T-Mobile continues to expand its HSPA+ 42 network, as the super-fast 4G network will be coming to 56 more markets starting today.
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. On the bright side, the company’s devices like the Galaxy S 4G, Sidekick 4G and the recently-announced myTouch 4G Slide can get up to 21 Mbps down.
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:
