T-Mobile 3G to be launched in 27 markets on October 1

T-Mobile 3G to be launched in 27 markets on October 1
After T-Mobile USA launched its 3G network in New York City, it announced that more major markets across the county will be added in “the coming months”. However, there have been rumors that the October 1 is the date. TmoNews now posted another “confirmation” for this, a photo of a poster with the same information, taped “on the wall outside a meeting”. We hope this will really be the date on which 27 additional markets (see a list below) will get the AWS 3G service by T-Mobile.

As it is based on the 1700 MHz UMTS, which is used nowhere else, you’ll need a decent T-Mobile U.S. phone to take advantage of it, so let’s hope the carrier will release some. For now, there is information on the Sony Ericsson TM506, and rumors and/or speculations about an Android powered smartphone, and yet unknown 5-megapixel Samsung.

Here is a list of the 27 markets that should get covered by T-Mobile 3G on October 1:

  • New York City
  • Austin
  • NJ and Long Island
  • Las Vagas
  • Minneapolis
  • Miami
  • Dallas
  • Chicago
  • Houston
  • Philadelphia
  • Denver
  • Detroit
  • Orlando
  • Kansas city
  • Atlanta
  • Los Angeles
  • New England
  • Portland
  • Sacramento
  • San Diego
  • Seattle
  • Washington DC
  • San Francisco
  • Birmingham
  • Memphis
  • Tampa
  • Phoenix
