T-Mobile's Samsung GALAXY Note II could receive update to turn on LTE support
OTA firmware update for the Samsung GALAXY Note II might be in the works. The update would turn on the LTE radio inside the phablet and let those T-Mobile customers lucky enough to be in an LTE covered area to use the service. While the executive didn't mention when this update would come, he did say that some AT&T LTE phones will work on the T-Mobile LTE network.
One thing that the CTO didn't mention was whether the upcoming version of the Apple iPhone for T-Mobile would support LTE. The most current model of Apple's iconic smartphone, the Apple iPhone 5, is the first in the series to be LTE enabled.

You lucky Americans we don't have LTE just 4G.
That's nice of Samsung.

HSPA+(high speed packet access)is 4g.Not LTE. Tmo nevered marketed it as LTE.Their is just as fast as Verizon's and faster a lil bit than ATT

Honestly with this news the Note 2 pretty much is the perfect phone. This is my first contract phone in over 4 years and I actually don't feel "jailed" to it for 20 months. I had the international Note 1 and its flaws (e.g. low speaker & earpiece volume) really left me unsatisfied. But I'm so happy with my Note 2 I might not need Phonearena anymore... jk I still love reading up on the new stuff.
