T-Mobile promised to have 4G LTE service available to its subscribers some time this month, with a report outing the company was testing its faster wireless service in nine cities. We assume those tests all went well as T-Mobile is announcing it has officially launched 4G LTE service across a number of major U.S. cities.
You could be experiencing 4G LTE service if you have a compatible device in the Baltimore, Houston, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Jose or Washington DC areas as those are the first major cities to receive 4G LTE. In total, T-Mobile expects to deliver 4G LTE service to 100 million people by the middle of 2013, doubling that number to 200 million people by the end of 2013.
If you live in one of the major cities T-Mobile announced will be receiving 4G LTE service and currently don’t own an iPhone, you could certainly kill two birds with one stone by picking up the iPhone 5 when it’s released on April 12. Not only will you finally have an iPhone on T-Mobile’s network, but you’ll also be ushered into the modern age where you can experience near broadband speeds from your mobile device.
