T-Mobile has quietly updated its LTE network, adding official support in 14 new cities. The new markets range from mid-sized metro areas to smaller cities as T-Mobile continues expanding its LTE footprint.

T-Mobile-4G-LTE

Here are the new markets as listed by T-Mobile:

  1. Ocala, FL
  2. Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, FL
  3. Punta Gorda, FL
  4. The Villages, FL
  5. Valdosta, GA
  6. Coeur d'Alene, ID
  7. Twin Falls, ID
  8. Bay City, MI
  9. Holland, MI
  10. Saginaw, MI
  11. Gulfport-Biloxi, MS
  12. Las Cruces, NM
  13. Thomasville-Lexington, NC
  14. Olympia, WA

The carrier mostly has coverage in urban areas, but some of these markets are on the small side. T-Mobile's LTE network currently covers over 200 million people, and is about to get more robust with the just announced acquisition of block A spectrum from Verizon.

    Now in several cities I've never heard of! That's a good sign that they are expanding to much smaller markets now.

    Small markets are about the only time I run into coverage issues with T-Mobile.

  • turdbogls

    Sweet! out of all those, I visit or at least will benefit from 5 of those locations. Thanks T-Mobile.

  • Defenestratus

    I always love it when I see "The Villages" get LTE Service because, as anyone who lives in CFL knows, The Villages is a huge retirement community, and also happens to have the highest concentration of STD's in the state.

    All those retirees using LTE to get their porn on :P

      Haha this is exactly what I thought! T-Mobile will soon regret the unlimited data decision. :P

    • Rudy Belova

      Oh exactly. When they first launched 3g in tampa, my 3g died just north of town and i was on edge all the way to the Villages but once i got into town. Boom! 3g.. Before most of the country! i was like.. wtf???

    One day maybe Cincinnati??!!

    • Matthew Toomey

      They just announced they will cover Cincy with the new spectrum they just bought from VZW. May be a bit...

      • David Coleman

        Wow! Thank you for sharing that!

      • Wyatt Neal

        It's those bastards at Cincinnati Bell that are jackin' up the system. I think we've managed to cram more wireless carriers per captia with less wireless signal than any other city in the US /unsupported fact

        • Danny Lewis

          Tmobile needs to buy Cincinnati Bell because it will require new phones to take advantage of that new band they just acquired.

  • Patrick Moore

    Still no love for the capital of New Mexico, Santa Fe.

    • http://clintharvey.net/ scH

      or the capital of Iowa, Des Moines

      • Mesa

        All we can do now is basically beg mr CEO to implement LTE in the DSM area. Especially near 30th n Hickman

  • Chris

    Awesome. I just so happen to live in Central Florida.

  • Rudy Belova

    T-Mobile officially launching LTE = Been lit for a few weeks...

    • Danny Lewis

      They don't announce until a certain percentage of the area is up and running.

  • SenorQuesadilla

    CDA represent!

  • Aaron Miller

    Finally LTE in coeur d'Alene. Its actually almost becoming worth it!!

  • yankeesusa

    In the 2 months I have had tmobile I have seen improvements that have taken over 8 months for sprint. I am so glad I switched. Looking forward to tomorrow. I love it, Jon Legere crashed At&t ces party last night and got kicked out. Just more advertising for tmo.

    • nope

      Same here. I paid that 10 extra bucks with Sprint for over 3 years and never saw LTE or WiMax. Switched to T-Mobile, which everyone tells me sucks, and they have blazing fast LTE and HSPA+ everywhere I go, and for much cheaper.
