T-Mobile USA today detailed their launch plans for 3G services using the spectrum the carrier won in the most recent FCC auctions. The company will roll out UMTS / HSDPA service beginning mid 2007 in selected markets, and expects to offer nationwide 3G coverage by the end of 2008. CEO Robert Dotson says the company has "already completed 50 percent of the UMTS equipment rollout in New York." Because T-Mobile 3G services will be in a new band (1700 MHz) that no carrier could previously use, they will not be able to use current 3G handsets. However T-Mobile feels that because their 3G service will be limited to a single band, that they will be able to offer inexpensive 3G handsets after launch. Dotson also revealed that T-Mobile will launch UMA Cellular / Wi-Fi services beginning next year.
