Less than a month ago, T-Mobile expanded its HSPA+ network into five new markets across the country. Today their 4G coverage is growing again, but this time 10 new cities will be feeling the high-speed data love. If you're a T-Mo customer and happen to live in Ames, Iowa; Anderson, Ind.; Battle Creek, Benton Harbor and Jackson, Mich.; Fort Collins-Loveland, Colo.; Lawrence and Manhattan, Kan.; Springfield, Ill.; or Wichita Falls, Texas, you can now revel in the fact that you're covered by Magenta's 4G footprint. T-Mobile's HSPA+ network now covers 167 markets and over 200 million people. Additionally, T-Mobile reiterated that they'll be soon be rolling out 42Mbps HSPA+ speeds in Las Vegas, New York and Orlando, with Chicago, Long Island, and Northern New Jersey to follow shortly.
Not only is it exciting to see T-Mo continue to aggressively build out its 4G network, but it's also good that they haven't really changed much since the news of AT&T's potential acquisition, which is also evidenced by the new unlimited plan that we saw leak last night. So, if you're a T-Mobile user that just so happens to call one of these newly-minted 4G areas home, don't be scared to shout it out below.
