The T-Mobile iPhone is going to happen. And it’s about time too. The carrier announced that it has a partnership in place with Cupertino to launch “Apple products” from 2013. So, despite the thought that the carrier didn’t want to deal with the level of expense spent by its rival, Sprint, the magenta-colored network provider has successfully negotiated a deal with our favorite fruit company.
Today, the carrier has announced three more markets with 4G: Atlanta, Seattle and Minneapolis. These will be iPhone friendly, and tests show that the 4G network on offer gives “70% faster download speeds than the 4S on AT&T’s network.” Just to be clear, this is the 1900MHz HSPA+ network we’re discussing here, so anyone in any of the locations mentioned below with an iPhone 4S/5 on T-mobile will be able to take advantage of the new network right away.
“T-Mobile customers will now experience improvements in areas including:
- Atlanta, including the surrounding cities of: Roswell, Alpharetta, Marietta, Covington and Conyers
- Seattle, including the surrounding areas of: Lynwood, Bothell, Mill Creek, Edmonds, Redmond, Kirkland, Woodinville, Bellevue, Issaquah, Sammamish, Kenmore, Mercer Island, North Bend, SeaTac, Burien, Tukwila, Renton, and Lake Stevens
- Minneapolis, including the nearby cities of: St. Paul and St. Cloud
- Additional Bay Area cites include: Fairfield, Monterey, Napa, Petaluma, Salinas, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa and Vallejo.”
