going to happen eventually that T-Mobile’s
going to add 3G to their service offerings in the US, but while most people are speculating that it’ll be
later than sooner, apparently their SVP of Engineering Operations Neville Ray told BetaNews they’re already in
testing in some markets (he wouldn’t say which and what network technology they’re trying, be it UMTS or HSDPA), and that “by the end of 2006, and
definitely in 2007, [they]’d be able to bring 3G services to the market.” T-Mobile ought to be careful
though. Between this and their recent buy up of a bunch of 850MHz network capacity across a large swath of the central
states, we think some people might actually get the impression that they’re trying to expand their services and
be a competitive player in the US cellphone market.
