T-Mobile LTE Sightings Abundant In The Los Angeles Area Today

T-Mobile’s next set of LTE network launches continues to get fine-tuned with the latest group of reports pointing to Los Angeles. According to sightings coming in via @tmonews Twitter, Facebook and my inbox Los Angeles area sightings are happening en masse. As with last weeks sightings in Minneapolis, New York City and Detroit we’re still calling this as “fine-tuning” and testing” but customers can still latch on to the LTE network. Los Angeles is scheduled for a late-May, early June launch with the rollout happening over a few weeks.

Now for the public service reminder that I offered in the post last week: “I wouldn’t jump too far ahead and assume that a LTE sighting means an entire market is live. For the moment, we’re just happy things are progressing and that more markets appear on the horizon.”

Recapping our current intel on the May/June LTE market launches:

In May we’re looking at Austin, Texas; Honolulu, Hawaii; Minneapolis and St Paul, Minnesota; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Sacramento, California; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; San Francisco and part of the Los Angeles areas both of which will also be spread into June.

The June list of launches is a little longer and includes the continuation of the San Francisco and Los Angeles area build-outs. As we wrote a few days ago, it appears as though two dozen markets will launch sometime during the month of June but here’s a list of the tentative markets so far. Anticipated May launch markets are indicated in parentheses.

  • Atlanta and Sandy Springs, Marietta, San Antonio
  • Austin and Round Rock, San Marcos (May Launch)
  • Part of the Carolinas – Charlotte, Rock Hill
  • Chicago and Joliet, Naperville
  • Cincinnati and Dayton
  • Cleveland
  • Connecticut – Bridgeport, Stamford, Norwalk
  • Columbus and Mentor
  • Dallas and Fort Worth, Arlington
  • Denver and Aurora, Broomfield
  • Detroit and Warren
  • Honolulu and Maui (May Launch)
  • Long Island, New York and New Jersey – specific areas unknown
  • Los Angeles and Pasadena, West Covina, West LA, Metro LA, Burbank, Beverly Hills
  • Oklahoma City
  • Orlando
  • Miami and Fort Lauderdale
  • Minneapolis and St Paul, Bloomington (May Launch)
  • New England – Boston, Cambridge
  • Philadelphia and Camden, Wilmington (May Launch)
  • Sacramento and Arden, Arcade, Roseville, Fresno
  • San Diego and Carlsbad, San Marcos
  • San Francisco and Oakland

    I’m in a pickle. I’ve had Verizon (didn’t like the cdma limitations with call waiting/no surf and talk, etc but phone service perfect) att i just dislike but it worked ok. Love TMO have unlimited data and i don’t have to worry about it, i’d even pay MORE than $70/month to have this feature. LTE is coming along in LA and i’m seeing it BUT i drop to edge even on the TMO iPhone 5 at home, get 1 bar and company wide TMO is out of the cell boosters for months. I took a road trip to San Francisco from LA and edge about 90% of the trip, never had this with att or Verizon, perhaps TMO isn’t ready for prime time and i just jump and return when they get their crap together, agree? Was really rooting for tmo, but some of these issues are very frustrating.
