T-Mobile finally has finished upgrading its 3G network to HSPA 7.2 Mbps, now is planing to launch 4G services in some markets. The “very fast mobile web” is probably its new HSPA+ service that T-Mobile has been talking and testing in Philadelphia. T-Mobile also said that it plans to be the first U.S. carrier to deploy HSPA+ across its network by mid 2010.
Once fully enabled, HSPA+ will offer up to 21Mbps downloads.
The pilot markets for the HSPA+ webConnect Rocket include:
- Dallas, TX
- Miami, FL
- Los Angeles, CA
- Chicago, IL
- and maybe Philadelphia, PA (current test market for HSPA+)
