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.  If 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.
