Does either Ipad 3 work on T-mobile?

I have been looking at the specs for the new ipad and it says that it has worldwide 3g. Does this mean that it will work on tmobile USA 3g or 4g? Thanks in advance!

T-Mobile could work but at Edge (2G) speeds only. Their "4G" is incompatible although they are starting to roll out 1900MHz service (which could be compatible) but I have no idea how widespread that is.

T-mobile doesn't have LTE yet so no word on that until 2013. Also 3G is incompatible with both the AT&T and Verizon versions of the iPad. The 2012 iPad will work on T-mobile with EDGE speed which isn't too shabby.

T-Mobile is working on upgrading HSPA+ to 1900MhZ they already have it in a few cities and from what I have been hearing, it should start rolling out in all markets by the third quarter of this year.
