T-Mobile has provided a bit of a status update in terms of their 4G LTE network. It looks like T-Mobile LTE is now available for 180 million people across 154 markets. Of course, this is in addition to the HSPA+ availability which is now available for more than 228 million people.
In comparison, back in July the 4G LTE coverage was available for 157 million people and across 116 markets. Simply put, it looks like T-Mobile has been making some progress in terms of the LTE rollout. More to the point, it looks like they are making progress towards the end of year goal which was also announced back in July.
At that time T-Mobile had said they were looking to have 4G LTE coverage available for more than 200 million people across 200 markets by the end of 2013. There is still some ways to go before they reach that goal — namely 20 million more people and 46 additional markets. But again, it looks like they are on track to make it happen.
Otherwise, T-Mobile appears to moving forward with the UNCarrier approach and has been added new handsets on a fairly regular basis. The LG G2 arrived this week as well did the Moto X. Though, the Moto X is only available direct from Motorola at the moment.
T-Mobile will also have the Galaxy Note 3 smartphone and Galaxy Gear smartwatch available in early-October and recently began making some changes to the hotspot allowances for unlimited data customers. And nicely done, those changes were positive for the customer — higher data allowances.
