Since Android is now on Sprint and Verizon and both networks have expansive 3G networks, the rather adolescent 3G coverage on T-Mobile becomes even more magnified. Luckily, like they have been doing, T-Mobile is tirelessly working on rolling out and expanding their 3G network to cover more Magenta users. Here's the latest:

  • Albany, GA
  • Amarillo, TX
  • Abilene, TX

Considering we've never even heard of these cities (apologies to said cities residents), it looks like the T-Mobile 3G rollout is reaching more obscure areas of the country (relatively speaking, of course). We'd love to know which cities are still without T-Mobile 3G, so please let us know in the comments!

T-Mobile 3G Keeps Rolling Out

46 Comments

aye, i stay in Albany, Ga since 2002 and been waitin for 3G since then, lol. its about damn time though, but im with Verizon now. T-Mobile your a lil bit too late.

I agree, we need it in Boise. This is a huge Tmobile city. C'mon folks! I'm getting an Android phone next week, thankfully it is WiFi compatible.

3G is defiantly needed for t-mobile in Boise.. Google maps on my android phone compared to my friends Droid is pathetic. His maps load 5x faster :(

am still patiently awaiting here in Boise, ID for TMobile 3G - other carriers are looking more and more attractive

Castle Rock Colorado. It's in between Denver and Colorado Springs. You would think they would have 3G working between the two biggest cities in Colorado.

Pretty much the entire state of Michigan is without 3G coverage from T-Mobile. With the exception being downtown Detroit and I do mean Downtown.

All of KY is still with out 3G, we barley even have Edge in most places. Rumors are floating that Louisville and Lexington KY are both getting 3G

I talked to a tmobile rep yestesday and he said they just finish installing a tower on 21st and Lewis so we would have 3g this week

Springfield, Ohio is without 3G coverage. It's right in between Dayton and Columbus, which are two of the biggest cities in Ohio!

It is all false news...No 3G in Amarillo yet.
I called T-Mobile customer service and they told me they don't have any plans in the near future

The 17 largest US cities with no TMO 3G are:

Louisville, KY
Tulsa, OK
Cincinnati, OH
Lexington, KY
Anchorage, AK
Lincoln, NE
Fort Wayne, IN
Madison, WI
Boise, ID
Grand Rapids, MI
Mobile, AL
Little Rock, AR
Fayetteville, NC
Jackson, MS
Tallahassee, FL
Springfield, MO
Sioux Falls, SD

I live n Perryton, TX same town, drove 2 hours 2 Amarillo to see my brother on Thanksgiving and T-mobile has 3G, nice. So Amarillo, TX is 3G on Thanksgiving Day :)

3g was on breifly today in louisville i wonder if it own its way i have a t mobile touch pro 2 i saw my E go to g for about twenty minuts before swicthing back

That "G" is not 3G. It stands for GRPS.
Thats the data service that is even slower than edge, when edge signal is not available. If you get a 3G signal it will actually say "3G". So yeah. Sorry to bring the bad news but that G unfortunately has nothing to do with 3G.

Cincinnati/Northern KY has no 3G. T-Mobile should be extremely embarrassed by this looking at some of the cities that do have coverage. If it weren't for the ETF I would be gone.

So I randomly look at my phone and it magically has 3G. I push a button or two and then it disappears. I lay my phone back down how it was, look at it a few seconds later and I have 3G again..looks like Cincinnati might FINALLY HAVE IT!

All you people are completely confused. 4G if for network cards and not cell phones. Sprint did announce that a few phones will be available sometime in 2010 though, but only in a few select cities.

Its pretty pathetic, I seen a commercial for Sprint yesterday offering 4G! I live in Lexington, Ky and Tmobile doesn't even have 3G here yet! T-Mobile is going to continue losing customers if they don't get up to date and I know I will be switching when my contract is up!

I was told the same thing about 3g being in Tallahassee by the rep. I had the phone ordered before it came out and got it the 1st day about a year and a half ago and he said it would be up by the time I got the phone. I know 3g is expensive but this is terrible and illegal for their reps to be saying things like this!!!

I was told when I bought my g1 that a new 3G tower was being built in Tallahassee, FL. I think he was just telling me that to get me to stay with t-mobile because I have seen nothing about it actually being built. I have always had problems with phone & data coverage here & was considering switching. Pretty shady if you ask me.

boise needs 3g coverage i switched from verizon to T-Mobile but the really shitty thing is that when im at work (tmobile) i get 3g coverage lol
so wheres the love t mobile i cant live at work
