Leak reveals cities that will be covered by T-Mobile's LTE on March 26th
Initially, there will be three LTE devices offered by the carrier. The Samsung GALAXY Note II received a software update last week that allows the device to have connectivity with T-Mobile's LTE signal. On March 26th, T-Mobile is expected to launch the BlackBerry Z10 which will also run over the operator's LTE pipeline. Also on March 26th. the T-Mobile Sonic 2.0 HotSpot will be released with LTE support. Somewhere down the road, a new version of the Samsung Galaxy S III is expected for T-Mobile with LTE support. That phone has already received FCC approval.

Great news!! I have been more than happy after dumping sprint and enjoying hspa speeds on my nexus 4 w/unlimited everything plan, LTE will just make it so much better. Thanks T-Mobile

Bye bye Sprint and your crappy LTE, WiMax, and 3G networks!

I was a Sprint customer and their network was not bad. I have good signal to noise ratio underground, in some semihardend buildings, fringes of the wilderness, and in the water along the coast of California. Their pricing was very good as well.

It'll be 2020 before T-Mobile ever thinks to put up more towers or anything to improve signal in most of Utah. :(

Actually TMO is doing a multi-billion dollar overhaul of the network over the next couple of years.

yeah i doubt there going to do anything with southern utah. I sell Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T and everyday I get more and more people who switch from t-mobile to Verizon because of the severe lack of coverage here. they consider it rural out here so they claim theres no money here but there are 110,000 people here and Im sure many would go to t-mobile if they could at least get 3g service.

Two s3's one with and one without lte? Retarded!

They might offer anyone who has the S3 a trade for the new one, and they'll probably discontinue the old one.

Intersting that San Jose is one of the cities for LTE launch versus San Francisco.

not something to be surprised of. San Jose is the heart of the silicon valley and it has a larger population compared to SF. There would for sure be more engineers and technicians living in SJ, and these ppl would need LTE more than SF ;)
