T-Mobile has opened up additional services to enable unlocked iPhone handsets to utilize their networks. The telecom giant has actually opened up their network in Washington D.C., Baltimore and Houston to name a few.
According to a blog post on T-Mobile’s website, where Chief Technology Officer Neville Ray stated that…
“Our internal tests of unlocked iPhone 4S devices running over 4G (HSPA+) on our 1900 network recorded on average 70% faster download speeds than iPhone 4S devices on AT&’s network,”
T-Mobile is also ramping up their output of nano-cards for iPhone 5s, so users who want to get out of the contract bid and take part in some contract-free phoning will be able to do so.
T-Mobile is one of few large telecom carriers who does not carry iPhone 5 handsets, meaning that the only way to use their service is to get an unlocked iPhone from Apple and use it on T-Mobile’s service if the network is available in your neck of the woods.
For now, T-Mobile has launched support for their iPhone-ready HSPA+ network in Baltimore, Houston, Kansas City, Las Vegas and Washington D.C.
