Hello Again With Another Round Of LTE Sightings From Across The Country

Screen Shot 2013-06-17 at 5.33.47 PM

It’s another day in T-Mobile land and you know what that means, another group of LTE sightings. With yesterday’s activity, T-Mobile’s LTE network is clearly stepping into another gear as these sightings are steadily coming in from every geographic area we’ve posted. This morning the honor goes to Atlanta, Georgia; Birmingham, Alabama; multiple cities in Puerto Rico, Orlando/Kissimmee, Florida; Salem, North Carolina and Cleveland, Ohio. I should also throw Pittsburgh in as a few sightings have also come my way in the last 24 hours.

I expect an announcement any day now from T-Mobile as there have been far too many sightings to completely ignore that at least some of these cities are perhaps soft launched. With the window for T-Mobile to hit their promised 100 million POPs covered by summers end narrowly approaching, someone, somewhere must be crafting an announcement. At least, I hope someone, somewhere is doing exactly that.

Now for the public service reminder that I continually offer 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.”

Are you seeing LTE on your smartphone today?

      Cool! A T-Mo store associate said they were testing it back in late March (when I switched from prepaid to post-paid). What sucks is that I have a Nexus 4. :( Do you have a screenshot of this and the area you saw it in?

      • Antonio Francis

        i dont right now as im using a basic phone right now cuz i broke my other one.. but i can get some from my friend.. i know that man-o-war and richmond road and down toward hamburg has it. they are also refarming the area because the at&t phone im using now is a few years old and 3g is on it now.
        Red Mile and South broadway area has it also

          That’s shocking that T-mo is giving Kentucky some love. I wish I could at least stay on Edge when traveling between Lexington and Richmond.

        • Antonio Francis

    Most of Wilmington down through New Castle and Newark, Delaware is now covered and also running full speed. I’ve noticed dramatic increases in speed over the last few days.

  • Joshua Suits

    Charlotte is seeing LTE, with two bars was able to get 28.22 Mbps down and 8.17 Mbps up on a Nexus 4

  • Bill Techert

    Been on Edge forever and three miles up the road is 4G. Been with TM since the Suncom takeover. Come on TM, we need towers out here to.

    Today I mapped out more of the Union City/West New York/North Bergen area in North jersey to try to pinpoint where LTE is live. Its not 100% accurate but you can kind of see where it begins and ends, particularly when I was coming home I noticed that LTE on Bergenline avenue began at 48th street after it stopped around 65th. I intentionally walked through Hudson avenue at first so I could get a feel for about what percentage of my area is lit up.

    One thing I did notice is that I had a pretty steady full 4 bar signal of 4G where LTE was not active which I never saw much of before, possibly because I’m picking up PCS HSPA+(although I don’t know how to test for it on a note 2. Feel free to interject with a tip if you want more information on North jersey LTE/HSPA+)

    Tomorrow I will be going through Palisade and Kennedy.,… I’m also open to taking requests in my area if its not too out of the way.(I reserve the right to say ‘no’, of course.)

    Enjoy!
