Thanks for checking in on this. HSPA 7.2 will be enabled across T-Mobile’s entire 3G network by year-end.
- T-Mobile’s 3G network currently covers 250 U.S. cities, reaching approximately 180 million people. T-Mobile will continue to strengthen and grow its 3G network to reach approximately two-thirds of the U.S. population by the end of the year (more than 200 million POPs).
- T-Mobile will integrate HSPA+ into its 3G network in the next several months with broad national deployment anticipate for mid-2010. With HSPA+, customers will experience network throughput speeds that are three to five times faster than today’s 3G networks – with theoretical peak download speeds of 21Mbps (depending on device and other factors).
The devices on T-Mobile’s network which support HSPA 7.2 include:
- HTC G1
- HTC myTouch 3G
- Motorola CLIQ
- Samsung Behold II
- Touch Pro 2 (Windows)
- Dash 3G (Windows)
Even though all these devices support HSPA 7.2, it is still unclear if they will need a software update to enable this feature.
