Nothing to get your blood rushing like an LTE coverage announcement, right? T-Mobile's the culprit this morning, as the uncarrier just added a slew of cities to it official 4G LTE coverage list in a wide variety of regions. Without further ado, here they are, by state:

  • California: San Luis Obispo
  • Colorado: Silverthorne
  • Florida: Key West, Naples-Marco Island
  • Indiana: Evansville
  • Kentucky: Bowling Green, Elizabethtown, Frankfort
  • Louisiana: Baton Rouge
  • Massachusetts: Barnstable Town
  • Minnesota: Red Wing
  • Mississippi: Hattiesburg
  • Missouri: St. Joseph
  • Oregon: Bend
  • Pennsylvania: Allentown, Harrisburg, Lancaster, Reading, State College, Winchester
  • Washington: Bremerton, Port Angeles

While it certainly has some catching up to do as the last player to get into the LTE game, T-Mobile is moving quickly refarming that AWS spectrum across the country to get the job done. If you're in one of the newly-announced markets, you may have been seeing LTE for a while now, as carriers often wait to officially announce new LTE markets in groups, and not until the service in the area is finished testing.

    meanwhile still no Cincinnati ugh every other major city around us and some non major cities have it

    • Danny Lewis

      Yeah, I heard the wireless situation is sort of mess up in Cincinnati. I heard Cincinnati Bell was to blame.

      • Wyatt Neal

        Yea. Cincinnati Bell is like a minature Verizon in training. They've got all of the hard parts down like bullshit customer service, unorthodox update practices, shady contracts with companies to edge out other competition ... they just can't seem to figure out the "Have amazing service" bit.

        • Chris Hinds

          When it comes to wireless, Cincinnati Bell is horrendous but I be remiss not to give them kudos on their fiber optics roll out. Now if we could just get them to quit the phone game, we be in business.

          • Wyatt Neal

            Yea, they rolled out fiber to my neighborhood finally ... I've not been willing to drop off TWC yet though.

          • Chris Hinds

            Yeah I only did because they have an amazing student deal.
            Fioptics Internet-50MB & Fioptics Elite TV package with DVR for $94 after tax. Same thing on TWC would run almost $200.

          • Aberi

            PLEASE Dont do Fioptics that stuff is always down and poor customer service and just cant wait till my contract is over. Always get error message on my TV

    • Anthony

      T-Mobile shares AWS spectrum (which is where their LTE will be, in Band IV) with Cincinnati Bell in Cincinnati as well as two other very minor MVNOs. Because of this it's unlikely T-Mobile will ever be able to roll out LTE in Cincinnati because they're just too bandwidth strapped. Even if they do roll out LTE, it almost certainly won't be the 10MHz variety.

  • ronnie

    I wanna know when homestead fl will get it cuz im on fringe coverage according to metro & get alot of 2g,4g & some lte

  • Steve Belongie

    Please come to Wisconsin!

    • http://www.whattheschmidt.com/ Dustin

      Hey Steve. You are in luck sir! I know for a fact that T-Mo LTE is in Madison, WI right this second. I switched to T-Mo for the Nexus 5 after I found this out. I belieave its also in Milwaukee and one other city. I'd have to look it up to be certain though.

      • Autumn

        Both my roommate and I get LTE constantly in Milwaukee.

        • Chad Vincent

          And I still get no signal at all driving past the Dells on I-94.

          Luckily I only do that about 4-6 times a year.

  • David Hart

    Sweet 4G in Key West, now I can watch HD videos while out on the boat :D

  • enoch861

    And according to T-Mo News 20+20 is being turned on in a very few cities with speeds reaching 70Mbps.
    They're on a roll!

  • CerealFTW

    They need to add bountiful and centerville Utah to this list

    • Delusion_FTL

      The tower off 2600 and orchard has been upgraded which *is* bountiful, but nothing has been upgraded north of that except for farmington station.

      There are several towers in between, Reading Elementary, All the way east on center street in centerville next to the reservoir, Viewmont highschool stadium, the flagpole at eaglewood, and a couple others are all still dont have LTE.

      If they were to choose to do just one, I would have them pick viewmont since it's more in the middle.

      • CerealFTW

        That would be great. Here's a pic of viewmont I just took(from my kitchen). I would be so happy if they put one right there. Where are you located?

        • Delusion_FTL

          Wow, you must have good signal. Watch for them to put up some Ericsson Air panels and you'll know it's coming.

          Hope your house didn't blow over last night :-) It was quite windy.

          I am up further north in the Kaysville/Layton/Fruit Heights area

          • CerealFTW

            besides a bench, chairs and some trash cans blowing around it wasn't too bad. Most of the things that would blow away already did last year lol
            I have great signal but the fastest i get on HSPA+ is 5mpbs down. i get 27mbps in woods cross. Do you get LTE in your area?

          • Delusion_FTL

            Yes, I get LTE through most of this area. The tower behind the the 7-11 in kaysville and the tower at kaysville JR high, and by layton hills mall have all been upgraded. They have not done the tower by the smiths in farmington, nor the one on nichols road, or the i15 overpass by the rest area in kaysville.

          • Delusion_FTL

            Just as an update. They have upgraded the towers at nichols road in fruit heights, the tower at bountiful high school in bountiful, and the tower south of the woods cross exit on i15. I heard they have done the viewmont tower, but have not been able to verify. Do you know?

            thanks

            They have not done the tower at the elementary on the border of centerville/farmington, or the tower at the animal shelter next to the mountain in fruit heights.

          • CerealFTW

            They haven't done Viewmont yet. But I get one or two bars in my home now for around 2 months, so that's a start. Any idea of when they will upgrade at Viewmont? T-mobile guy on xda told me a few months ago that they will upgrade the whole Wasatch front this year(I think he said the first half of the year as well)

          • Delusion_FTL

            Any news on the Viewmont tower? I've seen a few other towers being touched.

          • CerealFTW

            Still nothing. But I do get 2-3 bars at home from all the other towers they've been putting up

  • Simon Belmont

    The T-Mobile LTE in my area is great. Super fast and good signal.

    I regularly clock 35 Mbps at my place. Go, T-Mobile.

  • Shamu

    still no love for solavei though

  • Guest

    Brace yourselves, 20+20 LTE incoming!

  • remister

    After this, please update the EDGE spots to at least 3G, thank you!

    • ChristianMcC

      It's been indicated that they, instead of adding more 3g/HSPA+ hardware, are upgrading towns that were previously just EDGE straight to LTE!

  • Danny Lewis

    Woo! T-Mo gettin' lucky in Kentucky! Please do Richmond next! ;)

  • thexfile

    My city isn't listed but branded t-mo phones get 4G.

  • http://omgdroid.com/ Tony Simons

    Still no love in Des Moines. Sucks to live in the corn fields sometimes....

    • viperz4

      waiting eagerly for LTE love to appear in Des Moines metro area!!

  • Guest

    It's getting closer! Though I'm stuck in an area about an hr in either direction between 2 LTE markets on EDGE :-/ . Who knows how long it'll take them to refarm my area and do the upgrade though...

  • qmarket

    T- Mobile is going boom... He is making very big competition...
