T-Mobile Launches Fastest 3G Wireless Network in U.S.

According to AndroidandMe, it was announced yesterday that T-Mobile's HSPA+ network "will be the nation’s fastest wireless 3G network (no longer AT&T), cover 185 million people (vs only 120 million for Sprint 4G), and be completed this year. However, they have yet to tout the network as 4G.

Some more good news for you T-Mobile subscribers is that HSPA+ is backwards compatible with previous versions of HSPA, which means individuals running Android-powered phones will have faster speeds without any updates/upgrades. A quote from Neville Ray, Senior VP of engineering and operations at T-Mobile USA:

“This year T-Mobile will upgrade its national 3G network to HSPA+ which will support faster speeds and give customers a superior wireless data experience when they access their mobile social network, stream videos or share content. T-Mobile’s network is primed to deliver the speeds that today’s data users crave...T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network is outperforming competing 3G wireless networks with speeds up to three times faster."

I hope that T-Mobile follows this announcement with a new phone that supports HSPA+, especially following Sprint's announcement of the HTC EVO 4G.
