T-Mobile 3G Rollout for ’09 Sneaks Out

leaked3gWhat good is a phone that relies heavily on internet and data usage if most of their customer base is stuck with EDGE speeds?  If T-Mobile want their G1 (and other Android handset) owners to get the most out of their phones, they’ll need to grow their 3G market considerably.   Looking at a recent leak, that’s exactly what T-Mobile plans to to.

Around 18 markets are set to get 3G over the next few months, with a heavy focus on Texas and Arizona.  Beyond that, the second half of the year looks pretty eventful too!

    Fantastic. The sales rep told me we'd have 3G in Norfolk in the first quarter. Now it's not even gonna happen this year.

      I just talked with T-Mobile about this AGAIN. I was told that Cincinnati was rolling out in September. Today is Nov 4. Not happening this year. "Their was now apology offered. We are sorry sir, but if the plans were changed, we have no control over that". I have been with T-Mobile for about 7 years now. They are about to loose me as a customer. I have a 3G card for my laptop from Verizon, and I love it. Might try to figure out how to unlock this G1, and move it to Verizon too.

    Greg, maybe if we start a 3G riot they'll bring it to us here in Cincy sooner. I was told most ares should have it by this summer. What a crock!

      agreed…im moving to tulsa soon and looking at cell phone options…no 3g in tulsa is a big turnoff.

    Still no New Orleans love????? I mean seriously! Even the residents in Shreveport come here to party. Why not 3g service. (Ignoring that whisper chanting “iphone”…….)
