T-Mobile USA today announced a significant expansion of its 1900MHz HSPA+ service. It is available in 14 new markets, including New York City; Newark, N.J.; Boston, Cambridge and Springfield, Mass.; Providence, R.I.; Philadelphia; Detroit and Warren, Mich.; Dallas, Austin, Fort Worth and San Antonio, Texas; and Tampa, Fla. Many of the devices sold by T-Mobile rival AT&T will be able to access fast data in those areas. T-Mobile is in the process of refarming its 1900MHz spectrum from GSM/EDGE to GSM/HSPA+ so it can use its 1700MHz spectrum for its forthcoming LTE 4G network.

I just discovered that my old xperia x10 mini doesn't do 1900 3g. Sad

However, airportal.de shows a couple dozen markers for Austin within the past month.
I have been detecting 3G areas on my iPhone 5 and ipad 3 here and there in Dallas for the past two or three months. Now, I guess, it's official. 5 to 10 Mbps down, less than 1 Mbps up when I have three or more bars. The coverage is still spotty.
