Is HSPA+ Coming To Your City? Find Out Now!


Now that Magenta has started rolling out its super fast HSPA+ with plans to cover over 100 major metropolitan cities (over 185 million people) by the end of 2010 and 75 million customers to be covered by the end of June, the question most of you want answered is, will your city get HSPA+? Well, the good folks over at T-Mobile have constructed a new map displaying current cities with HSPA+ coverage and cities that are scheduled to get HSPA+ in the future. Even though the map does not show exactly when these cities will get HSPA+ and simply reads “Coming Soon”, it’s definitely nice to know your city will indeed join in on the awesomeness that is HSPA+. Check the HSPA+ coverage map here. And while you’re at it, make sure to check out some of the videos explaining exactly what T-Mobile HSPA+ is and what it has to offer to consumers.

T-Mobile HSPA+ Fun Facts (You may know some of these or you might not, either way here they are):

  • Theoretical Capability of peak download speeds of up to 21 mbps
  • Theoretical Capability of peak upload speeds of up to 5.7 mbps
  • You don’t have to buy a new phone to take advantage of the new network—many existing T-Mobile® 3G phones and laptop sticks work too
  • Runs on state-of-the-art fiber optic technology
  • Up to 3 times faster than competitors standard 3G networks (Compared to AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon)
  • HSPA stands for High Speed Packet Access

      Thanks for posting this! I live near there and just ordered an HTC HD2. Good to know HSPA+ is working out here!

    Hmmm… T-Mobiles website is down and not loading for me at all.

  • Jak Crow

    The S.F. bay area doesn’t even have 7.2Mbps speeds. Why should we believe tmo is going to bring 21?

    • Tj

      Only HSPA+ phones will handle the 21mbps. current 3G phones will max out at 7.2 doesn’t mean you’ll always have that much, although it would be nice

    hmm. The speeds are faster than my DSL. Whenever “coming soon” happens (we’re one of the cities), I may drop DSL and use my Froyo wireless hotspot feature for my Internet Access.

    Since the site is down, has anyone seen when Phoenix will be getting this?

    • Kickstar13

      The coverage map does not display launch dates.

  • Blink

    According to the image above Oklahoma City and Tulsa are “live” but on T-Mobile’s site it is blue and says “Coming Soon”. Anyone know why it has changed?

    We have so many people in the former Suncom regional area ticked off that don’t see 3g coming much less 3.5 or 4g. I’ve have 2 TMOBILE G1′s (2 YR CONTRACT)since they came out and was told to look forward to 3g service. Well 4 more months my 2-year contract is up and all any TMO reps can say is they have no idea when or IF we’ll ever get it. I’ve read that several metropolitan areas with populations ranging from 275000 to 500000 have had 3g for sometime. The metropolitan population as noted in Wikipedia for my area is over 500000. TMO bought Suncom then quit using AT&T towers in our area. I now can’t even get a signal in most areas that i am in. My 3rd line used by my father is of no use as he can’t get a signal at his home anymore. Should TMO charge 3g data plan prices for Edge speeds that many times won’t load browser pages? For about $12 more (total) a month i can essentially get a similar plan with a competitor with real 3g….would no doubt be worth it. My stepdaughter now has an AT&T IPHONE so we can get any information fast as long as she’s with us…she pulls websites up in seconds as we get error messages. I just feel ripped off paying the same price (as someone who can get 3g) for a very inferior data plan with Edge. SPRINT, VERIZON AND AT&T ALL HAVE 3G SERVICE IN MY AREA…TMO’s HPSA+ is not coming soon…the last TMO rep i talked with told me that TMO just doesn’t have the funds to budget to get everyone up and running with 3g much less HPSA or HPSA+. I see why TMO is #4 and not gaining. Can’t wait till October…my 2 year anniversary of a smartphone on a dumb network and the end of my TMO experience.

    Good day to all,
    I would like you to know that I’m super duper happy as I have a super duper fast connection provided by tmobile now. I used speedtest.net in my old & dilapidated G1 and I got 6.5mbps then 2.6 uploads in Houston then when I tether it in my netbook then use again the speedtest.net I got this http://www.speedtest.net/result/852656301.png
    Its mind blowing as I hit one time the 16mbps but I didnt recorded it but the 14mbps u have it.Then my latency_ping are between 45-60 in my location-shadow creek ranch in pearland ( a bit outside of downtown houston ) then 70-150 in other locations.I did the test between 9:30am-10:00am as many people starting to use the service as my clear if that time of usage will be horrible.
    I have CLEAR now in the house that I’m paying for $40/month as I bought the modem,so no leasing fee for me just $40/month. That internet of mine hit the highest is 16mbps in early in the morning between (2-5am) but before or after that time I will hit only 3-6mbps download then 800-900kbps upload unlike tmobile from 1mbps-3mbps upload.
    I’m always travelling around Texas & I found out that Austin,Houston,Dallas & San Antonio has the highest download speed to compare to any cities when I compare in Westcoast & Eastcoast cities.
    Then if ever they will make more fiber optic backhaul they can minimize the latency problems others have now.I used to have that problem in my location but now its GONE.
    I’m not the kind of person wasting time to bash any company but now I will because I was with AT&T and they are full of lies company as I had my iphone 3gs & my wife & we never seen more than 2mbps connection the whole of Texas or whenever I was in California or New York. All PEOPLE WHO WILL SAY THEY SEE 3MBPS OR BEYOND (its not real), THEY ARE AT&T PEOPLE OR JUST ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO DEFEND AT&T EVEN AT&T DOESN’T CARE FOR THEM. Mine is real experience with my wife… I work in IT company & I always use the one that I think is not just cool but I can tweak & use the heck of it whatever it can offer unlike iphone that YOU can just unlocked & jailbreak (like what i do) but android & windows can be hack & put lots of fast & best ROM that apple iphone cant do. Our iphone is now an mp3 player in our cars, wants some pictures? Then my wife using the EVO as her company pay for her monthly then she just bought it from Sprint. Its a sweet phone but the speed is not consistent & theres time it will be switching a lot of times from 4g to 3g. But still wayyyyy better than verizon & AT&T. Take note, only Tmobile & Sprint didn’t have the cap now they will just throttle you if your beyond 5gb but no more paying overages (Tmobile then sprint in 4g mode). Can Verizon & AT&T do that? Nope & never because AT&T made the worse decision in lowering the internet usage to 2gb for $25 (Tmobile has $20 for unlimited no cap with super duper fast internet 16mbps versus 1mbps by AT&T) then Verizon is thinking now to do that also as Sprint & Tmobile will go for no capping.
    Theres a lot of fanboys especially in APPLE stuff like iphone that has the basic stuff that was available 10 years ago but Steve Jobs will say magical & unbelievable, he’s the no. 1 liar in the world (I have a friend who still working in APPLE) I’m just new here in Texas as I’m from California & work with IT company near APPLE. But Texas is the best place to make money now (hehe) then cheaper way of living… He said to me that Steve Jobs is very good in marketing hype but he’s not the real guy who’s thinking & making apple stuff to work, he’s just the marketing guy of APPLE. Then all of his components are made mostly of asus & samsung (not them as other blindly knows) only software & design are theirs, I can attest to that, so wheres APPLE real product-NONE. They are just a big marketing & design company, if you don’t believe go to California (to their main headquarter) see if they building any pieces of material to use for their products – none, most of what they are doing is just software & how to market their product. I was there with my friend & I know what I’m saying. Ask ASUS & SAMSUNG then FOXCONN, they will tell you that no parts are made by apple, they will give the design then what materials will use ( APPLE ) then they will wait for delivery then they will use their technology & manpower to build APPLE products ( FOXCONN ).
    FANBOYISM towards APPLE is not bad but you should know the reality of what the company you like & love what they really offer to you & if they lying to you.
    Back to Tmobile, they are the company to watch for & they are not like AT&T that will make advertising 1st before they will do the action, as tmobile will do the work & everything before they will announce in a simple way unlike AT&T like APPLE, they love marketing hype like shortage of Iphone in the 1st day as they know how many people will go & get them but they will not release many units to show they don’t have unit to sell, believe me or not those iphone & ipad was made already & its millions now in FOXCONN factory but they will release only hundreds thousands then it will show to their system they don’t have stock anymore even they have more, for the people to be more excited & feel the APPLE products are so good that people lining up & their hysteria in getting in store or online, thats MARKETING 101, YOU HAVE TO MAKE PEOPLE EXCITE IN YOUR PRODUCTS THEN THEY WILL THINK YOUR PRODUCTS IS SO GOOD THAT PEOPLE NEEDS TO WAIT FOR LONG TIME.
    I hope people will get it now as I want you to be more well aware of what those companies been doing to you, they making you follow them even they are shortchanging you.
    I want to share more my ideas, experience & knowledge about all these stuff – just don’t go with the hype, test drive it – tweak it & if you feel it has everything u want & its more cheaper – go for it… you can email me at sir1honda@aol.com ( i can give you the best advice in telecommunications & computers stuff if I have enough time to answer )
    To all those people bashing each other because you like this or that, think first & I suggest that research in google then don’t defend what you have that you feel is not giving you the real deal. WE LIVE ONCE NOT TWICE , LIVE TO THE FULLEST ( get the best stuff that you think is appropriate & can make things more easier to you not just LOOKS & BRAND NAME of the products.
    Always take care gurls & guys… GOD BLESS YALL…

  • Turtle6988

    I am a tech for T-Mobile, the way the launch works is we bring up HSDPA+ as the backhaul and equipment is installed at the sites. T-Mobile will not announce the launch until a certain percentage of sites go live in that market.

    • jshapz

    • Lexcore

      What ABOUT PENSACOLA FLORIDA any word??????????????????

    Just saw that the new Vibrant will not support hspa+ – Why is TMobile promoting their upcoming coverage maps when as I understand it they do not have any devices that support hspa+?

  • Heezy
