Baltimore, Houston, Washington D.C. get improvements

T-Mobile announced today that it was activating its 4G HSPA+ network in three major metropolitan areas with the goal of improving coverage and getting faster speeds for owners of unlocked iPhones. T-Mobile customers in Washington D.C. and surrounding areas, Baltimore, and Houston will now reportedly see a significant boost on T-Mobile's network. T-Mobile's internal testing reportedly showed a 70 percent download speed boost for the iPhone 4S on T-Mobile's network over AT&T's network.

The carrier is reportedly working on additional network advancements for Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, San Diego, and Seattle.

The new update, which bring's T-Mobile's HSPA+ network to a total of five markets, is part of a larger push on the part of the carrier to attract owners of iPhone devices. The carrier has been working for months now to make its network compatible with Apple's popular handset.
