CDMA is always 2G, so you'll be on EDGE on T-Mobile.   (Sprint and Verizon tried to soup their old CDMA networks up, but its ultimately still 2G at the end of the day and can't support voice and data simultaneously.)   HSPA+ is in essence a hopped up GSM.   

T-Mobile is cannibalizing their 2G network to reallocate more spectrum for LTE.  I think you've got a year, but they've already pulled some of their 2G bandwidth and reallocated it.    Interestingly, in order to speed up their LTE network, Verizon is also cannibalizing their CDMA network starting next year and moving to Voice over LTE.
