Galen20K (Posts: 545; Member since: 26 Dec 2008) I'm sure it's going to be the LTE-Advanced standard by then which 2013 is the year that other carriers should be rolling out LTE-Advanced at that same time so it makes sense. Different than regular LTE used today which is about be blown away by HSPA+. But yeah at that time(2013) thats when LTE-A will be introduced by all. Sounds like a good plan. posted on 20 Jan 2011, 07:26 3 3. Junior (Posts: 52; Member since: 09 Jun 2010) However, this article makes no mention of LTE-Advanced. It's stating that T-Mobile might be ready to roll out LTE to some extent by 2013. If LTE-Advanced is to become somewhat of a standard by then, like you mention, T-Mobile will yet again be behind the curve. As always. Also, by this time, most carriers will already be covering a majority of their customers … [Read more...] about Comments for : T-Mobile to roll out its LTE network in 2013?

T-Mobile finally has a strategy to move to LTE and the details of that work are starting to come out. T-Mobile has announced how it will begin building its LTE network, when the testing will begin, and what to expect as we move towards the planned 2013 launch. So far, it seems as though T-Mobile is getting a start, but it certainly has a long way to go. The official announcement starts by pointing to the deal we heard about last month with Ericsson and the Nokia Siemens Network, which will help T-Mobile build out its LTE network. The agreement will help T-Mobile modernize (aka add the 1900MHz spectrum to) 37,000 GSM/HSPA+ cell sites as well. This makes for a good start, until T-Mobile gets into the details a bit later. Apparently, the company has only "modernized" 400 GSM/HSPA+ cell sites so far (likely these are mostly sites around the Moscone Center in San Fran, so unlocked iPhones would get 3G on T-Mo at WWDC.) Still, T-Mo is working fast and expects to have 2,500 sites by … [Read more...] about T-Mobile says its LTE network is testing now, will launch next year
But the list of interesting bits of information revealed by this leaked T-Mobile roadmap continues. On February 20, T-Mobile might launch a new mobile hotspot device made by ZTE. The gadget itself isn't that exciting, but what's clearly worth noting is that it runs on LTE. Therefore, we can rest assured that the T-Mobile LTE network should be operational in a matter of weeks, just like Neville Ray, CFO at T-Mobile, promised us days ago. Next up we have the date, on which T-Mobile is expected to switch to all Value Plans and ditch is Classic Plan offerings – March 17. That's also when a new international plan with included talk time and data may be announced, although currently we don't know any details about it. Further down the list we have the Samsung Codina, which is a mysterious smartphone scheduled to launch on March 27. Interestingly, that's the codename for the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2, yet we doubt that T-Mobile wants to launch a 1-year-old handset on its … [Read more...] about T-Mobile roadmap reveals BlackBerry Z10 release date, confirms timely LTE network launch
We knew this was coming and here it is - users from a number of US markets are reporting that they can now access the LTE network of T-Mobile. It looks like the carrier couldn't wait until its own official announcement that's expected to happen in less than an hour from now.According to these early reports, T-Mobile has activated its LTE in Phoenix, Arizona, San Jose, California and Huston, Texas, but there may be more coming.A few days ago, users of the OpenSignal application, which is a crowd-sourced Android app that detect wireless signal coverage, reported that T-Mobile's LTE network is detectable in a number of cities, including Denver, Las Vegas, Kansas City, New Orleans, New York, San Diego, San Jose, and Seattle. This should serve as an indication about the areas where T-Mobile's LTE should go live very soon.If you want to be among the first to know what's going on at T-Mobile's so-called UNcarrier event, and whether or not it's going to launch the iPhone 5, be sure to read our … [Read more...] about T-Mobile launches its LTE network prior to announcement
We often talk about about how fast 4G LTE connection speeds are, and how in some cases they are even faster than our home Internet, but there is one other key aspect of a network speed that we discuss rarely. We’re talking about network latency: the time it takes a network to transfer a packet from the source to the receiver. Simply put, the lower the latency, the better your Internet experience. While this matters in all sorts of scenarios (you’d notice how fast a page loads in your browser), it’s actually crucial in situations like video conferencing and gaming . 4G LTE itself is a technology that comes with the benefit of much lower latencies over traditional 3G connections, but there are differences between different carriers’ 4G networks. FierceWireless and OpenSignal have partnered to show exactly what those differences are, and to ultimately give us real-world speed data to know which carrier has the fastest network. Keep in mind that the data … [Read more...] about Carrier 3G/4G LTE network latency research compares Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile
