For the most recent info, check out the 2010 T-Mobile 3G Coverage Review
In our previous T-Mobile coverage review, mobile broadband coverage was just a twinkle in T-Mobile’s eye. Now, they cover 30 major markets (about 100-120 cities) with plans to double the population covered by its 3G network in 2009.
