T-Mobile's choice of fast just got doubly faster in 42 -- clever, right? 42 new markets for its 42Mbps service -- of its HSPA+ markets. With this addition the tally for the faster service now stands at 97 centers -- when added to the 55 we saw launched back in May. To answer the question about how fast, T-Mobile's stating that average download speeds approach 10Mbps with a purported peak of 27Mbps on its Rocket 3.0 sticks. So if you're lucky enough to call Albuquerque, San Diego, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, or any of the other 38 new spots home, you're golden -- and maybe reading this a little quicker than that fella next to you. If you've missed this ship, fear not, this expansion won't be over anytime soon as T-Mob has it has its sights set on covering 190 million users by mid-year. Full PR is just a click away.
