T-Mobile has provided an update concerning the markets in which it offers UMTS service in its 1900MHz spectrum. T-Mobile told PCMag that 49 markets around the country, including the nation's five largest cities (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, and Philadelphia) now have access to the speedier data service. The number of POPs covered in the 49 markets totals 142 million. T-Mobile has been turning off EDGE service on its 1900MHz spectrum in favor of faster UMTS. It is doing this to align its main 3G network with AT&T's, which uses the same spectrum. This will allow many devices, such as the Apple iPhone, to use either AT&T or T-Mobile's 3G networks. The refarming efforts also open up T-Mobile's 1700MHz AWS spectrum for its forthcoming LTE network.
