It's a great day for T-Moble subscribers in New York. The carrier announced that the company has taken the first commercial step in the rollout of its third-generation (3G) wireless network by launching its UMTS/HSDPA network in New York City.
T-Mobile plans to roll out the high-speed data network in major cities throughout the year and be up and running in areas where most subscribers currently use data services by the end of the year.
The 3G network allows much faster download speeds for content, web browsing, email and more for a superior web surfing and data experience. The carrier currently offers handsets that are 3G-capable and will be able to leverage the offering in major markets as they are activated throughout the year.
