T-Mobile is the last of the major four carriers not to have LTE, but that could change any day now. T-Mobile CTO Neville says that the LTE network will launch in Las Vegas first, with the second market being Kansas City. This is similar to their rollout of HSPA+, where they started in that same order. If they continue to follow that pattern, we could see Baltimore, Houston, and Washington D.C. rocking LTE speeds soon.
While Sprint launched its LTE network recently, it’s still very young. T-Mobile’s ambitious plans should cover a whole 200 million people by the end of the year, with 100 million being their goal by the middle. With this kind of schedule, they could very well catch up if not overtake Sprint.
