T-Mobile launches HSPA+ network to 15 new cities T-Mobile has announced the launch of the HSPA+ network in 15 new cities this week, giving users speeds faster than that of Sprint's 4G.
The network has already been available in New York, Philadelphia, Memphis and a few other cities for some time, but now T-Mobile subscribers in Atlanta, Houston, Seattle, Tampa, Orlando, Pittsburgh, Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, New Orleans, and Charleston can use the very fast data network on their smartphones and netbooks.

Important to note, however, is that not all phones can use the HSPA+ network, and the phones that work are pictured below. Most are Android devices like the myTouch series and the HTC HD2.

Additionally, the fourth largest carrier in the U.S. is now also offering a HSPA+-friendly USB dongle, dubbed the webConnect Rocket, for netbook users wanting the fast connection.

T-Mobile's "3.5G" HSPA+ network promises speeds of up to 21 Mbps.

So I'm guessing unlocked iPhones on T-Mobile still can't use this?
