Giant List Of Current Markets With T-Mobile’s 42Mbps HSPA+ Network

With the midnight announcement of additional HSPA+ 42Mbps networks there seemed to be a lot of confusion in the comments as to what cities had launched previously. Of course we provided the link to the last launch right in the post but we’ve decided to go one step further and give you the entire list of currently available markets. Well actually T-Mobile decided to do so and we’re reposting it but either way, you can see every single city that has launched thus far. All 96 of them! Are you on the list?

Speed:

  • By doubling the speed of its 4G network in markets across the country, T-Mobile customers will have access to the fastest 4G speeds available from T-Mobile.
  • T-Mobile has seen average download speeds approaching 10Mbps with peak speeds of 27 Mbps on the T-Mobile Rocket 3.0 laptop stick – the company’s first 42Mbps device.
  • T-Mobile’s increased network speed capabilities will benefit its customers using 3G and 4G devices for data services, as the backward compatible network pushes the limits of 3G and 4G devices to achieve maximum speed performance.
  • T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 4G network is poised to continue its aggressive evolutionary path to deliver speeds on par with LTE.

Breadth:

  • In 2011, T-Mobile will increased 4G network speeds to 150 million Americans by mid-year.
  • Currently, increased 4G speeds (HSPA+ 42) are available in 96 markets across the United States including:

    I need my update for the G2 before anything. Its a stock android phone from HTC and no got dam update as promised. Won’t get no other HTC for awhile if I can’t get a update like the Nexus has or the other older HTC phones. I hope everything goes good even if the merger with AT&T goes thru. Oh wait its going thru because there already showing commercials.

    • Pdxmatt

      HTC said the update will be this summer. Not technically summer yet. Be that as it may there are official GB ROMs out there that you can use and you don’t have to be rooted. I update 3 weeks ago.

    • Ronnie A.

      Just because the update hasn’t been pushed ita, doesn’t mean there aren’t official updates. (I’m with pdxmatt, I updated 3 weeks ago)

      And commercials don’t make the acquisition official, the fcc does.. if you haven’t looked at the commercials, they are an attempt to convince people att can co something they can’t. (I’m bitter towards att if you can’t tell)…

      Multiple things wrong here.
      1. G2 update has said its coming soon. It will come, and having gingerbread won’t have any effect on your network speeds.
      2. The nexus S and N1 get the latest Android updates because they’re Googles Phones. They’re made to get the latest updates.
      3. Just because AT&T has commercials advertising that they want to buy TMo, doesn’t mean it has gone through. They’re trying to get public support for it.

    They need to take Minneapolis off every 3G and 4G list. I live 2 miles from a tower in Minneapolis where there is supposedly hspa+ and I’m getting 500mb download on a good day with my MT4G.

        If you’re getting 1.5Mbps, be happy. I have “3G”, and I get 300kbps (that’s 0.3Mbps) on most days even with a good solid 3G signal.

    Im wondering with LTE having interference problems with GPS if it will end up being scrapped or something. And if so T-Mo will be in great shape with the HSPA+ and not losing money on having rolled out some LTE like some other companies.

    • Helton

      That is incorrect for many reasons. LTE doesn’t have problems. The GPS problems are caused by the band that lightsquared intends to deploy it on.

      Live in Waltham, 6 miles out of Boston and getting 12.5MB down and 1.7MB up. This is during the day when the Network is loaded. Not too Shabby. Just when T-Mobile gets their Network working like it should we have to worry about this damn buyout. Sticking with T-Mobile right to the end. 
      Thank You T-Mobile

    Can you provide a similar list of the markets that have HSPA+, but not at 42Mbps?  I haven’t seen any expansion of those raw 4G markets for a while; are the new ones coming in at 42 all upgrades from the earlier speed, or are some of them going directly from 3G (or maybe less?) to 4G 42?

    How do you know when your device is on HSPA+ vs HSPA? Is there an icon or something that lets you know? 

    • TMOTECH

      HSPA =3G HSPA+  = 4G. unless you have a myTouch 4G or a G2 then you will have to wait for the OTA update. Right now those 2 phones only say H. 
      And if you are on a site with HSPA + that is highly congested it will revert to 3G since the speed gets slowed down when the site is busy. Clear as MUD?

        Wait, what? OTA Update? Come on now, I’d expect a TMOTECH to know that it requires a HARDWARE upgrade for a non-HSPA capable phone to become HSPA capable. It is not possibly to suddenly make a 3g phone HSPA capable by an OTA update.

          You should know then the G2 and MT4G are not HSPA+ capable. They are only capable of HSPA 14.4 which doesn’t fall under the HSPA+ category. HSPA+ starts at category 14 which is HSPA+21 w/ 64QAM. ..

    The north and the north east east were held up due to the bad winter. People have to go to these sites and install equipment and others have to climb towers to modify antenna systems.Difficult to do when there are 15 foot snowdrifts and icicles on steel towers.  It is coming. New England has +21 right now and 42 will be coming soon. These things take time and Money. Every one hates on us but we are the smallest national carrier and have more 4G coverage than everyone else. be patient. 

    • Mark

      New England has +21 where?  From what I’ve seen on the map, it’s in central Boston and _maybe_ a bit around Portsmouth.  It certainly isn’t widespread at all, and unless the Portsmouth coverage bleeds over there’s nothing in Maine.

    Of course I’m not on the list. As long as TMO exsists in this form, I’ll never be on the list. Just because I’m not important enough for TMO to upgrade, hence the sooner TMO disappears, either by sale or just fade away, the happier I’ll be!
