T-Mobile Launches UMTS/HSDPA in NYC

T-Mobile USA has launched its UMTS/HSDPA network in New York City. The 3G network rollout will continue across major metropolitan markets through the year. By year's end, T-Mobile expects its high-speed data network will be available in those cities where a majority of its subscribers currently use data services.

T-Mobile currently offers multiple phones that are able to operate on the UMTS network. In the coming months, T-Mobile plans to offer its first HSDPA device, along with new data-centric, all-in-one devices that help make the most of T-Mobile's high-speed data network.

T-Mobile also confirmed its intention to build upon its HotSpot Wi-Fi network.
