T-Mobile completes 3G network upgrade to HSPA 7.2 Mbps

t-mobile-logoPotentially some good news for those T-Mobile fans out there. T-Mobile has completed a scheduled 3G upgrade to its entire network, an upgrade which boosts HSPA speeds from 3.6 Mbps to 7.2 Mbps. T-Mobile had initially promised the speed bump by the end of 2009, but hey, better late than never when it comes to bandwidth. T-Mobile is also promising another upgrade is in 2010 to HSPA+ with peak speeds of 21 Mbps; a trial is already underway in Philadelphia. In our own, very rudimentary, tests here in Boston, we aren’t seeing the 7.2 Mbps type speeds we were hoping, 1990 Kbps down and 200 Kbps up, but we’re keeping our hopes up. Any T-Mo users out there that can report faster 3G speeds?
