Cricket to offer LTE after signing a roaming agreement with Lightsquared
Cricket Wireless, one of the smallerCDMA carriers offering low-budget and contract-free plans, shookhands with wireless broadband provider LightSquared over an agreementthat will allow it to deliver 4G LTE service. The roaming agreementwill be valid over the next few year and will complement thecarrier's existing data network.
The agreement will definitely be ofbenefit to both parties as the massive investment required fordeploying such a network could hardly be matched by the humblepossibilities of the carrier. Just recently, MetroPCS's Samsung Galaxy Indulge, a Samsung Galaxy S of a kind, was announced for Cricket,bringing all of last year's Android power to the carrier. But with the LTE announcement, we look forward to hearing more about 4G-capable phonescoming to Cricket, so stay tuned.
