    What's your source? I couldn't confirm this. In fact in this article from 2011
    T-Mobile Launches First HSPA+ 42 Modem | News & Opinion | PCMag.com

    "In a demonstration back in January, T-Mobile showed download speeds of 30Mbps and said to expect upload speeds of 5-8Mbps with its first HSPA+ 42 modem."

    And Denver is on the HSPA+ 42 list. I'm about 30 miles SW of Denver so that's probably why I get my measley 9Mbps download

    Go down to data then speed and you will see that it and other Android Phones I've used on T-mobile only support HSUPA up to 5.76mbps 42 is only the maximum theoretical download speed.

    Well I don't know about the limit speed but here's a screenshot I just took
    But as I said, sometimes I get up to 20Mbps which is as fast as my cable internet company. Amazing isn't it?

    Also says it only supports HSUPA 5.76mbps. This makes sense since all of the GSM phones I've had that support this same HSUPA speed got the same upload speeds from the same towers.

    HSPA+ provides an evolution of High Speed Packet Access and provides data rates up to 168 Megabits per second (Mbit/s) to the mobile device (downlink) and 22 Mbit/s from the mobile device (uplink). Source: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolved_HSPA

    I'm no expert but based on this and the fact that T-Mobile said upload speed of 5-8 Mbps could be possible in the 2011 article I posted, I have to conclude that HSPA+ is not limited to HSUPA for upload.

    i think this plan rocks
    this will definitely start a price war between different carriers and one can believe that the customer will gain
    but i have one reservation on these plans
    it might led to bad customer service

    My guess about LTE is that Tmobile will give it to prepaid. I mean they just stated that they are shifting away from subsidized phones, etc. They are focusing on more prepaid market. Or perhaps they will give it to only those that are on a 2 year contract with a BYOD sort of approach. Who knows really, we'll just have to wait and see what they do.
    I wouldn't worry about their LTE. It's in maybe two cities now and if they build it out like they did their 3G and 4G then it's only going to be available in select large metro areas.
