Verizon isn’t the only LTE provider around as MetroPCS has also announced the launch of its 4G LTE network. The network will cover San Francisco and surrounding areas, joining Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Detroit and Dallas/Fort Worth to be covered by MetroPCS’ LTE network. MetroPCS is also planning to expand its 4G services to cover Atlanta, Boston, Jacksonville, Miami, New York, Orlando, Sacramento and Tampa between December and early 2011. If you want to enjoy the LTE speeds, the company only has one LTE-compatible phone at the moment, the Samsung Craft that is available for $299 off contract. The carrier offers a $55 4G plan that includes unlimited nationwide calling, text messaging, picture messaging and 4G data and also a $60 plan that adds unlimited on demand video.
