T-Mobile upgrades HSPA+ speeds to 42Mbps in three cities T-Mobile USA has announced today that it will double the speed of its HSPA+ 4G network in New York, Las Vegas and Orlando, bringing the theoretical speed to 42Mbps, lightyears ahead of LTE and WiMax connections from Verizon, Sprint and AT&T.
Long Island, parts of New Jersey and Chicago will get the expansion soon.

By the start of the Q3 this year, T-Mobile says 140 million Americans in 25 markets will have access to the boosted speeds.

The carrier will offer 25 HSPA+ capable smartphones and tablets this year.

Earlier in the week, AT&T announced it would be purchasing T-Mobile USA for $39 billion, barring any regulatory setbacks, making it the only GSM carrier in the United States.
