Hello, hello what have we here? Thanks to an eagle-eyed TmoNews reader and his discovery of a job description through ATEC Wireless. This particular job for a LTE/Network Modernization Program Manager has one bullet point that really interests us:
Project manages all aspects of a large and complex LTE deployment project throughout the infrastructure and development project lifecycles including project scope, schedule, resources, quality, costs and change for both the Indianapolis, Ind and Cincinnati, Ohio TMobile markets.
So what does this mean? We know that T-Mobile has plans to launch their LTE network sometime in the middle of 2013, so our guess is that this position will help with the beginning stages of T-Mobile’s LTE network in the Indianapolis and Cincinnati markets. The start date of the job was set for April 15th with an end date of December 31st and unfortunately we have no way to know if the job has already been filled.
We hope that T-Mobile is getting an early start on their LTE build-out and maybe, just maybe we’ll get a surprise early next year with a sooner-than-expected rollout. Wishful thinking I hope.
