I am sure that future or current customers will have more reasons to upgrade to 4G-capable devices, that T-Mobile is or will be offering, such as the myTouch 4G Slide, HTC Sensation or the rumored Samsung Hercules. In addition to all of that, T-Mobile is still one of the few carriers that is still offering an unlimited data plan. You can find the full press release down below.

Today, T-Mobile USA, Inc. announced that the company is doubling the speed of its 4G network in 56 additional markets, to reach more than 170 million people in 152 markets. T-Mobile customers now have access to T-Mobile’s faster 4G network in markets including Baltimore; Boston; Charlotte, N.C.; Hartford and New Haven, Conn.; Indianapolis, Ind.; Lancaster, Pa.; Minneapolis, Minn.; Providence, R.I.; and Washington, D.C., among several others. For a full list of new markets where T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 42 4G network is available, see below.

In addition to T-Mobile customers experiencing speeds twice as fast as T-Mobile’s current 4G network on compatible devices, customers also will enjoy increased network capacity and reliability. Offering a compelling 4G experience across a broad lineup of devices, America’s Largest 4G Network™ allows customers to stay connected in new and innovative ways in more places than ever before. From downloading files to streaming video or surfing the latest social networking sites, T-Mobile’s faster network provides a richer-than-ever mobile data experience, with anytime high-speed access to the data and information customers need and desire.

“America’s Largest 4G Network is now faster than ever and continues to deliver a fast and reliable broadband experience in more places than any other carrier,” said Neville Ray, chief technology officer, T-Mobile USA. “Video streaming on T-Mobile’s network has more than tripled over the last year, and consumer demand for access to rich mobile content from anywhere continues to grow. T-Mobile is now supplying more than 170 million Americans with lightning-fast HSPA+ 42 speeds to feed that explosive demand.”
T-Mobile’s portfolio of 4G products gives customers ultra-fast access to the content they want at home or on the go. The company recently introduced the T-Mobile Rocket™ 3.0 laptop stick, its first HSPA+ 42-capable device, offering average download speeds on its HSPA+ 42 network approaching 10 Mbps, with peak speeds of 27 Mbps. T-Mobile also continues to expand its 4G device lineup with innovative 4G handsets such as the new HTC Sensation™ 4G and the upcoming T-Mobile myTouch® 4G Slide. In the last year, T-Mobile has launched more than a dozen 4G-capable smartphones, tablets and mobile broadband products, and the company expects to launch its first HSPA+ 42 smartphone later this year.
