For all of you T-Mobile users who are eagerly awaiting 4G to arrive, don’t hold your breath.  Rene Obermann, CEO of T-Mobile USA’s parent company, Deutsche Telekom, stated that there are currently no plans for building a 4G network in the US for at least 2 years.   Obermann instead affirmed that, “With HSPA+ we’re in a very good position. We still have plenty of capacity, so we are competitive.” It seems as if the T-Mobile brass are satisfied with their current 3G offerings, and are not overly concerned about competing with early US 4G adopters like Sprint, at least not right away.  For now, the most T-Mobile customers can expect is continuous upgrades to the existing 3G network, which is reported to be hitting speeds of up to 42 Mbps sometime in 2011.
