Today, they've announced the availability of their LTE network in four additional new markets that include Atlanta, GA; Jacksonville, FL; Miami, FL; and Orlando, FL. Naturally, it goes to show that they intend to go toe-to-toe in this increasingly competitive market, but they still only offer one LTE enabled handset – which is the Samsung Craft. However, we've seen photos of the Samsung Forte SCH-R910 which is gearing up to be a respectable Android powered smartphone that'll hopefully flaunt the Galaxy S brand.
As it stands right now, MetroPCS has a total of 13 markets covered with their LTE network and we'll hopefully see more light up in the coming year.

Ok so I've tested both and Speedtest gave sprint 6mb/s while my indulge gets an average of 3mb/s. Still, more than what I get from my clear mobile hotspo which is about 1.3 mb/s (at the adress where i get 3mb/s from the indulge) so i'm extremely satisfied with my phone especially since im getting unlimited calls/texts and 500mb of 4G for 35 bucks a month!!! ( im on a family plan) of couse as soon as I can make my phone into a hotspot Ill get the unlimited data for $55

Haha even Metro is doing better than T-mobile! Poor T-mo, thinks HSPA+ is 4G. And now AT&T is doing it. At least AT&T and other carriers are upgrading to LTE.

t-mobile is actually the best(currently), and hspa+ is now considered 4g do your research +plus their "14"mbps(ppl usually get 6mbps) speeds are going to be upgraded to at least 28 mps(http://www.phonearena.com/news/T-Mobile-officially-announces-doubling-its-4G-network-speed-to-42 Mbps-in-2011_id15780) faster than verizons lte(16 mbps, but average is 8mbps) and + tmobile is also going to be running LTE(http://www.phonearena.com/news/T-Mobile-to-offer-budget-friendly-data-plans-and-smartphones-LTE- after-2014_id16132) just like at&t a hspa+/LTE hybrid network. so yeah do ur research be4 posting ur stupid hate lies.
