T-Mobile’s LTE service has been detected in 8 new locations today, according to PCMag. OpenSignal, a crowd sourced Android app, has reported that LTE is now functioning in Denver, Las Vegas, Kansas City, New York, New Orleans, San Diego, San Jose and Seattle. T-Mobile has declared it would roll out LTE service, but without details as to where and when. Since the service is now functioning in these areas, we can assume that they will be included in the initial LTE rollout.
According to OpenSignal, the speeds detected were 25Mbps downloads and 8Mbps uploads. These numbers aren’t amazingly impressive, but we may see speeds change when T-Mobile’s LTE is officially rolled out.
T-Mobile is currently the last of the big telecoms to roll out LTE service, and has recently been approved to merge with MetroPCS. T-Mobile is planning a press event on March 26, where it is expected to detail their upcoming pre-paid plans.
