T-Mobile Expands 4G Network to 14 Markets

By - Source: T-Mobile | B 7 comments

Fourth largest U.S. carrier now covers 37 cities.

T-Mobile has unveiled its plan to expand the carrier's 4G coverage (1,900MHz band) into 14 new markets, bringing its total reach to 37 cities.

The fourth largest U.S. carrier also announced a partnership with Solavei, a non-contract carrier that resells T-Mobile's service, as well as the iPhone. Consumers who sign up with the latter in any of T-Mobile's 4G markets can purchase the iPhone and sign onto an unlimited talk, text and data plan for $49 a month.

Customers will also be able to transfer an existing AT&T iPhone to Solavei, which would ultimately mean they're migrating to T-Mobile's network. The carrier is encouraging AT&T customers to bring their unlocked phone and join them instead.

T-Mobile's 4G regions are: New York City, Newark, Boston, Philadelphia, Detroit, Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, Tampa, Baltimore, Houston, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Seattle, Minneapolis, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Diego, Central and Southern Arizona, the San Francisco Bay Area, California's Central Valley and South Florida.

The carrier had recently announced an agreement with Apple to offer the iPhone to its 33 million subscribers.

    Makes sense now why Carly rides a helicopter instead of a motorbike. Needs to cover more ground.

    T-Mobile still doesn't have 3G in my area despite the fact that Verizon already has 4G LTE here, and Sprint will soon. Their $30 a month, no contract, 100 minute, unlimited data and texting plan is an amazing deal, but I wouldn't even consider switching to T-Mobile until they can at least pull off 3G here.

    Go TMo! Sadly ATT got my business this go around, but hopefully on the next time they will have some better offerings in my area.

    Isn't Tmobile on the 1700Mhz band?

    Yes, they are on the 1700MHz band but also on the 1900MHz band.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-Mobile_USA
    They have HSPA on 1700MHz and 1900MHz and LTE on 1700MHz only. However, the article doesn't mention anything about LTE or HSPA but since it does mention it will be on the 1900MHz that would mean HSPA service. And their LTE service doesn't even begin until next year anyway.

    Yup, take her too long to get across all those huge gaps in coverage on a motorcycle.

    Keep away from T-mobile. We've been customers for 9 years, and made a stupid mistake in trusting their lies about Iphone. Our contract is about to expire, and yes - lets get Iphones - finally a decent device.
    So, instead of waving them good-bye and going with ATT, We've just got into the trap: loud WEb announcements of 4G by T-mobile + the rep at the store said: sure, go get an unlocked Iphone, it will work just fine.
    We live in Dedham, MA. Getting only Edge, and of weak strength. The same in all surrounding towns: Westwood, Norwood, Canton. No way to check your E-mail on the road.
    Next day after the agreement signed we spent 2 hrs on the phone with Customer Care. Totally wasted time - except that they got paid for this mocking discussion. "We have 1 million Iphones in many cities, such as Baltimore, Memphis, you name it"
    "In 3-4 months we'll have your service improved". But how can we trust them if our town is already on the list ready for 4G, and it is complete lies?
    Customer, beware - never trust a corporation.
    A customer care women connected us to their laywer - to give us options, as she explained. Complete mockery: Oh, valuable customer, oh we could help you to return Iphones to the Apple store.
    We are so mad, almost ready to pay $600 fine to forget about these sharks.
    But what can we do - in the end they always win.
    We can only warn other people: keep away from T-mobile!
