T-Mobile has announced that it will begin rolling out its LTE network before the end of this month.
The company has been working on modernizing its coverage and developing the needed infrastructure to make the move to LTE. So far, T-Mobile says LTE is ready to go in both Las Vegas and Kansas City – all that’s needed to flip the switch.
T-Mobile has promised to bring LTE to over 200 million people be the end of this year and said the upgrade to LTE should benefit all of its customers, whether or not they have LTE enabled devices. Currently, T-Mobile devices run on the company’s HSPA+ 42 network.
In order to take full advantage of the LTE connectivity, users will need to purchase devices that support LTE. T-Mobile announced an update for the Galaxy Note II that will support LTE connectivity, while new devices coming this year, namely the BlackBerry Z10, Samsung Galaxy S4, and possibly an updated version of the Galaxy S III, will also support the LTE connectivity.
