T-Mobile’s at it again, this time upgrading your data speeds free of charge. In their press release, T-Mobile has announced that they are doubling the speeds of their 4G network in an additional 56 markets. That brings the grand total now to 152 markets with T-Mobile’s blazing fast HSPA+ 42Mbps data speeds. Apparently, their goal is to hit 150 million Americans with their new HSPA+ data speeds by the middle of the year.
Although these data speeds are enough to make any tech-head giddy with excitement, T-Mobile has yet to release an HSPA+ 42Mbps compatible smartphone (current 4G phones are only capable of 21 Mbps down). They hope to change that with the release of one later this year. I’ve got a hunch it will be one of those new fangled “Android’s” everyone’s talking about these days.
To see if you’ve made it onto the list, here are the newly upgraded markets: 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.
