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]

T-Mobile adds another 10 HSPA+ cities


wichita falls lol. Hope rippetoe enjoys that tmo hspa+

Actually I think Rip would be on big red wouldn't he. He's smart like that.

I'm glad to see Tmo continuing their plans in case the deal falls through. I'm sure they'll add HSPA+ in Pennsicola for Phil 3 days before the deal goes through and ATT starts breaking up the network for the spectrum.

They didn't list the N1 as one of their HSPA capable devices ....They are currently adding Tampa and I'm getting it downtown ...
