T-Mobile was the last carrier to enable 4G LTE wireless data into service, but it looks like as of today, it’s not just limited to a few cities in a few states. According to Twitter and emails sent to many tech sites, there have been numerous sightings of LTE in Dallas, Denver, and Wichita. With this news, it looks like 4G LTE for T-Mobile is spreading fast.
T-Mobile itself is looking to cover 100 million POPs by summers end, and is limited to only seven official markets. Before today, it was only live in 9 different cities; Denver, Las Vegas, Kansas City, New Orleans, New York, Phoenix, San Diego, San Jose, and Seattle.
Verizon and AT&T were the first to the scene with 4G LTE. Now that T-Mobile is slowly making its rounds in major cities across America, they’ll likely find that more people may opt to switch to them based on their plans and coverage. The speeds we are seeing again appear to be averaging 25Mbps down and 8Mbps up with a 40ms latency, which is exactly what we saw before.
Although T-Mobile is the last major player to the ballgame of 4G LTE, we do expect a full rollout very soon, at which point you too, wherever you may live city-wise in the USA, will be able to join the 4G LTE crowd. As for the rest of you who live in rural areas, you can expect a rollout to almost all of you by mid 2014. At least according to T-Mobile. Add in their 4G LTE with a new UNcarrier plan and you’ll be set. A full list can be found below.
