T-Mobile shows it means business, slipping into the myTouch announcement that it plans to have HSPA+ coverage in over 100 markets and covering 200 million people before the end of the year. While T-Mobile calls the network 4G, or 4G-like, quite a few Sprint subscribers (and even a Sprint executive or two) would beg to differ. Call it whatever you like, just get it here, please!
Direct from T-Mobile:
With its latest expansion, T-Mobile’s HSPA+ footprint now includes Biloxi and Gulfport, Miss.; Denver, Colo.; Huntsville, Ala.; Knoxville, Tenn.; Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Norfolk, Va.; Omaha, Neb.; Phoenix and Tucson, Ariz.; Salt Lake City, Utah; San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland and Sacramento, Calif.; and West Palm Beach, Fla. T-Mobile expects to reach 100 major metropolitan areas and 200 million people in 2010.
Quite the bold statement. And if it happens as planned, a bold move as well.
