Another Group Of LTE Sightings This Morning As Emails Pour In From Dallas, Denver And More

Screen Shot 2013-06-13 at 9.05.50 AM

Chalk up another group of early LTE sightings this morning as emails have poured in from the Dallas and Denver areas. According to this new group of sightings, LTE is also coming alive in Wichita, Kansas and Indianapolis. This group of markets comes around a week after our latest group of sightings in Boston, Dayton/Akron, Ohio, San Diego, Anaheim, Fresno and across San Bernardino county.

With T-Mobile’s goal for 100 million POPs covered before summer’s end still only limited to seven official markets, I expect some sort of announcement in the near future.

Now for the public service reminder that I’ve offered in these LTE sighting posts: “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.”

Let’s recap the list we have for May and June LTE market launches:

  • Atlanta and Sandy Springs, Marietta,
  • Austin and Round Rock, San Antonio, 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)

        On Rt. 72 & Barrington Rd. I was just driving to Woodfield and had solid LTE by Rt 72 & Rt 58. However, I had to put my phone on airplane mode and toggle it back off in order to get LTE. No LTE by Woodfield though.

  • boricua68

    Dallas, Texas has LTE went live on the 6/12. Avg of 25 Mbps down and 12 Mbps up. I think TMO still working some kinks of the system since every once in a while my Iphone drops back to 4G HSPA+ 42. I am very happy with what I am seeing thus far! Keep up the good work TMO!!

    SEATTLE! And the call quality!! its a thousand times better! what did they do!?!

    • an0nim0

      Nothing; calls still go over UMTS (and/or EDGE).

      If you’ve got an HD Voice-capable device, and you call another HD Voice-capable device on T-Mobile’s UMTS network, then you’ll get a doubling of sampling rate – but I’ve found compression artifacts to be worse on those calls, especially with middling signal strength/quality.
