MetroPCS Begins Selling HSPA+ Phones

Posted by at 2:16 pm on June 14, 2013

MetroPCS today announced that it has initiated sales of HSPA+ based smartphones to its customers.

Earlier this week, it began accepting unlocked HSPA+ phones in several markets, including Boston, Hartford, and Dallas, and today announced that it is selling the LG L9 and Samsung Galaxy Exhibit, both of which also support its LTE 4G network.

The company is working to switch its CDMA-based customers over to GSM-based devices, which run on T-Mobile’s network rather that MetroPCS’ as it integrates the two. MetroPCS will begin selling an HSPA+ and LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy S III on June 17.

The company did not say when it expects to broaden the availability of these phones and the BYOD service beyond the first few markets.
