T-Mobile is sure pushing into the mobile 4G market. With the 2 devices detailed yesterday: the G-Slate and the Galaxy S 4G, they are going to be an aggressive competitor in the 4G war of 2011. However, we were informed to an overlooked segment of the G-Slate announcement; T-Mobile has also turned on their HSPA+ network in 8 new areas.
T-Mobile’s 4G network, America’s largest 4G network, has expanded into more than 100 major metropolitan areas, reaching more than 200 million people nationwide. Beginning today, T-Mobile’s network is also delivering 4G speeds to Albany, Augusta, Columbus and Macon, Ga., and Chattanooga, Tenn., in the South region as well as in Champaign, Ill.; Lansing, Mich.; and Rochester, Minn., in the Midwest. In addition to the expanding its 4G footprint, T-Mobile has aggressive plans to double the speed of its 4G network in 2011. T-Mobile expects that 140 million Americans in 25 major metropolitan areas will have access to these increased 4G speeds by midyear.
4G was activated in the following:
- Albany, GA
- Augusta, GA
- Columbus, GA
- Macon, GA
- Chattanooga, TN
- Champaign, IL
- Lansing, MI
- Rochester, MN
Looks like T-Mobile is readying a "4G for all" approach which is a great thing for the end-user! Happy browsing, everybody!
