T-Mobile activated its nascent 3G network in another city Wednesday.

Las Vegas now joins New York City as the only two locales to get 3G service. T-Mobile is promising that it will switch on its wireless broadband network in up to 20 more markets by the end of this year, but the carrier has not announced further details. We're hoping San Francisco gets service soon and that T-Mobile rolls out more 3G-capable phones.

Also in T-Mobile news, the carrier announced Wednesday that its Family Allowances program is now available.
