So you thought you had a lot of markets, you carriers you? Check out a bit of the ol' expansion at the hands of T-Mobile! Here we've got a list of 56 markets that T-Mobile will be expanding their HSPA+ 42 network into. That's T-Mobile's bigtime 4G network, incase you did not know, and with the sweetness already hitting 170 million Americans in 152 markets, one ocean to the other. This exceeds what T-Mobile is saying was their initial goal of reaching 150 million Americans with increased 4G speeds by the middle of this year and, keeping in mind that they've already reached 200 million Americans in more than 190 markets, we're gonna go ahead and say they're doing pretty well.
T-Mobile lets us know that this push for the speediest 4Gs includes the upcoming launch of a couple of 4G-capable devices that, wouldn't you know it, we just happen to have here in the office. First there's the myTouch 4G Slide which we've posted a hands-on of yesterday - it's slick and sweet and takes photos galore. Then there's the Exhibit 4G from Samsung that we've already got a lovely review of up for you right this moment!
Now lets get to listing the network this carrier will be reaching with their fastest connection speeds ever:
Allentown, Pa.; Anderson, S.C.; Asheville, N.C.; Ann Arbor, Mich.; Baltimore, Md.; Barnstable, Mass.; Bellingham, Wash.; Bloomington, Ind.; Boise, Idaho; Boston, Mass.; Bremerton, Wash.; Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk, Conn.; Brunswick, Ga.; Carson City, Nev.; Charlotte, N.C.; Charlottesville, Va.; Chico, Calif.; Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; Eugene, Ore.; Flagstaff, Ariz.; Flint, Mich.; Greensboro, N.C.; Greenville, S.C.; Harrisburg, Pa.; Hartford, Conn.; Indianapolis, Ind.; Knoxville, Tenn.; Lafayette, Ind.; Lancaster, Pa.; Laredo, Texas; Lynchburg, Va.; Manchester, N.H.; Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn.; New Haven, Conn.; Ogden, Utah; Providence; R.I.; Provo, Utah; Raleigh-Cary, N.C.; Redding, Calif.; Reno-Sparks, Nev.; Richmond, Va.; Roanoke, Va.; Rockford, Ill.; Salem, Ore.; Scranton-Wilkes-Barre, Pa.; Spartanburg, S.C.; State College, Pa.; Tallahassee, Fla.; Terre Haute, Ind.; Tucson, Ariz.; Washington, D.C.; Wichita Falls, Texas; Winchester, Va.; Winston-Salem, N.C.; Worcester, Mass.; and York, Pa.
Do I see Minneapolis in there? Why yes, yes I do! Joyous day! Do you see your state and/or city in there and wonder why they'd say such a thing when you've already got T-Mobile 4G in your area? Note that this isn't just regular HSPA+, it's HSPA+ 42, a network with downloads approaching 10 Mbps, with peak speeds of 27 Mbps. Get that stick and get cruzin!
