Posted: 24-Mar-2010 [Source: T-Mobile USA]

[T-Mobile unveils plans to upgrade its national 3G service to High Speed packet Access Plus (HSPA+) by the end of 2010 covering more than 100 metro areas and 185 million people. T-Mobile also announced its latest mobile broadband product - the Dell Inspiron Mini 10 with built-in access to T-Mobile's 3G network.]

Las Vegas & Belevue, WA -- T-Mobile USA, Inc. showcased the nation’s fastest 3G wireless network on its latest mobile broadband devices at CTIA in Las Vegas. The company unveiled plans to upgrade its national high-speed 3G service to the High Speed Packet Access Plus (HSPA+) technology, which will deliver customers data speeds faster than the current 3G network technology1. By the end of 2010, T-Mobile expects to have HSPA+ deployed across the breadth of its 3G footprint, covering more than 100 metropolitan areas and 185 million people.

T-Mobile hosted live demonstrations of the home broadband-like HSPA+ data speeds on a variety of products including the new Dell™ Inspiron™ Mini 10 with T-Mobile® webConnect™ — T-Mobile’s first netbook — which launches March 24 online and in T-Mobile stores in select markets.2

“Consumers want a mobile broadband experience that’s easy and as good as their connection at home on the best wireless devices available,” said Neville Ray, senior vice president of engineering and operations for T-Mobile USA. “This year T-Mobile will upgrade its national 3G network to HSPA+ which will support faster speeds and give customers a superior wireless data experience when they access their mobile social network, stream videos or share content. T-Mobile’s network is primed to deliver the speeds that today’s data users crave.”

T-Mobile successfully launched its HSPA+ network service in Philadelphia last fall providing customers access to one of the fastest and most modern wireless networks in the U.S. T-Mobile now has made HSPA+ commercially available in new markets including major areas of New York City, New Jersey, Long Island and suburban Washington, D.C., with deployment in Los Angeles coming very soon.

The company will continue to aggressively expand the availability of HSPA+ in additional 3G markets, putting the necessary backhaul capacity in place to support the very fast speeds. Today, its 3G high-speed data network covers more than 206 million people.

T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network is outperforming competing 3G wireless networks with speeds up to three times faster. Blazing fast actual peak download speeds3 were demonstrated today in Las Vegas using both new and current mobile broadband devices, including the T-Mobile webConnect Rocket™ USB Laptop Stick, the first HSPA+ capable device from a national U.S. wireless carrier; the Dell Inspiron Mini 10; the HTC HD2; the Motorola CLIQ XT™ and the T-Mobile myTouch® 3G.

“The webConnect Rocket and Dell Inspiron Mini 10 are the latest mobile broadband products that deliver real customer benefits with faster speeds available today,” said Cole Brodman, chief technology and innovation officer for T-Mobile USA. “And the great thing about T-Mobile’s 3G network evolution is its backward compatibility — most of our 3G smartphones will deliver a better mobile Web experience. Customers don’t have to spend money on a device upgrade, which is a rarity in consumer electronics.”

Dell Inspiron Mini 10 with T-Mobile webConnect

T-Mobile’s newest mobile broadband product, the Dell Inspiron Mini 10, features built-in access to T-Mobile’s 3G network, Windows® 7 — Microsoft Corp.’s latest operating system — and the Intel® Atom™ processor N450 for easy Web surfing, instant messaging, e-mail, social networking, photo sharing and superb multimedia playback in one small, ultra-portable device. The Dell Inspiron Mini 10 is small and lightweight, weighing just three pounds, and its integrated six-cell battery easily provides up to eight hours of continuous usage.
