    Hey guys trying out TMobile for the first time. Very impressed when the service shows "H" as far as speeds go. However near my home (4-5 Miles) when it switches to "G" my speeds are at 30-45KBS Down and similar Up.

    Is this just typical shitty TMobile Service? I have almost full signal strength while it shows G as well.....

    Called customer service rep at TMobile whom were totally useless.

    Any chance the OTA will help?

    Thanks for any suggestions,
    -Scoob

    G stands for GPRS which is the lowest speeds in the T-Mobile data chain. I only see GPRS when I'm out in the sticks, & even then it's not all the time. Usually when I'm outside of a populated area I'm still on EDGE.

    In terms of speed, it goes: HSPA+, 3G, EDGE, & GPRS.


    Edited to add: If you consistantly see GPRS, then perhaps T-Mobile isn't the carrier for you. Or, you could just switch to a wifi connection when @ home.

    The worst I ever gotten has been edge. This isn't really a software issue but t-mobile needing more cell towers. quite odd how you still get Gprs.
