    I can't believe T-Mo just got 3G installed for Raleigh. That's crazy!

    I'm near Raleigh. TMo was first with 3G here for a few years.

    They've just got the AT&T 3G bands installed for Raleigh. TMO never released the 9000. This is a result of the failed death star TMO merger. TMO has up to 42 mbps on their own bands in Raleigh and have had 3G for years there as well.

    I am on Tmo in the Phoenix area, and always seem to have a Rogers device so I was always stuck on EDGE. Now I get 3G too, thanks to their expansion of towers or whatever. Makes me a happy girl to finally be able to use my phone properly when away from my wifi!

    I wonder if its because of the upcoming new blackberry devices they will be offering.

    Not really. It was a condition of the failed merger, that AT&T transfer some of their 1900 MHz spectrum to T-Mobile, and a bunch of cash to Deutsche Telekom (TMO's parent company.)

    Yes, they do.
    They actually transferred AWS spectrum in the 1700 MHz band. T-mobile is refarming their 1900 MHz spectrum that they ran GSM in before to support HSPA+. In the 1700 MHz they will support both HSPA+ and LTE. This will allow AT&T phones that have HSPA+ in the 1900 MHz range to run on T-mo if they are unlocked.

    I always thought they transferred 1900 mHz spectrum. Didn't know they owned any AWS spectrum. Regardless, I like the awesome implications: a minimum of 3G speeds for customers, and possibly a larger 3G network than T-Mobile ever had on AWS (if ALL of the 2G spectrum gets refarmed.)

    Well, just did a deal with Lucky736 on CB MarketPlace with fingers crossed that the refarm was ongoing here and low and behold....
