T-Mobile HSPA+ Network Now in 75 Areas

T-Mobile in the US has announced expansion of its 4G speed networks (running on HSPA+). 75 areas now have access to HSPA+ allowing those within and with compatible devices, to download data at higher speeds.

“4G is about performance and today T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network is delivering 4G speeds that match and often beat WiMAX and are readily comparable to what early LTE will deliver. Our 4G network is capable of theoretical speeds up to 21Mbps and we have seen average download speeds approaching 5 Mbps on our myTouch 4G phone in some cities with peak speeds of nearly 12 Mbps. Further, independent reviewers have seen average download speeds on our webConnect Rocket between 5 and 8 Mbps with peak speeds up to 8-10Mbps,” said Neville Ray, chief technology officer, T-Mobile USA. “The footprint of our 4G service is not something that competitors are going to match anytime soon, and starting today, we will begin marketing our network advantage with TV commercials advertising ‘America’s Largest 4G Network’ from T-Mobile.”

As well as expanding the network, T-Mobile also has made available two new devices that can utilize the faster speeds. The new devices are the T-Mobile myTouch 4G and the Dell Inspiron Mini 10 4G netbook. You can pick either of these up starting today.
