19 more cities to receive faster data speeds from T-Mobile

19 more cities to receive faster data speeds from T-Mobile
The carrier continues to roll out its HSPA+ goodness across the country, and sources say it should be adding 19 cities with the service come July 21st. The cities in question are:

  • Austin, TX
  • Baltimore, MD
  • Birmingham, AL
  • Cincinnati, OH
  • Cleveland, OH
  • Columbus, OH 
  • El Paso, TX
  • Ft. Worth, TX
  • Hawaii, HI
  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Jacksonville, FL
  • Kansas City, MO
  • Louisville, TN
  • Milwaukee, WI
  • Minneapolis, MN
  • Portland, OR
  • San Antonio, TX
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Wichita, KS

If you happen to live in those areas, and own a T-Mobile 3G-enabled device, we bet you are a very happy camper now. HSPA+ may be just an upgrade to the existing 3G infrastructure rather than 4G, what T-Mobile is advertising, but it still achieves up to the respectable 21Mbps download speeds. What the speeds will be in real-life situations, though, is a totally different story.

I live near Atlanta and we have just recently received the HSPA+ network. I have seen speeds of 4.8Mbps down and 1.5Mbps up. Currently quicker than both Verizon and AT&T

To be honest, it's supposed to be faster than WiMax in its current state (once 802.16m I believe, that will change drastically). So, silly as it may be, T-Mobile has the fastest network in the US right now (albeit very scarce).

You know what'd be nice? If T-Mobile expended its 3G upgrades beyond metropolitan areas and into more rural towns (like here in Corning, NY). With their decent phones, lower prices and-in my experience-awesome customer service, they'd probably end up being far more competitive.
