T-Mobile USA today announced its HSPA+ plans for 2011. The company will launch 25 new devices this year with HSPA+, including smartphones with HSPA+ 21 Mbps in the first half, and HSPA+ 42 Mbps smartphones in the second half of 2011. The company also announced plans to carry the new Dell Streak 7, a 7-inch Android 2.2 tablet with a 7-inch screen and HSPA+ 21 Mbps. T-Mobile's HSPA+ "4G" network currently reaches 200 million people in 100 metro areas. The upgraded 42 Mbps network has already launched in Las Vegas and will reach 140 million people in 25 metro areas by mid-2011. T-Mobile's testing shows that HSPA+ 42 Mbps delivers real-world average data speeds equal to Verizon's LTE network. Real-world upload speeds with the new network are expected to be 5-8 Mbps.

Anybody in Las Vegas?

Anybody in Las Vegas that can give a speedtest result for this HSPA+ 42mb/s network?
No, because nobody has an HSPA+42 capable phone. I do know some of the fastest G2 speed tests I have seen are from Vegas, with users getting a steady 7Mbps and peaks higher than that.
...
I'll try to provide a speed test when the appropriate handsets are available.

IrishCarBomb sounds like he can provide us with the technical part of whatever questions we may have.

That's easy

That's easy to do when you don't have the subscribers to bog down the network. Like them to get those speeds with the same load as VZW or AT&T.

True. That's why I'm happy they're not getting the iPhone....

No, actually T-Mobile's network is fully loaded. It's the same network as their 3G network, which has plenty of people on it. These are just upgrades to that network.

Verizon's LTE network is the completely empty one right now.
Lets wait until anyone actually gets those speeds at all and then decide if its easy.
The big question is.what kind of speeds should a VZW customer get once the get millions of people on the LTE network?
