T-Mobile Adds Eight New Cities To Their 4G HSPA+ Network

Today T-Mobile announced a slew of new markets now able to take advantage of their 4G HSPA+ speeds while also highlighting their plans for the future. While T-Mobile admits their priority now lies in the preparation of their future LTE network, they will continue to improve their HSPA+ network with the possibility of eventually having 84Mbps theoretical download speeds. Since no one can predict the future, we’ll stick to what’s going on right now and that is the eight new cities with HSPA+:

  • Abilene, Texas
  • Amarillo, Texas
  • Odessa, Texas
  • Victoria, Texas
  • Bakersfield, Calif.
  • Eau Claire, Wis.
  • Joplin, Mo.
  • St. Joseph, Mo.

Let’s hope all the spectrum they’ll be gaining from the failed AT&T merger gives them the boost they need because they’re starting to fall way behind in a market that’s moving much faster than HSPA+. What do you think, is it too late for T-Mobile or can they bounce back?
