T-Mobile Expands 4G Network to 14 Markets

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.
