Come forth from your shame, T-Mobile faithful. At least if you live in the Big Apple.
Tmonews is dead certain T-Mobile will be lighting up New York City with their glorious new 3G network as soon as today, Thursday May 1. The months of speculating every time an exec cast a sideways glance at a reporter, or the FCC cleared another UMTS-capable handset for the US' #4 cellular carrier may finally be over.
According to the site, T-Mob will be flipping the switch in NYC first, followed (in order) by Austin, TX, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, MN, and Miami, with a host of other major markets to follow. No timeline was given for rollout in the other cities on the list, but seeing as San Francisco (the closest to me) is way down near the bottom, it looks like it's high time for me to get myself a 3G-capable T-Mobile phone for my mid-May trip to New York.
If you're out there in the Big Apple and already have one of those 3G-capable T-Mobile handsets, drop me a line and let me know what happens. Text along with photos and or videos will be published to the site so long as the network really goes live.
