Today T-Mobile announced that it has upgraded its entire 3G network to HSPA 7.2Mbps (peak speeds). That's an improvement from 3.6Mbps, and should allow for faster wireless downloads. T-Mobile also pointed out that its 3G footprint now covers some 200 million Americans. T-Mobile also said that it plans to be the first U.S. carrier to deploy HSPA+ across its network by mid 2010. T-Mobile currently has an HSPA+ trial under way in Philadelphia. Once fully enabled, HSPA+ will offer up to 21Mbps downloads.

Without a firmware update you are correct assuming the chipset is 7.2 compliant. Not all are. What phone do you have?

Oh now wait, these are American phones... yeah good luck with that.

Goodbye AT&T Advertisements

Well, I guess we won't be able to hear Luke Wilson saying, "AT&T has the nation's fastest 3G network" anymore. Shucks.

Bravo to T-Mo for going from virtually nothing to leapfrogging the rest.
Well, they still have a few months.

The funny thing about advertising is that words like fastest or best actually don't mean as much as faster or better. So long as Tmobile and AT&T are on HSPA 7.2, both can claim to be the "fastest 3G network", e...

Could this be the quiet before the storm for T-Mobile here in the U.S.?

I wonder how nice the iPhone would be with 21mbps HSDPA+???? Very Happy
