Have you heard that T-Mobile is working on an LTE network? It's true. According to an interview with the carrier's USA EVP and CTO Neville Ray over on FierceWireless, the company is "days away" from flipping the switch on its new towers. The initial rollout will take place in Las Vegas (where T-Mo had hoped to debut in time for CES, but was delayed), followed closely by Kansas City.
The carrier intends to follow a similar rollout plan as its initial HSPA+ expansion. The first round of cities included Baltimore, Houston, and Washington D.C., followed by others like Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Portland and many more.
We can't confirm that every city will see the sweet LTE airwaves flow in the same order, but it sounds like the company aims to be aggressive with the rollout. T-Mobile claims that it will cover 100 million people by the middle of the year, culminating in 200 million by the end of 2013. Such an accomplishment would certainly be impressive, but we'll have to wait and see how well the carrier keeps to its schedule. Or if it can secure enough spectrum to support that much data throughput.
