA] up to 42 Mbit/s and I think they may still double that to 84Mbit/s if still needed.. they also will support 2x 2x5mhz UMTS carriers to achieve double the capacity (and throughput) of a single HSPA+ carrier [like AT&T does]

Great news for TMobile and Apple if true. Apple sees Samsung creeping up on them so now theyre working with TMobile to get that iPhone out.

I never understood the "iPhone slows down networks". Is it because a lot of people jump on the iPhone. Or the iPhone itself just uses more data than other smart phones?

Idt the users access more data. i just believe it is cause more people jump on the IPhone. I promise you as soon as the 1st Iphone came to sprint, the network's been VERY slow
