25 T Mobile logoT-Mobile subscribers, if you’re jealous of your friends or family that get access to either AT&T or Verizon’s 4G LTE network, well you’re in luck as the carrier revealed their plans to launch a 4G LTE network of their own in 2013, which means that you guys will have to settle for T-Mobile’s “4G” HSPA+ network until then.

This was announced during the carrier’s earnings call which showed some pretty disappointing figures, along with what appears to be a loss of 800,000 subscribers. With that reality check, the carrier announced that “T-Mobile USA is reinvigorating its challenger strategy, which includes a major network modernization plan to launch LTE in 2013.” In a way T-Mobile should be thanking AT&T for the spectrum that was given to them as compensation over the failed AT&T/T-Mobile merger.

No specific timeframe was given, which means that it could be launched early 2013, or late 2013, but either way it makes T-Mobile the last of the four major carriers to launch a 4G LTE network of their own, but still an upgrade that subscribers can look forward to.
