Is H+ is 3G?
H+: The Evolved High Speed Access network was created before the emergence of 4G. This network offers the fastest speeds possible in a 3G network. They are able to mimic the speeds of 4G but are not considered so because they are unable to meet the standards of the ITU or International Telecommunication Union.
What’s H+ mean on my phone?
H+ – HSDPA Plus In many versions of Android the full name, “H+”, is shown, but on later versions of Android this was simplified to just “H”.

What does H mean instead of 3G?
H = either HSDPA (3.5G) or HSPA+ (3.95G), depending on your network provider, 2 Mbps. 3G = UMTS (3G), 384 kbps.
Is H+ better than 3G?
H+ is for HSDPA+, which delivers much higher speeds than normal 3G. Technically it is an upgraded 3G network. so if you have H+ then your network is faster than if you get only 3G. and H+ is used only for data download.
Which is stronger 3G or H+?
3G, or UMTS and is the successor to the GSM network and faster. H and H+ are standing for HSPA and HSPA+. Both use the UMTS network, where H is faster than 3G and H+ is faster than H. 4G stands for LTE and is the fastest.

Is H+ an UMTS?
High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) is an enhanced 3G (third-generation) mobile communications protocol in the High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA) family. It allows networks based on the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) to have higher data speeds and capacity.
Why does my phone say E instead of 4G?
E stands for Edge, aka 2G data service. You could say E = slow. There’s few areas left in the country (maybe none by now) where T-Mobile offers only 2G service. Probably everywhere there’s a T-Mobile signal at least 3G service is available.
