Where to Look for T-Mobile LTE First


Earlier this week we got news of T-Mobile finally getting ready to flip the switch and join the LTE party. By the end of the month, it should be offering LTE service… somewhere, but where? Well, we knew it had been testing LTE in Kansas City and Las Vegas, so one of those two are likely candidates for where it could first go public, but now some new info has come in to help reveal the full picture of T-Mobile’s roll-out of LTE.

OpenSignal has been watching the airwaves, and caught wind of T-Mobile LTE under testing in a number of additional markets, including Seattle, Denver, New Orleans, New York City, San Diego, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

It also has some early indication of what kind of speeds T-Mobile LTE might provide, and it’s looking like 25Mbps down / 8Mbps up could be par for the course.

T-Mobile has already started activating LTE abilities for its Galaxy Note II, and more LTE-supporting models are on their way to its lineup.

Update: Ooh, now for the good stuff – an internal leak. As you can see below, this T-Mobile document offers a slightly different list of launch cities, as well as the all important date when this will finally go live: March 26.
