T-Mobile announced this morning that it's bringing 10 more cities into its HSPA+ (aka 4G) circle of trust. They are:
- Ames, Iowa
- Anderson, Ind.
- Battle Creek, Mich.
- Benton Harbor, Mich.
- Jackson, Mich.
- Fort Collins-Loveland, Colo.
- Lawrence, Kan.
- Manhattan, Kan.
- Springfield, Ill.
- Wichita Falls, Texas
T-Mo also reminds us that it'll be flipping the 42Mbps switch on Las Vegas, New York and Orlando later this year. We wouldn't read too much into T-Mobile continuing expansion as if the whole AT&T acquisition thing might not happen. Because it might not happen. And it's better to be bigger than not. Full presser's after the break. [T-Mobile]
