T-Mobile Brings HSPA+ 42Mbps Network to 11 New Cities

T-Mobile has announced that it is bringing its high-speed HSPA+ 42Mbps 4G network to 11 new cities across the United States and that it is expanding its HSPA+ 21Mbps network to 9 other markets. This brings T-Mobile’s 4G coverage to a grand total of 218 markets around the country.

Of course, it still only has a few devices that are capable of taking advantage of its 42Mbps network. Luckily, they are a few of its best devices. T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S II runs on the network as does the HTC Amaze. It also has a USB stick called the Rocket 3.0 should you not want a smartphone.

Now, who’s getting what? Let’s have a look shall we.

    Have to admit I have been impressed with TMOs HSPA+ 42Mbps network in Southern California. Two coworkers have the HTC Amaze and average about 12 Mbps, with occasional bursts around 18Mbps. In comparison another coworker has the Droid Charge on Verizon LTE and gets about 5 Mbps at the same office location with occasional burst to 10Mbps. However, just last evening I was at a Verizon store near our office playing with the new HTC Rezound and it was hitting 18-21Mbps. Another item of interest is the HSPA+ seems to be kinder on the battery than LTE. I give TMO credit for being aggressive in deploying their network. Sure beats lame AT&T and their, “We’ll get there some day, but who knows when” LTE network.
