T-Mobile now using AT&T iPhone-compatible 3G in some areas


There are quite a few people who enjoy using their iPhones on T-Mobile's network. Unfortunately, up until now, those people were stuck on the carrier's EDGE network, since both AT&T and T-Mobile 3G bands are different. But now, the latter company has switched on its 1900MHz spectrum, which means iPhones can now enjoy faster data speeds. 

If you live in Nevada, the Pacific Northwest, or Northern California, the new, speedy network should be live for you. Try it out and let us know how it goes in the comments. 

The biggest part of this story is obviously the fact that iPhone owners can now take advantage of T-Mobiles cheaper off-contract plans and still access 3G data (or in other words, data that's fast enough to make you not pull your eyeballs out). There's nothing worse, in my mind, than slow data connections, which is the main reason I haven't gone to T-Mobile with my iPhones yet. 

Well, that, and I don't live in any of those three areas. But if T-Mobile is anything like Verizon, new areas for this new network should pop up about every week and T-Mobile may just have itself at least one new customer.
