T-Mobile expands HSPA+ network to new cities, will double speed next year T-Mobile has announced today that it has expanded its HSPA+ data network to nine new cities, making it available to over 100 million Americans.
The new markets are: Boston, Mass.; Erie, Penn.; Fresno, Palm Springs and San Diego, Calif.; Miami, Fla.; Richmond, Va.; Spokane, Wash.; and Topeka, Kan.

Furthermore, the carrier will double the theoretical peak speeds to 42 Mbps in 2011, a 100 percent jump from the current 21 Mbps max speeds.

The T-Mobile G2 will be the first handset to support HSPA+ when it launches in September.

That device has a theoretical peak speed of 14.4 Mbps, faster than Sprint's 4G network.

Would be nice if the iPhone could use this. T-Mobile has great plans for the price but a poor selection of phones.

It would be nice if they actually allowed phones to use this speed; T-Mobile customers don't even get the speeds that current phones & towers support, why should we trust that a faster theoretical speed will translate to faster connections?
