Default 3g h h+

What the heck is the difference on H and H+ and 3G ???? Isn't 3G same-equal as H. I got today on my note the H+ on a specific area. Normally I have 3G or H depends on the area I am. So anyone could explain plz.


Thanks

3G is "normal" 3G, HSPA is enhanced 3G or "3G.5" and HSPA+ is even faster HSPA. I get it with my 3 sim quite a lot, and it's very noticeably faster than the other 2 - I've rarely seen the difference between 3G and H.

That's the way I understand it anyway, I'm sure someone will explain it more technically and shoot me down

Yeah,possibly, like I say I'm no expert on the subject. Saying that, here in the UK I've never seen H+ touted as 4G, probably because proper 4G is still a ways off.

Here in Germany I think T-Mobile is starting to get A 4g network but dunno when and where it starts or if may have started. So QQ 4g

HSPA (3G/H): Theoretical limit of 14Mbps down, 5.76Mbps up

HSPA+ (3.5G/H+): Theoretical limit of 84Mbps down, 22Mbps up, but will support 168Mbps down.

H+ is being rolled out by T-Mobile USA in stages of 21Mbps, 42Mbps, and hopefully the 84, if not phased out by the AT&T merger. I will love the roll-out to complete as I have a $10/mo. unlimited data plan.

Not going to say you're wrong but then what's the difference between 3G & H indicated on f.e. Samsung galaxy s3?

No difference...just depends on how the manufacturer wants to report the network connection for a given phone and given network. More specific information regarding your network is available under "Phone Status" in "Settings".

Wrong. 3G is the 3G standard, H is the 3.5G standard (and is faster). H+ is the 3.9G standard which is faster still.

I'm on Three in Ireland, and it moves between 3G and H+ all the time on my s3.

For a real world example of the difference I ran speedtest when it showed 3G and I got 5.56 Mbps down and 2.3 up.
When it showed H+ I ran it again (same location) and got 7.42 up and 2.33 down

So a decent improvement in download speed
