T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray said that T-Mobile’s 4G LTE Network will be available, in some major markets, in a week or 2.. “Markets such as Las Vegas are pretty ready, and we were trying to get Vegas launched for CES. Another week or two and we’ll be there,” Raid said.
Las Vegas will be the first LTE city for T-Mobile, and more cities will follow the launch coming in Q1 and Q2. T-Mobile will plan to cover 100 million people with LTE by the end of Q2 and 200 million by the end of the year, if the merge with MetroPCS goes through.
There are already some phones capable of running on LTE, like the New Samsung Galaxy Note 2 ( needs a software update) and the upcoming new version of the Samsung Galaxy S 3. Ray didn’t say whether T-Mobile’s upcoming iPhone would support LTE, though.
Now we have to wait to try and test the new T-Mobile’s LTE network.
