T-Mobile Adds 56 Additional Cities To HSPA+ 42Mbps Markets

An unexpected but welcome surprise is tonights addition of 56 markets to T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 42Mbps network which now covers more than 170 million people in 152 markets. In addition to enjoying the increased network speeds customers will “also enjoy increased network capacity and reliability.”

“America’s Largest 4G Network is now faster than ever and continues to deliver a fast and reliable broadband experience in more places than any other carrier,” said Neville Ray, chief technology officer, T-Mobile USA. “Video streaming on T-Mobile’s network has more than tripled over the last year, and consumer demand for access to rich mobile content from anywhere continues to grow. T-Mobile is now supplying more than 170 million Americans with lightning-fast HSPA+ 42 speeds to feed that explosive demand.”

T-Mobile only has one HSPA+ 42Mbps capable device right now in the T-Mobile Rocket 3.0 laptop stick though we expect that number to increase by years end. The last line of this release emphasizes T-Mobile’s plan to release its first HSPA+ 42Mbps smartphone later this year. If the rumors are correct it’s possible that the upcoming Samsung Hercules just might be the chosen one but with plenty time left in 2011 it’s anyones guess.

Check out the full list of cities:

Allentown, Pa.; Anderson, S.C.; Asheville, N.C.; Ann Arbor, Mich.; Baltimore, Md.; Barnstable, Mass.; Bellingham, Wash.; Bloomington, Ind.; Boise, Idaho; Boston, Mass.; Bremerton, Wash.; Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk, Conn.; Brunswick, Ga.; Carson City, Nev.; Charlotte, N.C.; Charlottesville, Va.; Chico, Calif.; Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; Eugene, Ore.; Flagstaff, Ariz.; Flint, Mich.; Greensboro, N.C.; Greenville, S.C.; Harrisburg, Pa.; Hartford, Conn.; Indianapolis, Ind.; Knoxville, Tenn.; Lafayette, Ind.; Lancaster, Pa.; Laredo, Texas; Lynchburg, Va.; Manchester, N.H.; Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn.; New Haven, Conn.; Ogden, Utah; Providence; R.I.; Provo, Utah; Raleigh-Cary, N.C.; Redding, Calif.; Reno-Sparks, Nev.; Richmond, Va.; Roanoke, Va.; Rockford, Ill.; Salem, Ore.; Scranton-Wilkes-Barre, Pa.; Spartanburg, S.C.; State College, Pa.; Tallahassee, Fla.; Terre Haute, Ind.; Tucson, Ariz.; Washington, D.C.; Wichita Falls, Texas; Winchester, Va.; Winston-Salem, N.C.; Worcester, Mass.; and York, Pa.

“America’s Largest 4G Network is now faster than ever and continues to deliver a fast and reliable broadband experience in more places than any other carrier,” said Neville Ray, chief technology officer, T-Mobile USA. “Video streaming on T-Mobile’s network has more than tripled over the last year, and consumer demand for access to rich mobile content from anywhere continues to grow. T-Mobile is now supplying more than 170 million Americans with lightning-fast HSPA+ 42 speeds to feed that explosive demand.”

T-Mobile’s portfolio of 4G products gives customers ultra-fast access to the content they want at home or on the go. The company recently introduced the T-Mobile Rocket™ 3.0 laptop stick, its first HSPA+ 42-capable device, offering average download speeds on its HSPA+ 42 network approaching 10 Mbps, with peak speeds of 27 Mbps. T-Mobile also continues to expand its 4G device lineup with innovative 4G handsets such as the new HTC Sensation™ 4G and the upcoming T-Mobile myTouch® 4G Slide. In the last year, T-Mobile has launched more than a dozen 4G-capable smartphones, tablets and mobile broadband products, and the company expects to launch its first HSPA+ 42 smartphone later this year.

    I guess there’s the upside to the AT&T acquisition – HSPA+ is already deployed and available across just about all of their service area.

    • Anonymous

      No, the side is AT&T acquisition has to tear down ALL of these HSPA+ deployments because they’re sitting on AT&T’s LTE deployment spectrum.  Makes all the expansion moot because it has to be razed to the ground.

      • DetroitTechnoFan

        HSPA+ > LTE
        Better compatibility with existing devices and just as fast.

          Who are you responding to? Of course T-Mobile HSPA+ is better than any current LTE deployment.

          The topic is T-Mobile’s HSPA+ deployment won’t exist under AT&T. Read again and look it up.

    If it weren’t for UMA, I would’ve been completely disconnected, but as Wi-Fi hotspots were hard to come by, it still wasn’t a good enough replacement for good cellular service.

      It’s not 99% of the time for me, but I’d say it’s realistically about a solid 30% of the time that I’ll be on EDGE. I work in Downtown LA and the speeds there are less than mind-blowing. Only 1-2 Mbps if I’m lucky. I get the same speeds on my myTouch 4G and my Nexus One. For the most part, however, “4G” speeds in LA in general just aren’t that fast. More likely to see 200-500 Kbps than the 5-10 Mbps you hear about in other parts of the country. On rare occasion if I’m literally sitting underneath a tower in Orange County, I sometimes see 3-5 Mbps. Rare though.

    Ok well maybe some people need to understand how this whole thing works. Basically the way it works is that there has to be proper backhall of hardware in order to get the speeds needed. The hardware is something that the landline companies need to lay down and upgrade their old systems. So it isn’t all of T-Mobile’s fault for the lack of 42+ in those area.

    As for those who live in rural areas. If you live in an area in which you refer to your location as a “county” you are probably in too small to probably even get non satellite cable let alone 3G or 4G service. Putting on 3G or 4G isn’t cheap. There is usually a cost benefit done on these things. If you want 3G or 4G I would recommend moving out of the hills…

    • TMOTECH

      Unless you are in FL or TX. We are making a best effort to expand 3G/4G to rural areas this year as an experiment to see the impact it makes. If it works as expected you will see it happen in the rest of the country as well. 
      That is of course unless ATT squashes it after they take over…….

      • Anonymous

        I have posted extensively oh how this is a lie that T-Mobile employees are passing around.  And you know it is because buyer’s remorse applies to the phone AND the service.

        I know how T-Mobile is wiggling out of making this misrepresentation when caught (and how it is responding to PUC complaints): If pushed by the customer, T-Mobile will say “Oh what we mean is that you have to pay for the service used during the time you had the phone.  You have to pay for calls and a prorated portion of the monthly plan.”

        Telling customers that the “buyer’s remorse is for phones only” is an attempt to mislead the customer into not exercising his or her buyer’s remorse rights.  T-Mobile is saying this in an attempt to con people into thinking they have to stay under contract and that all they can do under buyer’s remorse is swap the phone.

        Aside from the fact that by saying this defrauds customers, what you say lacks common sense.

        Think about it people, buyer’s remorse would be a meaningless law if one could return a $200 purchase, but have to stay bound to a $1800 service contract, for example. The reason buyer’s remorse was a big deal when the laws passed was because it allows people to cancel the phone AND the service contract.

        (Note: it’s carrier conduct like this that required legislatures to pass consumer bills of rights.)

        NOTE PEOPLE:  If you want to influence the AT&T acquisition, file a formal Public Utilities Commission online complaint that T-Mobile is engaging in illegal conduct in here and on the phone (and probably in stores) when saying that buyer’s remorse does not apply to service contracts, and is conning people into not exercising such rights.

      • Anonymous

        Yes, really.
        If somebody switched to T-Mo, got a new phone as part of the deal and then they decided that they didn’t like T-Mo’s coverage…you’re saying they can return the phone, but they’re stuck with the service contract?  Really?
        Last year I bought a G2 when it came out and extended my contract in order to get the “on-contract” price. I decided to return the phone and, naturally, the extended contract was removed.  Of course — nothing else would make sense.

        • Shwim

          Check to see if you switched to a Promo Rate Plan…. those rate plan changes extend your contract whether you get a discounted phone or not. So, even if you return the phone within buyer’s remorse, your new rate plan is still holding the contract dates. But, by returning the phone, you are still eligible for a discounted handset in the future.

          But on the other hand, if it’s a new activation, then you CAN cancel the line within 30 days in CA (not sure about other states). It’s different if you have an existing line and just extend by selecting a new rate plan.

    I don’t know what to think about these theoretical speeds. I live in Scranton PA and the speeds there are pretty bad. YouTube takes forever to load and forget about even thinking of using HQ. Now I’ve been to NYC and LA recently and the speeds there are blazing fast. I know I’m in a good area when I play YouTube videos and they automatically go to HQ. As far as I know Scranton PA has the same 4g coverage as LA & NYC. Why is it that Scranton speeds suck and those other two cities are amazingly fast when there’re suppose to be the same. Don’t get me wrong I love T-Mobile. I’ve been with them since 2004 and I don’t plan on leaving. I’m just venting a little about their inconsistent network. It’s almost like the amount of bars I get in Scranton are misleading. I get full bars but everything takes forever to load. I don’t understand it. Oh well, hope it all gets worked out.

    This is great.  HOWEVER, I’ve noticed lately that I’ve been getting more & more dead spots in the KC metro that I never used to have before.  Also, I’m still not completely over going to a wedding over a long weekend in central Kansas, an hour north of Wichita which has 42mbps speeds & only getting GPRS the entire time.  Most of the weekend, my phone was useless.  This was a pain trying to coordinate wedding plans, & really soured me to T-Mo. I still want T-Mo to prevail, I just think they need to work on more coverage instead of speeds right now.

    just read this

    “T-Mobile has launched more than a dozen 4G-capable smartphones, tablets and mobile broadband products, and the company expects to launch its first HSPA+ 42 smartphone later this year.”

    they’re launching their FIRST 42mbps phone later this year … so there isn’t even one phone on the network currently that can support these speeds lol fail.  and it’s not even the Sensation or Slide wtf … Hercules maybe?

    i’ll wait no doubt now for an upgrade.

      How is that a fail? When do networks ever release a phone with a heightened speed? Verizon had 4G 4 months before a 4G phone… That wasn’t a fail? It’s laptop sticks kiddo…

      • http://www.fiftyonemarketing.com Deacon

        so that’s like saying hey come check out all these new cars you can drive but wait for the steering wheel …  if you market something that i can’t take advantage of at the time you market it, it’s a fail.  i don’t care what VZ did .. i’m not with VZ.

        this is stupid to even promote when there are no devices that currently allow their customers to even benefit from it.

        maybe there’s better performance for existing capped phones but still .. are they banking on the millions of people who had hardware that can’t physically take advantage of this to somehow get upgrades when the Hercules comes out?

        i highly doubt that … so again, it’s fail.  don’t tell me about a Big-Mac that’s coming to my area until you build the damn McDonalds for me to eat one.

          The only fail is your inability to read, there are devices, just not phones. Besides increasing the theoretical speed to 42Mbps it still increases the speeds of the less capable devices (7.2/14.4/21). So your analogy is actually incorrect. So in case youre having trouble understanding, T-Mobile increasing peak theoretical speeds to 42Mbps makes my 21Mbps phone faster. How is that pointless? Especially with 42Mbps websticks? All companies release the network with websticks before phones. You don’t anything about wireless and nobody cares about your half thought out opinion.

        • http://www.fiftyonemarketing.com Deacon

          lmao my inability to read or yours? i’m specifically talking about phones duh.  phones that would be purchased had they been available.  if you can name me 10 people you know with that device i’d listen to your rants lol.

          and apparently you care about my opinion … and the only one half though out is you.  but then i understand people like you who just can’t seem to understand the simplest of things nor realize that everyone has an opinion.

          my opinion is that they should have PHONES to take advantage of this before shoving it down my throat acting as if i should care about 42mbps in my area when they don’t even have the means for me to take advantage of it WITH A PHONE.’

          and furthermore, my point about new hardware was that it never goes that way … there are STILL an incredible amount more who purchase 2G/3G phones than 4G. ask TMO how that “banking” is going?  if you think however that all of their customers are going to cash in on these  42mbps phones when they come out, you’re as clueless as your responses.  people are knee jerk customers meaning they buy on impulse mostly now had these 42 mbps PHONES been available when TMO said “hey higher speeds are available, upgrade now” then the turnover would be higher.

          HOWEVER, marketing this 42mbps thing when there are zero PHONES for people to buy because well ya know people sign up for mobile service to use PHONES on … it makes no sense to me.

          game, set, match.

          I’m seriously never surprised at the amount of stupid people I encounter on this blog, let’s review your argument.

          “this is stupid to even promote when there are no devices that currently allow their customers to even benefit from it.”

          No devices?  Hmmm… Sure seems like there are devices just not phones, the same as when 21 Mbps launched guess what?  The MT4G and G2 launched in Nov/Oct respectively despite the fact that the network was upgraded in May.  Same with Sprint/ Verizon/ & AT&T.  Of course you now more than the wireless networks though, how foolish of me.

          “don’t tell me about a Big-Mac that’s coming to my area until you build the damn McDonalds for me to eat one.”

          Completely irrelevant and not even close to a proper analogy.  The network is already in place and the CURRENT PHONES get tremendous speed boosts as a result.  When the network was capped at 21Mbps and the phones were 21Mbps they got peak speeds of around 8-10.  Now they are getting speeds up to 16 Mbps, how is that NOT good news for customers?

          “are they banking on the millions of people who had hardware that can’t physically take advantage of this to somehow get upgrades when the Hercules comes out?’

          Here comes the contradiction, how could T-Mobile be waiting on people to buy the Hercules when in fact improving the network theoretical speeds improves EVERY 7.2Mbps and higher device?  This has nothing to do with the Hercules.  T-Mobile is in the best position to keep on raising the peak speed on the network because unlike Sprint and Verizon you dont actually need to buy a “4G” device to benefit from these upgrades, but whether you own a 14.4, 21, or 42.  You win as a result of the upgrade.  So what exactly are you talking about?  How is this not a half thought out comment?

          “there are STILL an incredible amount more who purchase 2G/3G phones than 4G. ask TMO how that “banking” is going?”

          This is 100% non factual and you have absolutely no facts to support this baseless claim.  What people are buying all these 2G phones that are not available other than flip phones?  What people are buying these 3G smart phones?  You mean the Optimus, Comet and HD7?  Yeah those phones are flying off the shelves… You’re an idiot.

          ‘if you think however that all of their customers are going to cash in on these  42mbps phones when they come out, you’re as clueless as your responses.  people are knee jerk customers meaning they buy on impulse mostly now had these 42 mbps PHONES been available when TMO said “hey higher speeds are available, upgrade now” then the turnover would be higher.”

          So not only is turnover the wrong word here, you surely meant turnout.  These comments are ridiculously stupid.  You even though you dont know anything THINK you know something.  At least you know the difference between 14.4, 21 and 42Mbps.  However 98% of customers do not.  All they know is 4G.  If people went out buying phones based upon peak speed Sprint would not be able to sell any of their “4G” devices and neither would AT&T when they launched 2 “4G” devices that couldnt exceed 2Mbps.  Anyone savvy enough to know the difference between these speeds is in the minority.  Again so not only does this contradict your statement about most people buying 2G/3G devices which is wrong anyway.  It also isnt true, all customers want to know is if the device is 4G.  That’s it.  The allure of 4G is what draws them in, customers dont go into wireless stores asking about peak theoretical speeds and backhaul.

          “HOWEVER, marketing this 42mbps thing when there are zero PHONES for people to buy because well ya know people sign up for mobile service to use PHONES on … it makes no sense to me”

          smartest thing you said, it makes no sense to YOU, but maybe you should try harder to get your peanut sized brain to wrap the concept that increasing peak theoretical speeds ACTUALLY DOES BENEFIT ALL PHONES.  This is like opening up more lanes on the highway and increasing the speed limit.  Whether you have a Porsche 911 or a Chevy Aveo, this helps you get to where you want to get faster.

          “game, set, match.”

          Yeap, you’re right… Game over… Please dont repeat the same thing to me, your comments are baseless and foolish, laced with non factual opinions trying to pass as facts.  Cut it out man.

          you win billi .. you’re smarter than a fifth grader. you were able to make sentences and even throw insults. i’m sure your parents would be proud to know you’ve mastered these two essential life lessons.

          BTW the part of your argument that talks about banking on people buying new hardware… That’s the dumbest argument ever. One could use that same argue to say why even create a 4G network? Wouldn’t they be banking on customers buying new hardware? Why make a 4G network if people have to buy new phones? Foolishness…
