T-Mobile 3G at least 2 years off

T-Mobile USA CEO Robert Dotson yesterday went on record saying that while T-Mobile will build a UTMS (3G) network, he does not see that happening in the next two years. Mr. Dotson also noted that T-Mobile has a $2.64 billion budget for buying additional spectrum, something the company must purchase before 3G can even be on the radar screen. T-Mobile should also start to launch EDGE in select markets starting next year.
