T-Mobile USA’s Challenger Strategy begins with 4G struggle

T-Mobile USA isn't just planning an LTE network, it's "making amazing 4G services affordable" the carrier claims, as part of its "Challenger Strategy" to claw back subscribers from its rivals.

Carrier Three believes it has the answer with the Web Cube, in effect a mobile broadband router that can't go any further than an AC socket. In return, you get convenience, some degree of mobility and - every geek's favorite - blue LED lighting. But is a non-mobile mobile modem niche or nonsense?

The Sony XPERIA S is the second smartphone released by the manufacture, alongside the XPERIA Ion LTE. Though this version doesn't have 4G LTE, it takes advantage of HSPA+ for up to 21MBps speeds.
