T-Mobile today officially introduced its anticipated third-generation (3G) cellular service. Coming after company hints and unofficial tests, the network is now live in New York City and significantly improves both call quality and data access versus the current 2G network. Like other 3G services, T-Mobile's is seamless and allows supporting phones to automatically switch to 3G when they come within range.
I wonder what new phones they'll start selling with 3G capabilities...we'll see. Hopefully their rollout of 3G isn't lame like AT&T was/is with half-ass speeds and quality.

They already have roughly 4 phones for their 'specific' 3G network - you can thank the FCC & their lack of forsight in auction spectrum for that!
Many ppl have already purchased these 3G Ready phones for the past 2mths. GLAD they've finally rolled it out, but in just 1 city?! Thats just sad.

That was about time. The only downside is the crappy and rare 1700mhz band they use, instead of 850mhz or 1900mhz (both prperty of AT&T)
