T-Mobile this afternoon said it had switched on its HSPA+ 3G access in several large cities. The 21Mbps access should be live in Boston, Miami, Fresno, Palm Springs, San Diego in California. Coverage should also be faster in Erie, Pennsylvania; Richmond, Virginia; Spokane, Washington; and Topeka, Kansas.

T-moible also announce that it now planned to double its HSPA+ speeds to 42Mbps sometime in 2011. It didn’t give an exact schedule.   T-mobile would use the technique where devices connect to two virtual carriers and ‘stack’ connections to reach the new speed.

HSPA+ is for now limited to modems and netbooks using T-Mobile’s 3G frequencies, but it plans to have a 14.4Mbps smartphone later this year in the T-Mobile G2.   The word on the street is the G2 will be for sale at T-mobile on September 29th.
