T-Mobile today announced a large expansion of markets covered by its HSPA+ network. New metropolitan areas benefiting from the upgrade include: Los Angeles; Dallas; Atlanta; Houston; Seattle; Tampa and Orlando, Fla.; Pittsburgh; Charlotte, Greensboro, and Winston-Salem, N.C.; Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Okla.; New Orleans; and Charleston, S.C. The service has also been expanded in Bentonville, Ark.; Anderson, S.C.; and Fayetteville, N.C. T-Mobile expects all of the new markets will be live with HSPA+ by the end of the month, creating a footprint that covers 75 million POPs across the U.S. T-Mobile's HSPA+ service is already live in New York; Philadelphia; Las Vegas; Memphis; Upstate New York; Connecticut; Providence, R.I.; and Washington, D.C. T-Mobile said it is on track to have 100 major markets and 185 million people covered by HSPA+ by the end of 2010. As these markets go live with HSPA+, T-Mobile will make its webConnect Rocket USB Laptop Stick available to customers in those regions. T-Mobile also points out that a dozen of the phones in its lineup are able to take advantage of these new, faster network speeds. Those handsets include HTC myTouch 3G, myTouch 3G Fender Edition, myTouch 3G Slide, G1, HD2, TouchPro2, and Dash; the Samsung Behold II; the Nokia E73; the Motorola CLIQ and CLIQ XT; and the Garminfone.

T-Mobile, WIth the Nation's fastest 3G network

Now that T-Mobile has the nations fastest 3G network, is AT&T going to discontinue the "fastest 3G network" marketing campaign? I know they say they have the fastest 3G network in Tampa on the radio.
Prolly not. Its actually funny cause before t-mobile started upgrading to hspa+ both real world speeds were already faster than at&t. 😉

Its really really really fast!

I'm in Tampa, FL and I'm hitting around 5-7mbps DL and 1.5-1.8mbps up on my MyTouch Slide. Its even faster when you tether with a computer! 🤤 😳 😲 😎

Who's got the fasted wireless internet speeds?

It sure ain't ATT, Sprint, or Verizon. Go T-Mobile, we are proud of you and all 21mbs.

MAN!!! Could Chicago get some HSPA love too soon!!
Chicago has Wimax!
I was just in Schaumberg and my Nuron was on HSPA the entire time.

I know it is on the west-side (Schaumberg, Downers Grove, O'hara)... don't know about the city itself though.

I was using a Nokia N900 btw.

AT&T could learn from T-Mobile. It's called EXPAND your 3G network.

I can see it now, headlines read:
iPhone 4 releases today followed by numerous network outages from AT&T's 3G network due to lack of capacity, iPhone users left in the dark!
