According to a number of reports, T-Mobile is finally – finally! – launching its 3G network in the US from today.
The 3G network will be switched on across 20 cities this year including Las Vegas and Los Angeles, with New York being the first to get the third-generation nod, and those hungry to test out the service will have a choice between four 3G handsets.
Given it’s taken T-Mobile ages to get this up and running, if this latest snippet about the switch-on is true, it sounds like madness: according to endaget, T-Mobile will launch its 3G network without data. Yep, 3G will be kept initially for voice, with EDGE acting as data carrier. Without data capabilities, this 3G rollout is looking like a dangerously damp squib.
