T-Mobile Doubles 3G Speed on Nexus One Launch Day

T-Mobile Doubles 3G Network Speed
T-Mobile is throwing down the gauntlet and making it clear that other carriers are going to have to start bringing their A-game. We already knew that the Nexus One, Google's new flagship Android device, would be available on T-Mobile for $179.99 with a two-year contract. And to accompany the launch of the new fancy phone on the block, the mighty T-Mob has upgraded its entire 3G network from 3.6Mbps to 7.2Mbps -- something AT&T doesn't expect to do until at least early 2012.

Of course, T-Mobile has a much, much, smaller network to update. But while venturing outside of major metropolitan areas may bring your T-Mobile downloads to dial-up like speeds, it also doesn't seem to suffer the same problems with dropped or failed calls that AT&T does. [From: Engadget]
