It was reported earlier that T-Mobile’s 4G LTE service was to roll out this month. The carrier has a special event planned for March 26, though it could be about a number of things, rumor has it that they’ll also announce the roll out of their 4G LTE service. The BlackBerry Z10 and Samsung Galaxy Note II have been announced as LTE compatible devices on their network. They’ll reportedly be adding Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy S4 as well in the near future.
A new report reveals that T-Mobile’s new 4G LTE network is currently being tested in 9 cities. These include New York, Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas, San Jose / Bay Area, San Diego, Seattle, and New Orleans. Tests revealed download speeds of up to 25Mbps and upload speeds up to 8Mbps. These speeds will come down obviously, because these tests have been conducted at a time when there’s a very light load on the network. Being the last national carrier in the US to launch LTE, its good to see T-Mobile upping its game. More details about this and T-Mobile’s new service plans expected at the March 26 event.
