T-mobile's "almost 4G" HSPA+ 3G now live in 9 more cities

T-mobile continues to bring the latest update to their 3G network to more cities today, with the “4G-like” HSPA+ speeds now available in:

  • Boston, Mass.
  • Erie, Penn.
  • Fresno, Palm Springs and San Diego, Calif.
  • Miami, Fla.
  • Richmond, Va.
  • Spokane, Wash.
  • Topeka, Kan.

This brings the total number of HSPA+ cities up to 55, with 100 million lucky Americans now basking in the warmth that only high-speed 3G radio waves can bring*.

While the up-and-coming T-mobile G2 will be T-mobile’s first HSPA+ phone, the network maintains that you will see a speed boost on their other (plain ol’) HSPA phones.

So, are you in one of the 55 cities that now enjoy HSPA+ ? Have you seen a difference in speeds on your phone? Let us know in the comments. I’m curious.

*3G radio waves are no replacement for a good jacket or scarf. No responsibility taken if you catch a cold come winter.
