Default Real quick on the H+ Logo.. it doesn't mean you are in 4G

The towers have been updated for hspa+ but even if there is no backhaul you still still get a H+. Doesn't mean you are getting 4G speeds though, it just means that your cell tower has been upgraded for HSPA+ but there is no fiber running to the tower.

So don't fret if your data speeds are at 3G levels. You are probably just getting 3g data

yeah. You don't need to do a thing. But they need to replace the copper with fiber for faster data

I'm using a phone with WiFi for the first time ever. This thing is impossibly fast. Seriously, go get a bbq 9700 and play with it for.an hour just so you can see what a beast this thing is, even without true h+!

"Wifi" and "H+whatever" have nothing to do with each other - they're completely different frequencies. Wifi goes direct to a cable modem nearby, which bypasses the entire phone network and cell towers and is why it's so much faster.

So what does the checkmark under the H+ mean when you're connected to wifi?

The 4G map on the AT&T site was updated. It shows where 4G is available now. You have to scroll over the map: 4G Speed from AT&T - AT&T 4G with HSPA+ and LTE - Wireless from AT&T

I can't believe NYC still doesn't have 4G -___-


PS Make sure you use Internet Explorer, for some reason the map doesn't work on Chrome. Idk about Firefox.
