T-mobile mentions 3G plans for 2006


T-mobile's senior vice president of Engineering Operations, Neville Ray revealed in an interview with BetaNews, that the company intends to launch 3G services by the end of the next year or “definitely” in 2007. Although Ray admitted that they are currently undertaking 3G testing in some markets, he refused to mention any specific locations as well as which 3G technology would be adopted by T-mobile in the U. S. It is widely speculated, however, that the company will choose UMTS network. T-mobile also intends to complete the launch of GSM 850 in 2006, which will give its subscribers much more coverage, mainly throughout the central part of the United States. The carrier is now working on making its phone lineup GSM 850 compatible and will soon begin to move current customers to these phones through its upgrade program.
