T-Mobile Has LTE in 91 of the Top 100 Metro Markets

Posted by at 1:16 pm on October 10, 2013

T-Mobile today said that LTE 4G can be accessed by 202 million people in 233 markets around the U.S., including 91 of the top 100 metro areas.

T-Mobile said it has met its original goal of covering 200 million pops by the end of the year months ahead of schedule. T-Mobile also offers HSPA+ across much of its network. Despite reaching its LTE deployment goal for 2013 early, the company said it is not done. The company runs its network on 10/10MHz channels in most markets, but will begin doubling that to 20/20MHz next year. This will improve capacity on its network. T-Mobile’s LTE footprint doesn’t quite match those of its two largest competitors, Verizon Wireless and AT&T, though. Verizon’s network covers 300 million people across more than 500 markets, and AT&T’s covers 240 million in 437 markets.

T-Mobile did not say if or how it plans to increase the footprint of its coverage in the U.S.
