The Big Easy Wakes Up To 3G

mmp_NewOrleans_0408_article

This morning, New Orleans became the next city in the magenta world to begin enjoying all that is 3G goodness. With yesterday’s press release of the Motorola Cliq, T-Mobile stated that they plan to cover 200-million pops by the end of the year and this week bevy of launches shows just that. New Orleans is a town unlike any other and I’m happy to deliver the news to its fine residents/T-Mobile customers of their newly discovered faster speeds. This is just one more reason to begin saving up those pennies and get that Cliq pre-ordered as soon as possible!

UPDATE: Baton Rouge is also being reported as going live, though unconfirmed at this point!

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

  • kclark710

    For those of you who live in Baton Rouge and now have 3G, what type of phone do you have? I am in BR and my Blackberry 8900 still shows EDGE.

    @kclark710 only Blackberrys with the 9000 designations have 3g in other words the 8900 is not 3g

  • kclark710

    Thanks TmoFoSHo

  • PJBig Easy

    3g signal in New Orleans is super weak. two bars of Edge is fawster on data than the 3G I have now. AND is is even worse on the North Shore of Lake Ponchartrain. Is this just a teating period? If this is all it is I will be moving on.
