T-Mobile adds coverage

T-Mobile adds coverage

T-Mobile, the fourth-largest U.S. wireless provider and a 3G straggler, said it is aiming to build out its high-speed network by the end of next year and the beginning of 2007. Although the expansion is dependent on the carrier obtaining necessary spectrum through an auction, a T-Mobile executive told BetaNews that 3G testing is underway in some markets. The carrier is also increasing its coverage in the GSM 850 band, a move that is expected to boost service by 40 percent, with the most significant increases in the Midwest. Several roaming agreements have been signed with various operators, most notably Dobson Wireless, Cingular Wireless, and Western Wireless.
