T-Mobile announced this morning that their entire 3G network as been boosted to a peak speed of 7.2mbps, up from the 3.6mbps it was just a few days ago and the speed AT&T is still at. Granted T-Mobile’s network is smaller than AT&T, but they claim their 3G service reaches a cool 200 million people. That’s a good start. I have personally had excellent service with T-Mobile before.
It’s been known for a while that T-Mobile was working it’s 7.2mbps network update, there were even some rumors it’d already started. However, T-Mobile made it official today, the day Google is set to announce their Nexus One phone which just so happens to support T-Mobile’s 3G network at that crazy fast 7.2mbps speed. Well, crazy-relatively-fast speed considering you’re still on a mobile device. Let’s hope they push forward with their HSPA+21 mbps upgrade. anyone know if the hardware in the Nexus One would support the HSPA+ 21mbps speeds? I don’t think so according to the leaked hardware specs.
