Today MetroPCS announced that seven markets will receive EV-DO-based 3G. MetroPCS won the 3G spectrum in 2006's AWS auction. Three existing markets, Detroit, Dallas and Los Angeles, will see their service upgraded to EV-DO from 1xRTT. MetroPCS is also launching four brand new markets with 3G. They are Boston, Las Vegas, New York and Philadelphia. The EV-DO 3G network will allow MetroPCS to offer more advanced data services, including unified communications and video mail. MetroPCS did not provide a timeframe for the 3G roll-out.

Who cares?

Who cares about MetroPCS? For the quality of service and phones they might as well be called MetroPOS. I am sticking to the majors such as Verizon and/or AT&T because they work where I am and where I go and I don't have to roam.
thats kinda what i was getting at. Smile i have at&t since im an agent , but verizon is just as good

wow, 3G huh?

cricket/leap wireless should jump on the band wagon.

If they roll out 3G, they may become a viable option to ATT or VZW in these areas.

Rock that 3G
yeah but whats the use of 3g without a useful device to take advantage of it; referring to the metropcs lineup of handsets...

T-Mobile sows, all other carriers reap

all AWS holders should give credit to T-Mobile to expedite the cleanup of AWS
without T-Mobile effort, T3 is paperweight, and AWS is just a joke
