HSPA+ coverage map

Just like last month, T-Mobile has lit up their HSPA+ network in nine more markets, bringing 4G like speed (21 Mbs) to:

  • Boston
  • Erie, Penn.
  • Fresno, Palm Springs and San Diego, Calif.
  • Miami
  • Richmond, Va.
  • Spokane, Wash.
  • Topeka, Kan.

This brings the count up to 55 markets, and over 100 million people covered by the HSPA+ network.  While the G2 should make full use of HSPA+ network technology, the Cliq, Vibrant, Behold II, and MyTouch 3G Slide also benefit from the higher speeds according to T-Mobile.  See T-Mobile's official statement after the break.

Today, T-Mobile USA, Inc. announced the continued expansion of its super-fast mobile broadband network to 100 million Americans in more than 55 major metropolitan areas. 

T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network – which offers theoretical peak throughput speeds of 21Mbps – is now available in Boston, Mass.; Erie, Penn.; Fresno, Palm Springs and San Diego, Calif.; Miami, Fla.; Richmond, Va.; Spokane, Wash.; and Topeka, Kan. 

“Our new network offers today’s available 4G speeds to more people than any other wireless network in the country and we’re not done yet.  We are now on pace to more than double our HSPA+ footprint – reaching more than 200 million people by this year – with plans to offer 42Mbps theoretical speeds in 2011,” said Neville Ray, chief network officer for T-Mobile USA.

I live about 15 minutes away from one of the newly added cities. Do you think I'll get HSPA+ or am I too far away?

Says Sacramento, CA is coming soon. Can't wait to see how my Vibrant holds up then!

I get around 3mb down in Minneapolis on my vibrant in some areas. That's nothing compared to the speeds I saw in Niagra Falls. I couldn't believe the times I was getting with speedtest while I was there on vacation. Almost thought about moving to St. Catherines it was so fast.

i live about 30 min. from Minneapolis, and i get .8 mbps, but when i went to Minneapolis, i got 5 mbps! its almost here!!

I live in Saint Paul. I've been able to get about 6 mbps down over Wimax with Sprint (4g not official, just testing). It seems TMobile is almost as good. Plus I'd rather be on a gsm carrier.

Sucks that Google, Kansas got it before Chicago. Is Chicago such a huge market its gonna take a while? Well, Boston would be huge too? Im sad. I wonder if this will boost the network in the 'L' subways when we get it...

My boyfriend's N1 gets easily double the throughput that my Evo gets on Sprint 4G. And the biggest difference? He has a 3G signal all over town, whereas my 4G signal is just shy of a massive joke.

In Austin, where Sprint has 4G, and T-Mobile has 3G HSPA+

crxssi says:

There are lots of factors that can affect reception and speed. I think in Sprint's rush to get 4G in as many "markets" as possible as quickly as possible, the actual 4G coverage is spotty to say the least. In Richmond, I had good Sprint 3G EVERYWHERE I tried, but 4G was present in one block, and not a block away, and then back again, etc. If you zoom in on Sprint's 4G coverage map for Richmond, it looks like polkadot hell :)

That said, I am confident it will be "filling in" over time.

I live In pembroke pines florida and i get about 1.5 on a normal day and on a good day with good signal i get 3.0-6.0 its pretty fast i always speed test against AT&T SPRINT and my My touch 3g slide always beats everyone in the interned speed department.

green says:

Awesome. AT&T should take note.

Ok, I'm sure this is an incredibly stupid question. But I live in Wichita but am on Verizon. Will I benefit from this at all? Please keep the smart a$$ answers to a minimum. Thanks!

Google cdma vs. GSM.
You are a cdma user and T-Mobile is a GSM network. They are not compatible

Thanks for the info.
