We have to admit, AT&T's current "4G" offering - which uses HSPA+ - has left us pretty much cold, with underwhelming speeds in comparison to Verizon's LTE network.

T-Mobile and AT&T 4G for Dell Streak 7 after unlock

Good news if you've got a T-Mobile USA Dell Streak 7 and would rather use it with AT&T. According to StreakSmart, when unlocked the T-Mobile version of the Android tablet actually packs support for not only T-Mo's 4G HSPA+ network, but AT&T's as well.
