T-Mobile Adds 4G Network to New Cities

Back in February T-Mobile announced that they would be going the LTE route after their failed acquisition by AT&T and that they would also be skipping right over the 84 Mbps HSPA+ network. While we have yet to hear more information about T-Mobile LTE, a Q&A session with Neville Ray, Chief Technology Officer of T-Mobile gave us some insight on that fact that they will be expanding their current 4G network by adding new cities and expanding in others. They include:

  • Abilene, TX,
  • Amarillo, TX,
  • Odessa, TX,
  • Victoria, TX,
  • Bakersfield, CA,
  • Eau Claire, WI,
  • Joplin, MO,
  • St. Joseph, MO.
Mr. Ray also took the time to solidify their decision to go with LTE over 84 Mbps HSPA+ and explain that their 2G coverage would still remain strong. So while we have yet to see more news about T-Mobile’s newest network it’s nice to see that they are still implementing more coverage on their current network. ┬áIf you are in any of these places look for faster speeds on your devices. If you don’t own one maybe it’s time to check out a new device like the Blaze 4G or HTC One S.
