T-Mobile added a new modem and new coverage for its HSPA+ service today.

The webConnect Rocket 2.0 is considerably sleeker than the original and adds a swiveling USB connector that can fit into tight spaces. It also now has Mac support from the start, which is nice improvement from the past, and can provide both Macs and Windows PCs with microSDHC storage.

T-mobile did not have pricing or ship dates but promises these in coming weeks.

“T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network now offers 4G speeds to more people than any other wireless network in the country,” said Neville Ray, chief network officer for T-Mobile USA. “The aggressive pace of our HSPA+ network rollout means our customers can enjoy a better mobile broadband experience on more devices in more places today-”but we’re not done yet. Our first HSPA+ smartphone is coming soon and our footprint will double between now and the end of the year.”

T-Mobile also said it plans to launch its first HSPA+ smartphone, but gave no details.
