T-Mobile LogoT-Mobile has offered some details about its LTE network. To start, it has expanded its LTE service footprint to cover 260 million POPs — an increase of 10 million POPs over the last two months. T-Mobile also said it has begun deploying LTE on its 700MHz spectrum holdings. T-Mobile customers in several markets, including Cleveland, Colorado Springs, Minneapolis, and Washington, D.C., can access LTE on 700MHz with properly equipped devices.

The 700MHz coverage joins T-Mobile’s AWS coverage, and provides better in-building coverage and capacity. T-Mobile says its 700MHz spectrum covers 190 million POPs around the country. T-Mobile didn’t say how long it will take to light up LTE covering those 190 million POPs. Further, T-Mobile CEO John Legere said it will replace all its GSM/EDGE coverage with LTE across its AWS and PCS spectrum where it remains.

T-Mobile aims to complete replacing GSM/EDGE with LTE by next year.
