When it rains, it pours…if by “pours” you mean trickles in several years after the competition. Whatever the case, T-Mobile appears to be turning on their 3G network in stages across the country. Following yesterdays switch flip in Philadephia the carrier appears to be on track to light things up in the New England area today, followed by a Phoenix, AZ launch on Friday. This is unconfirmed at the moment, but the info is in keeping with what we’ve heard about the company’s September plans. Any soldiers on the ground able to confirm the New England rollout? If so, how are those 3G speeds treating ya?
