But not all SIII are I9300. When the model# changes so does the hardware, but it is still called an SIII. So what you need to look at is not model # to find what 3G frequencies it will work with.
S3 user, 01 Mar 2013Please clarify whether there are two versions of S3. one with Hspa and other Hspa+ with enhanc... moreI own the I9300 it supports HSPA and HSPA+
They both use the same radio but the protocols are different (HSDPA capable of downlink speeds of 14Mbit/s also known as 3G vs WCDMA capable of downlink speeds of 168Mbit/s)
HSPA+ uses the band more efficiently so if your service provider uses that protocol they can give you download speeds that are faster than a service provider using the HSPA protocol.
For some providers that don’t have LTE (4G), HSPA is marketed as 3G and the HSPA+ is marketed as (4G) as there claim is LTE is capable of 1gb speed but no provider sells that speed to date. And what is sold is very near to what can be accomplished using HSPA+
For this reason I wanted to know from some one that is paying for LTE what download speed they are getting. As my provider gives me 12mbps and they use the HSPA+ protocol (something that could be accomplished on the HSPA protocol.)
I hope you understand the mess of technology vs marketing
