MetroPCS LTE network will go live in September - says Samsung

Even though the 4G race commenced with Sprint as they heralded the new era with the launch of the nation's first 4G smartphone, the HTC EVO 4G, MetroPCS is getting closer to having their LTE network up and running. Samsung's vice president of systems research and development, Jaebeom Choi, said that MetroPCS would launch their LTE network in the Las Vegas and Dallas markets first. The Samsung executive went on to say that the big time prepaid wireless carrier would have their LTE network ready to launch in September. At this point, the Samsung Craft will be the initial offering from the carrier – it may not be the flashiest device to launch a next generation network, but it'll still showcase the kind of speeds LTE will be capable of achieving.

I will give a heads up and cheers to metro if Vegas and Dallas coverage is more than 20 square miles each. If it is less than that than outside of those 2 cities does anyone really care?
