We’re still waiting on some handsets which can actually take advantage of these speeds but the USB stick that’s out now has performed admirably in a few tests we’ve seen.

Still, we can’t help but wish that we had a smartphone out which can fully take advantage of these speeds. Hopefully, it will just be a matter of time, as the battery hit shouldn’t be as bad as we’ve seen with 4G LTE phones on Verizon like the Droid Charge.
With this expansion, the T-Mobile HSPA+ 42 network now reaches more than 170 million American and its HSPA+ 21 network covers more than 200 million U.S. residents. The full list of new markets include:
