T-Mobile Claims "America's Largest 4G Network" with HSPA+

T-Mobile expanded the availability of its HSPA+ network to six additional metropolitan areas, including Chicago, Ill.; Colorado Springs, Colo.; Ft. Wayne, Ind.; Louisville, Ky.; and Raleigh-Durham and Wilmington, N.C. T-Mobile's HSPA+ coverage now reaches 75 metropolitan areas across the country.

T-Mobile said its HSPA+ service delivers 4G-like speeds and is capable of exceeding the performance of the WiMAX and early-LTE competitors entering the market. Its network is capable of theoretical speeds up to 21Mbps and T-Mobile reports average download speeds approaching 5 Mbps on its myTouch 4G phone in some cities with peak speeds of nearly 12 Mbps.

To drive this point, T-Mobile USA is launching a national TV and digital advertising campaign calling itself "America's Largest 4G Network." The ads have begun airing on major TV networks and cable TV stations, including ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and TNT.
