T-Mobile to launch 3G network October 1st

T-Mobile launching 3G

After trials in New York, T-Mobile is preparing to unveil its nation-wide 3G network on October 1st, according to a poster that reveals a selection of major US cities to first receive the service. While members of the community previously tossed around the date, the poster confirms that users in Los Angeles, as Vegas, Dallas, New Jersey, Washington, and 21 other cities will be able to use 3G-capable T-Mobile devices with the network's faster transfer rates and superior call quality.

The move comes in response to increased competition from AT&T, who holds the sole distribution license for the iPhone 3G in North America, as well as the inclusion of the BlackBerry Bold, and Samsung Q1.

    iPhone 3G != Tmobile 3G

    Unfortunately for you T-mobile users out there with a 3G iPhone, they are using a rare UMTS/3G band that the iPhone (and most other current 3G phones) don't support, so you are stuck on GSM/EDGE "2G"
