Boy Genius Report is claiming today that T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network is expanding into 19 more metropolitan areas throughout the United States on July 21st. The full list:

    • Austin, TX
    • Baltimore, MD
    • Birmingham, AL
    • Cincinnati, OH
    • Cleveland, OH
    • Columbus, OH
    • El Paso, TX
    • Ft. Worth, TX
    • Hawaii, HI
    • Indianapolis, IN
    • Jacksonville, FL
    • Kansas City, MO
    • Louisville, KY
    • Milwaukee, WI
    • Minneapolis, MN
    • Portland, OR
    • San Antonio, TX
    • Washington, D.C.
    • Wichita, KS

T-Mobile is certainly trying to get the jump on Verizon and AT&T’s soon-to-exist LTE networks. Their strategy is clearly focused on the establishment of HSPA+ in urban areas, rather than creating “blanketed” regions of service.

    Indianapolis, IL?

    • David Ruddock

      Hm, that list was taken straight from BGR's site. They must have made a typo! We've corrected it, thanks for letting us know.

  • bcj

    Louisville, KY not TN

    • David Ruddock

      Man, BGR really did not check this list before posting it. :( fixed.

  • Brian

    Where is Hawaii, HI? they form a new city?

    • David Ruddock

      I believe it just means the whole island.

  • Andromedo

    I am already seeing HSPA speeds (>3Mb down >1.2Mb Up) in certain parts of San Diego.

    It's awesome.

  • HDStarcraft

    Crap! Where's MY place? I'm sure there will be plenty of happy people... but I'm not on the list so I will not be happy.

    I love T-Mobile having the fastest network for bragging rights as I am so tired of hearing the trash of AT&T and Verizon customers.

    With that said, what good is a fast network if you don't have any phones that can take advantage of it???

    T-Mo, learn from Sprint, they had the Evo ready at the same time they started rolling out their so called 4G network.

      mw lets be real the 4g hspa+ really benefits websticks and netbooks with built in web. which tmobile has the rocket for that. as far as phones, all 3g phones benefit from the hspa,(so they all support hspa in a way) with a few exceptions (like the bb bold). So why are you running your mouth? Because wimax; isn't backwards compatible so all of sprints current phones can't benefit from it. it also didn't launch the first 4g phone (the EVO) until AFTER wimax was already out. and lastly, the vibrant supports hspa+ which just released the 15th originally slated for the 21st. (coincidence?) so please know what you're talking about before bashing the so-called carrier you love, for poor planning. if you had any idea what you were talking about you'd know what they're doing is f^&king Brilliant because 90% of their current phones will see a considerable speed increase.

      You're probably the flexpay customer that doesn't pay the bill on time, gets your phone shut off, and then tells all your friends t-mobile is gay and randomly shuts your phone off for no reason. thus giving them the bad vibes.

        and my apologies, the vibrant isn't hspa+ just hspa
