Is this modem capable of full speed on a 42 Mbps network or is it a 1st generation unit max speed 21 Mbps?

T-Mobile is currently offers the Rocket 3.0, but it's $199 before 2 year contract price of $99.

That device supports Frequency band IV- AWS, as well as 42 Mbps (Dual carrier) on this band.

Assuming your use is only occasional and this device supports a max of 21 Mbps, the device here (Rocket 1.0) should be quite adequate.

Just received the modem. Answered my own question. This unit has a theoretical highest speed of 21 Mbps and will likely perform at 10 - 12 Mbps in "the real world". Still pretty fast for under $50. The Rocket 2.0 is twice as fast but costs more $.

Due to the nature of this product and the way it works, I would have to say that no it does not work with on any XBOX 360. However, check at your local WalMart or here at walmart.com, I think that you can get a travel router that you can use with this product to get online with your XBOX 360. If I remember correctly it should have a USB port on the back of that product that you could then use to connect this to. To check to be sure, I would call T-mobile. Sometimes they have the answers that you are looking for....And sometimes, they don't.
