T-Mobile USA is finally jumping into the 3G fray. They’re set to make the official press conference announcement tomorrow. T-Mobile and UMTS, together at last. Mobile internet junkies across the nation rejoice!
Last month, T-Mobile won bids for a big chunk of the 3G spectrum, so they should be well prepared for an onslaught of new UMTS users. T-Mobile’s variant of the high-speed wireless connection will run on the 1700MHz and 2100MHz bands, but it will take about a year and a half for full deployment. And they’ll have to do it with a new spokesperson.
