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.

T-Mobile has shown 20mb speed over there 3g network. Pretty fast. 4g and wimax is great but who has it? Yeah almost nobody.

I had 4g in Cleveland all weekend and we don't have it here yet.

I went to Tmobile yesterday to give the g2 a whirl. I was extremely impressed with hspa+! I did a speedtest with my evo on 4g (full signal) and the g2 on hspa. The g2 download speeds doubled the evos'! G2- 8mbps, EVO- 4mbps. Now I love my evo, but daaaaamn! In Orlando.

Does HSPA+ hog battery like 4G does?

Yah, meanwhile 3G still sucks for me...it has 6 months after they rolled it out. That first 6 month period was great...then it went to complete crap. Data stalls as far as the eye can see even with full bars and solid coverage. Off to Sprint. Where even camping in St Croix state park I was getting 3G. They are EVERYWHERE.

Newbie question. When a carrier updates to hspa+ do the phones firmware need to be updated to support? I have a Nexus on AT&T and they are also updating in my area (Dallas) but I am assuming my phone will not benefit from it without an update of some kind, am I correct?

Holy Effin Shiznit! Myrtle Beach made the cut! Finally some technological love to the deep South!! T-Mobile Your awesome in my eyes right now.

That's nice, but I don't even have 3G where I live. Can we work on that first?
